  1. What's new in this club
  2. Oh wow! Id curious to see this conversion as well!
  3. My tie rods are toast. Any shop recommendation near Daly City?
  4. I’ve had it for about three years. It’s actually a Palo Alto car from new that I’ve known since middle school as the previous owner used to rent a house in the neighborhood that I grew up in. He kept very good care of it. When I purchased it, it had been garaged for 20 years so it took a bit of doing to get it roadworthy again. Unfortunately, about three months after that I was rear-ended which led to a pretty comprehensive restoration that I’ve continued to finesse. I drive it more than I should probably.
  5. Cool - I’m in Menlo Park myself. There are a few of us in the Menlo Park - Palo Alto area. See you around!
  6. Excited to see you there. I may try to convince one of my two kids. So far they've said, "I want to go and see the cars, but I know you're going to start talking to people and want to stay for hours." TBD
  7. BGB - I found it on Craigslist in Huntington Beach. Someone on this forum suggested I scan it for an occasional good find. I went right from that message to discover this car. Good fortune.
  8. 1. Yes. I'm usually at that Peets most mornings, working in my car. 2. Your car was an inspiration. I saw it almost daily when I went to pick up groceries and get coffee. It got prettier every time I saw it. 3. I'm curious how long you've had it? And did you get it into such great shape?
  9. Sweet car! Where did you pick this up? Was it a local car?
  10. I believe that I saw you parked outside the Peet’s next to Whole Foods Palo Alto a few days ago. You probably saw the Sahara ‘74 tii with gold mesh rims parked on the corner outside of Saint Michael’s Alley that morning. That’s me.
  11. My son and I will be at the C&C in Los Gatos this Saturday morning!
  12. Without much forethought I decided to replace my very reliable, totally functional, borderline joyless recent model car with a 1970 BMW 2002 in Colorado. The last few weeks have been unbelievably joyful for me and my teenage kids who love the ride. Excited to meet this group - this community seems amazing - and learn more about the car I'm currently the steward of. I'm an absolute beginner, so I'll probably have many questions. Hope to see some of you at this weekend's meet up. - Eric
  13. If you all drive down soon. Let me know Ill link up when you cross the Golden Gate bridge I cant do the drive any more solo, its way to boring haha
  14. curious to see the conversion - did you like how it turned out?
  15. No worries Gruizer, yeah lets get together for a drive sometime. I'm diagnosing an engine problem right now, maybe floated valves? We'll find out soon. Take care

  18. sczapiga, sorry for the late reply. I was planning on going down with my kids too, but the 02 was partially taken apart for repairs. I'm in Berkeley but I would have met up with you somewhere to drive down together. Let's see if we can zoom down there next month.
  19. Hi everyone I know many here may consider this sacrilege (please forgive! :) but I converted my '02 to electric, and now have an engine and gas parts that I would love to sell as a package. They're at the shop that did the conversion (in San Rafael). Please let me know if you're interested, make an offer, and we can arrange a time to go look at the collection of parts with the shop. Is every last nut and bolt still in the box? Maybe, but likely not, but important parts are still there. The odometer read 33K when the conversion started. I had driven the car for ~4 years before the conversion was started, but the car has been sitting unassembled, half way through a restoration for a few years, before I started the conversion. Because the car is at this shop, and I need to make arrangements to meet you there, please reach out with serious inquiries.
  20. Hey everyone, I’m taking my 02 down to Los Gatos tomorrow with my 6 year old boy to catch the cars and coffee. Is anyone rolling from mill valley or rolling through that would like to convoy down? Anyways more fun with a pack:) hit me up! Stephen
  21. Looking to put it back on the road after 20 years in storage. Can anyone here recommend sources for basic parts like brakes, fuel system and ignition? Online ordering is preferred from reputable suppliers but over the counter in the SF North Bay or East Bay would be good as well. Also Kugelfischer Injector pump service/rebuild/replace and Getrag 235/5 CR rebuild? Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Cheers!

  23. Not the 49 Mile Drive, BayArea 02's annual rally, comes to San Francisco again on December 11 (2nd Saturday in December). Watch this space for more event details as Rallymeister Pete Petras develops the route. Last year, meeting at the Presidio worked well so we might well gather there (it depends somewhat on construction at the parade grounds).
