In recent weeks I've found myself checking Petrolicious' YouTube channel for some great videos but I hadn't really found what I was looking for. And then this week it posted this.

It's the story of a lady and her 2002.

And while I am not one of those male feminist types, you had to admit that it's not too often you come across a lady who's a complete and utter gearhead. Lisa, as you'll soon find out, is that lady.

You can see it in her vehicle. Not only has she owned several 2002s, she's done this particular car up in a certain way. Clearly, she really knows what she's looking for. As you'd expect from Petrolicious, the cinematography and story is a bit romantic.

I don't think I'd want it any other way.

So, buckle up and take a ride with Lisa. We're sure you won't want to miss this one.

This week we’re a few hours north of the Petrolicious HQ in Los Angeles as we follow Lisa and her tastefully modified E10 through the forested curves and rolling highlands of the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s her third 2002 so far, but this one was always defined as her lifetime car—a keeper—and the license plate tells you all you need to know in that regard: translated from Latin, tesoro means treasure, and after a restoration prompted by some unfortunately clumsy tow-truck maneuvering, that’s exactly what Lisa’s 2002 has become. It’s exactly as she pictured it in her head, and with a host of choice aftermarket parts from the likes of BBS, Weber, and Recaro, we imagine she’s not alone in her admiration for this classic German coupe.
