About this blog

This is a blog to follow the progress of whatever ends up happening to the 1968 BMW 1600-2 that's currently sitting in my garage.

As far I can tell, the photo above is how the vehicle sat from around 1991 or 1992 until April 2016, when the brief owner previous to me purchased it from this scrapyard.  That owner intended to use it for something but didn't, and ended up selling it to me on September 6th of this year for $600.  Before that, it was last titled to a person in 1989 to a person in Menomenie, Wisconsin.  All records of the vehicle before that are currently unknown.  

 

The only history that currently remains of the car is hidden within its mechanical and aesthetic remains, which, poor as they appear to the casual observer, do upon closer inspection reveal at least a glimmer of the faintest hope that one day this auto will take to the road again and give pleasure to its owner.  

 

And so against my better intuition, the advice of my father and all common sense, here we go.  More updates to come :)
