  7. Hey guys, I am wondering if there's anyone who might go back and forth between Los Angeles and the Bay Area (or someone who is moving up here in one go) who can help. My car which I managed to get back after excruciating circumstances is in Los Angeles. I need to get it back home up here in the East Bay. I can pay cash for this job, not expecting anything free. I've been trying to get anyone I know with a truck/trailer to help for months and it has not gone anywhere yet. I need to get it up here so I don't lose my dream car again. Willing to pay for help, I'm just not rich as I recently had to spend my life savings extracting my wife and myself out of a bad situation. The car is clean titled in my name (no shady business) and is a rolling shell currently. I have most of the parts in a separate storage here. No engine, driveline, or interior but has suspension, brakes, and rolls easy because it's super light right now. No steering wheel lock or security features to worry about. I have given away everything that's missing from the car to other people who were struggling to make things work, so it would be really awesome if I could get a little bit of that good karma on my side. I really need it now. Thanks for looking! -Gregg
  8. LOOKING FOR ALL BMW 2002’S. COME ONE, COME ALL, TO THE 2018 PITTSBURGH VINTAGE GRAND PRIX If you have a 2002 you won’t want to miss this party. The Allegheny Chapter has selected the iconic 2002 as the model of the year and will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of our beloved 2002 while hosting the “Marque of the Year” festivities and BMW CCA Oktoberfest, July 5th through July 15, 2018. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, in its 35th year, is a ten-day motorsport festival with the purpose to raise awareness and funds for the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School. Every year the PVGP selects a Marque and this year is ours again. The Allegheny Chapter of the BMW CCA has been a ground breaker in fund raising for these worthwhile charities and have donated over $250,000. This year our goal is to donate over a $100,000 and we hope you will help. Things get started Friday, July 5 and run through July 7 at Pittsburgh International Motorsports Complex where the Allegheny Chapter will host a Vintage 2002 Race, a National Points BMW CCA Club Race and a car corral all as part of the PVGP Historics at Pitt-Race. All racers will receive lunches, a welcome reception and dinners throughout the weekend. Spectators can reserve designated space in our corral and enjoy lunches in our tent while watching the races from Spectator Hill. On Monday July 8 a select number of historical BMW’s will be on display at the PVGP Shadyside Invitational Car Show. The car show is free and open to spectators and all are encouraged to attend. If you have a vintage BMW with historical significance and would like to be part of this exclusive car show please send a bio and pictures to bmw.event.coordinator@gmail.com by June 1, 2018. The Waterfront, outside of Pittsburgh host a traditional Car Cruise Tuesday night. With over 650 cars on display you can join them for a $5.00 donation. Things start to pick up steam on Wednesday throughout Downtown Pittsburgh where vintage and classic cars will parade through town and be on display during lunch. The BMW CCA Oktoberfest will also be hosting a Concours in Point State Park. That evening the Tune up Party @ Atria’s takes place on the Roberto Clemente Bridge and PNC Park. Hundreds of cars will be on display. The Allegheny Chapter and PVGP will have a designated area for all BMW’s to enjoy the revelries. The Allegheny Chapter and the BMW CCA Oktoberfest host a welcome reception at the Carnegie Science Center on the North Shore, Thursday night from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. River transportation will be provided from Station Square where the Oktoberfest Hotel is located. Friday, we have our Grand Tour of the Laurel Highlands with the designation, Frank Lloyd Wrights, Fallingwater. This 150-mile tour will take you up into the Allegheny Mountains with guided run groups leaving downtown Pittsburgh at various times in the morning and scheduled tours of this historic landmark that have been arranged with the fine people at Fallingwater (www.fallingwater.org). Lunch will be provided at a Historic Inn nearby. That evening all are invited to join our traditional parking lot party. Where you can relax, clean your car, meet new and old friends and enjoy the sights and sounds. All 2002 Racers have an opportunity to join the PVGP Vintage Grand Prix Races, Saturday and Sunday. Here you can go back in time and race on the City streets of Schenley Parks 2.3-mile, 23 turn road course. Curbs, street lights, manhole covers and haybales, what’s there not to like. Oh, did I say over 100,000 spectators. This is a once in a life time opportunity to race with all 2002 race cars other vintage racers. On Friday night, our “Forbes Avenue of Speed” Race Car Parade & Display in nearby Squirrel Hill is a great opportunity to meet the racers and see the cars up close. Vintage racers will parade through Squirrel Hill and park on Forbes Avenue for a car show. Our corral gets started early Saturday and Sunday morning on German Hill. With All 2002’s proudly displayed and eligible for a chance at the People’s Choice awards (Best Roundie, Square and Race Car). We are expecting over 500 cars and the PVGP Car Show Saturday boast over 2500 vintage, classics and Modern era cars. Our corral on German hill near turn 13 of the race course will include lunch and our famous Bier Garden. On Sunday the Allegheny Chapter is looking to break the Guinness World Record for a make (BMW) & model (2002) in a parade (around the Schenley Park Road course). We need over 200 “2002’s to break this record currently held by the BMW Isetta.

  9. I know we have had some "clubs" in the past but they were a bit too hidden and would be lost. New way to do this seems a bit better. There are still links within the forums and there is actually a full club feature where a calendar gallery or other things can be present. Please, take a look. Become a member. BayArea02 is the test one as i am actually part of it. See you all on Saturday!
