    Swap & Show 2020

    BayArea 02 Swap & Show, 2 May 2020, Marina at Brisbane, California. As before, the address is 500 Sierra Point Parkway, along the Bay on the North side of Sierra Point. Preregister on Motorsportreg (see link below). Preregistration is $25 while the on-site fee on 2 May will be $30. Kile Brekke continues to show his artistic flare with the graphics and has again added his art for our T-shirts and printed materials; we expect the shirts, posters and cards to be popular once again! Please preregister early to help us plan. Preregistration will open on 1 March at [Preregistration for Swap & Show-2020 on MotorsportREG]. We expect it to end on 26 April 2020, so do NOT plan on a last-minute signup (we need a few days to get stuff ready...). Note— Swap & Show visitors are welcome! There is no fee for entry if you do not show your car or swap parts. However, we strongly encourage anyone with a BMW of our vintage to bring your car to display, no matter how mundane your daily driver (dirt, rust and all, which may be surprisingly photogenic) or how Instagram-friendly your restoration. There is no judging your car so there will be no points for extra dirt, missing dirt, artistic (!?) rust or matching luggage. We smile at all BMW's and photographs or videos are welcome (but NO drones over cars)! Larry
  9. VIN: 2762669Mileage: unknownLocation: Sunnyvale, CAPrice: $9000 obo Photos: https://flic.kr/s/aHskG6yg1rTLDRGood: rare cool color, runs and drives surprisingly well, numbers match, no structural rust, it’s a roundie tii.Bad: salvage title, needs just about everything.OverviewI’ve owned this 2002tii since August of 2016. I picked it up as a project, and after three years I don’t have the time or resources to continue working on it. I don’t know any history on this car before 2001, when it was rescued from a field in Eureka, where it had been sitting in pieces for an unknown amount of time. I believe the car had rear-left quarter damage at that time. In late 2004 it was purchased by a gentleman near Petaluma who built it up using a mish-mash of parts that he had available. Installed currently is a tii motor (#2760341, not original). I believe the rear end damage was repaired and the car repainted below the beltline trim. Under that same ownership, the car was hit in the back again, the bodywork repaired, and left in primer, how it sits today. I believe one of these hits resulted in a Salvage CA title. When I purchased the car I made an effort to track down the original numbers-matching block, which comes with the car.The original color of the car is Ceylon, which is a rare shade of gold. Today the car is a patchwork of different hues of gold where paintwork was performed, capped off at the back with a brown later decklid and primer around the rear panels. All body trim is rough, but present. Seals and glass are worn. There are spots of rust around the rear windshield. The spare tire well is rotted through. There is some bubbling at the rockers and the bottom of the front and rear panels. On the upside, the floors, frame rails, and shock towers do not show rust. While the back has been damaged, the front seems to have made it through the years intact. There is no ‘snorkel,’ indicating that this is its original nose. Things look pretty straight up there.The interior is a hodgepodge of 02 parts throughout the years. The dash is not a tii dash, but I have one (with some cracks) that will come with the car. The seats are mismatched E21 Recaros and the fabric is torn up. The front door cards came off a car that had speakers added, there are no speakers now and the door sheetmetal has not been cut up for speakers.As mentioned, a non-matching tii motor is installed (#2760341). Sale will include the original numbers-matching block, an E12 head, and some ancillary parts. A compression test performed at the end of 2019 showed compression at 147/143/118/138. In my ownership the spark plugs, wires, distributor rotor, cap, and points were replaced. Valves clearances have been adjusted, fuel injection linkages reset and lubricated, and various crisply hoses and fuel lines replaced. The battery and starter were replaced in the last month. Brake and clutch master cylinders have been replaced under my ownership. The motor runs fine but it would be a good idea to rebuild the original numbers-matching motor to get back to original performance. The clutch works well. I rebuilt the shifter linkage in my ownership, the 4-speed transmission works fine but can give a small grind into 4th gear.The steering feels good and tight. The brakes work well, I installed braided brake hoses. The car is lowered, I do not know which springs, but the ride is nice. Sporty but not too stiff. The wheels are 14” dog-dish style used on the Neue Klasse sedans, someone sprayed them gold at some point and I’ve plasti-dipped them black.The lights work for the most part, I just replaced the left headlamp, which was cracked. The aftermarket head unit jammed with the faceplate deployed, so no tunes at the moment. There are two speakers in the rear parcel shelf.It’s a charming little car. It’s not going to be a perfect car so you are free to make it what you wish. You could also just drive it as-is and enjoy the great local 2002 community and the fun events they put on through the year.Please note that the odometer has not worked while I’ve had the car. I have no idea of mileage considering the history of the car, and the cluster may not be the original one, so I don’t want to make any guesses about mileage.I’m looking for $9k OBO. I’m located in Sunnyvale, near Levi stadium. Thanks for your interest.
  10. Good luck Wes. I'd be down but date won't work.
  11. Hi there! One last request Looking for a 2002 for a music video shoot on Wednesday Jan 29th, 9am in Alameda (old naval base area). Let me know if you'd wanna play! Meals will be provided, and possibly a bit of compensation too. Feel free to email [email protected] or reply here. Thanks for considering! -Wes
  12. Thanks for thinking of me, I really appreciate it. I think I should close this thread. I kind of went off in a completely different direction when a car became available that was too good to resist. I'm going to sell my Ceylon car and watch the 2002 world from the sidelines for a while.
  13. @magnus not sure if you found a roundie, but I ran across one in burlingame while picking up a rear diff last weekend. it is at autohaus exec (https://www.yelp.com/biz/autohaus-exec909-burlingame). Its a 72 with flares, red, fully built. The guy selling it there is named Paul. I think he said he was gonna pull the motor and trans and sell the rest, but dont take my word as exact for that detail. I don't have any ties to this sale. just got to talking with the guy and he was showing me all his projects and cars for sale.
  14. until
    We will gather in Parking Lot 3 behind Loma Coffee Bar. Neue Klasse und Kaffee is a monthly gathering of BMW Neue Klasse cars in San Francisco Bay Area. We mostly meet on the third Saturday of every month. BMW 2002 FAQ will be there from 8am to 11am with some Donuts. Coffee will be available at Loma Coffee Bar. http://neueklasseundkaffee.com
  15. Heya, just looping back here! Anyone interested in helping out and making their car famous at the end of the month? Weekday an issue? I can reschedule to a weekend Looking for compensation? Let me know -Wes
  16. So magnus, I will be selling a '72 tii soon. I still haven't found a mechanic to look at the squeaky steering column (thanks for your advice, btw!), but perhaps you can take over that chore (I suspect the horn ring needs grease, haven't time to get in there or find a mechanic to do it yet). 🙂The car is now in SF, rather than Sacramento. PM me for more details if interested.
  17. Hello fellow bay area '02 owners. I've decided that my Ceylon car is too much of a project given my resources at this time. I'm looking to get into a roundie that is more complete. I'm interested to know if anyone in the area is selling, or knows of someone selling a roundie that's straight, complete, and without rust. Rough or older paint is actually a positive for me because I want to drive it and collect rock chips on the great roads we have in this area. It needs to be a manual. I'd love to get into another tii if the price is right, but I would consider a non-tii if it's a good match. Please feel free to respond here or PM me if you know of a car that might be a good fit. Cheers.
  18. Hi all! I'm Wes, a local musician working on a new music video. I fortuitously ran into many of you at Red's Java House after your 49 Mile Drive a few weeks back, and fell in love with your cars (click on my profile to see more...) I'm making a music video and would love to feature one of your gorgeous cars in it. It won't be driven, just parked and I'll be singing near it. Check out the below pics for an idea of what I'm imagining. The date would be either Jan 28 or 29 in the daytime, and would last around 2 hours total in SF, at the lot near Red's (Pier 30) or close by. If you're interested in having your car made locally famous (and hopefully world famous!) please: click here and write which date(s) you're possibly available and comment your email address below so I can follow up! You can also email [email protected] if you don't want your contact info public And feel free to lurk me on my website to learn more: www.wesleslie.com Thanks for considering, Wes
  19. Yes, you must enter an active membership number. We are seeing many 2002 owners that have left the club rejoin just to be part of this chapter. Some 2002, and other vintage car owners, have expressed that they feel somewhat disenfranchised from the club. We on the board are listening and want to do something about it. From 2002 only events at O'fests and additional 2002 apparel availability at the club store to forming this chapter. We are hoping those who have left will rejoin and recognize that the club is not just about new cars and new members, but celebrating where we came from and who got us where we are today. I believe the $48 ($4 a month) for all the club provides is a deal. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.....
  20. That's my understanding, as I was about to sign it but couldn't as I'm not a current BMW CCA member. Going to do so come Jan 1st though... Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  21. Hi - do you need to be a current BMW CCA member to sign this petition?
  22. My name is Jeff Gomon. I am Three things, a 2002 owner, South Central Region VP/National Board Member and lastly, in need of your help. Terry Sayther has approached the Board and requested the formation of a stand alone non-geographical BMW CCA 2002 chapter. This chapter would allow for greater communication of 2002 owners and groups everywhere. To get things started signatures from 250 members are needed for the chapter petition. We are over 1/2 way there and need your help. Further, once the chapter has its charter, we will hold elections for a Board and Area "Governors" in all regions. Follow the link below for more info and sign the petition. Below is Terry's message. Thank you!! ------------------------------------------------------------- "We're working our way toward the 250 signatures we need to form a 2002 Chapter of the BMW CCA, and we are over half way there! But…that was the easy half. We need more that a hundred additional CCA Member signatures to meet the requirement. SO---I'd like all of you to think of additional ways we might get more people to sign up, rejoin the club so that you can sign up, give membership gifts so that your friends can sign up, and spread the word! Go to https://2002sforever.net/sign-the-petition/ and sign up now! We are under-represented on the west coast---somebody get those guys motivated, please If you've been procrastinating---stop that! Sign up today. Do it! Many thanks for those of you out there who have been spreading the word and encouraging friends. We appreciate your efforts! Happy Holidays---Terry Terry Sayther Vintage Bimmers [email protected] Terry Sayther Automotive 512-442-1361
  23. Very nice! I was fortunate enough to have bought mine from a friend. Nothing better than to buy a car from a trusted friend with a known history. He set a fair price and it was a done deal. He was happy knowing the car would be well taken care of. Win-win for both of us.
  24. Thanks for the word! Sold the car yesterday, to someone I knew. I mentioned I was looking to sell my car, and he said he wanted it.
  25. Kristo, Your post is stale, but if you’re still seeking advice, here my ‘02 cents worth... Decide if you want to sell/negotiate direct to a private party or auction it through a third party. If the former, consider posting ads on local/regional bmw enthusiast sites (such as this one, BMW CCA, bimmerforums), followed by larger audience sites (such as Hemings). If the later, consider Bring a Trailer, where ‘02s regularly come up for sale and past sales/prices are archived to help both buyers and sellers determine market pricing. Read some of the archived auctions to get a sense of the questions and comments the BaT community can throw out there (it can be a tough crowd, especially for sellers who don’t make full disclosures on their cars) In either case, it will take time and effort on your part to get the best price for your car. Another option is to attend the BA02 Swap and Show in May and put a 4Sale sign on it in the swap meet lot or on the show field. Have you tried to sell or sold your car yet?
