Derby woke up like this...
Restoration of 1973 2002 Tesoro and 1967 1600 Derby
Derby woke up like this...
It’s time to get some tacos with Tesoro on 2002sday at 2PM! 😉🌮
‘Lisa, you have Tesoro, why did you buy Derby?’ ‘Because.....’ 😘
How many of you can relate?
I’m excited and honored to say that TESORO has been selected to be included at the BMW FOUNDATION’s 50th anniversary for the 2002s! I have arranged for TESORO to be there the second half of the year. I hope in this way, people from the East Coast can get a glimpse of TESORO too.. 😉
Tesoro glowing for 2018! Love how Tesoro looks in front of this Frank Lloyd Wright building... such an art deco/vintage feel under this warm lighting....

Some women have a heel fetish... I have a steering wheel fetish... 🙃 I collect vintage BMW steering wheels. 9 wheels total.
Starting top to bottom...
2 380 GT GLAS wheels
380 Horn Ring
400 NK wheel
2 380 Petri’s
The other two are in TESORO and DERBY.
One of these will be going in TESORO ... can you guess which one? 😏
Last drive of 2017! Looking forward to many more drives and adventures in 2018! Have a wonderful New Year everyone! And always#DRIVETASTEFULLY
PS: I absolutely 💖 the mud flaps on Derby! 😍

Hate to see you go..... but love to watch you leave....
Hope some of you can make it this Saturday Nov 4th in Sausalito! Would be nice to have some 02 support amongst the vintage Alfa Romeo's and vintage Ferrari's ! ;-)
From Biscotti Cars and Coffee in Sausalito, CA :
Anyone who thinks that the car gene is limited to males, our November Feature Car owner will afford a welcome surprise. The owner of our car is a beautiful lady with exceptional expertise regarding the marque of her car who has supervised expert restoration on her 2002 model of that marque.
She appears to be blessed with an autosomal dominant car gene. This blessing has also benefitted some expert mechanics with large mortgages and college tuition expenses. The results in our Feature Car show the close correlation between restoration quality and reward for skilled automotive craftsmen. Such a clear link between performance and reward is regrettably not always evident with those who feed at the public trough kept full by hapless taxpayers.
You are cordially invited to attend Biscotti and Cars from
8-10 AM on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at Poggio in Sausalito. Free parking for attendees is available during the event in the Bank of America parking lot across the street from Poggio. You may view many beautiful cars driven into this lot by attendees at our November event.
Our November 2017 Feature Car is a stunning and
immaculate BMW 2002 in deep gloss black paint.
This 2002 car is owed by Lisa O2Princess who is
a true BMW aficionado. This 2002 was featured in
a lengthy article in Petrolicious. Furthermore Lisa's
original, lightly restored BMW 1600 was recently
featured on the TV Program Jay Leno's Garage .
Woke up in Fredericksburg, TX and what a wonderful day for a drive! Thank you for hosting a fun 02berfest 2017 weekend Terry Sayther ! Great to meet some new 2002 friends!
Here are some pics!
Great to meet Jean Paul with his pretty little Baur, thank you for allowing me to drive it and thanks for the ride in the Colorado Glas car!
So wonderful to meet Zinz and papa, Greg Resa, Rudy M., Mike Pugh, Terry, Debbie, Joey, the two Paul's, Steve Carsten, the two Tims and other's who's names I think I forgot !
and Andrew Wilson drove his Athena all the way from Maine for this event! (This guy is everywhere! LOL)
It was such a quick weekend, but I'm glad I was able to attend and got to see the backroads of Austin and the cars... ! This is gonna be a bucket list item for Tesoro, hope we can make TX one day!
While out on an afternoon drive, I stopped in to Thank our local fire department for their service in help containing the devastating North Bay fires. Thank you to our first responders! 💗 No words seem adequate to express our admiration and gratitude for the brave men and women who run towards danger to selflessly save others! Our hearts go out to you and those affected by the fires. If you would like to help contribute to those affected by the fires, Novato fire Dept has provided this link to contribute donations. https://www.redwoodcu.org/northbayfirerelief Happy Friday!
Happy #2002sday ! So cool to see this digital artist incorporate TESORO in their artwork! 😍@bentherules
I can always appreciate any kind of art... especially 2002 art!
Feeling nostalgic on this lazy Sunday... vinyl records or vinyl seats?
I like them both!
Love you my little beast! You’re not old, you’re Vintage! 😘
Derby at the stables!
Tesoro's custom chrome bumpers have the horn bumper overriders which are just one of the accents that are period correct for only the US spec 1973 2002s, the last year of the roundies.
(same with the shallow bucket grilles) !
Not very often where I get to 'play dress' up with my cars... I love how this dress matches Tesoro's jewel tip hirschmann antenna!
Cruising over the Richmond Bridge during sunrise... Tesoro is a thoroughbred.... aching to be driven.... FAST! As the driver, It's how I wanted him to be built....
