  1. What's new in this club
  2. Hi Heather, your request to join our fb page was approved this morning. That would definitely be a great place to start. Scott Sislane
  3. Good morning folks. This is my first post in this forum. I tried to join the facebook page but have not received an invite yet (I may not have done it correctly - don't use FB hardly at all). I would like some advice in how to go about selling '73 2002. I am in central Massachusetts and do not have the means/know how in how to ship a car, so I thought to post here in this local Club. Would posting here in this forum be the best place to list the car, or should I wait to see if I get an invite to the FB page?
  4. I'm looking for more advice. I'll post in the tech forum? Thanks.
  5. Thanks for your replies and information. The 3 row champion has arrived but is 3" thick where as the stock is 2" thick. Now the timing issue Andrew. I believe may be off and needs looking into. What do you mean by tired distributor, worn out or sticking parts? I also now have a hot spark electronic ignition. Not yet installed.
  6. With a stock radiator, 70° thermostat & timing set to 32° full advance at 3500, temperature should be just below 1/2 on the gauge. A tired distributor or off timing will cause over heating.
  7. Hi Bart, You'd be best off joining our fb page https://www.facebook.com/groups/bmw2002us/?ref=share As for the radiator, there's really no reason to get a special radiator, IMHP. The stock radiator if freshly re-cored, is great. If that doesn't work, I'd guess your issue is elsewhere. Have you completely flushed the block & head? Then refilled & burped? Water pump replaced?

  8. Hi all, I'm in Southampton, MA. Currently working on my brothers 1973 2002. Motor has been rebuilt with a 292 cam, it has a weber redline carb, I'm having some overheating issues and about to buy a new radiator. "Champion" triple row aluminum, E12 head cylinders bored up once I forget what compression pistons we used, I'll look into that later. Anyhow currently a 71* thermostat. Is the forum alive?
  9. Great story. Would love to take the ride out to Kimball's this Summer (fingers COVID-crossed).
  10. Greetings all. In 2017 I acquired the outdoor barn find '71 2002 you see below and in my profile pic. I know the previous owner through a mutual friend, and he knew I had owned and worked on BMW 2002s previously. He acquired it in pristine condition in 1987, which is the same year I finally got rid of my '72 Riviera Blue 2002, after my foot went through the floorboards. My father purchased that car in 1973 from an auto auction. It was only one year old, had 37,000 miles, and had been hit in the front and totaled. My dad was a mechanical genius when it came to cars and he taught me a lot. We found a 2002 in a junkyard that had been hit in the rear, so we grabbed the hood and nose, did some welding, body work and painting, and got it on the road. He drove it daily for 10 years then gave it to me. I drove it through college and grad school and was sad to see it go. I also had a 1600 rust bucket in for a while. From 2002 to 2014 I built a GT40 replica to about 80% completion but had to sell the project. Last year I helped a buddy do a mechanical restoration on an '86 Alfa Spyder, where I honed some of my sheet metal skills. Try replacing a spare tire carrier in one of those... Anyway, it's time to get started in this 2002 project. I have a 1994 E36 318i in my driveway that will donate its M42 engine, G250 tranny, LSD and assorted bits to the 2002. The 2002 has a Weber-carbed M10 that has had new internals, racing pistons, etc. I really want to do an S14 swap but those engines are unobtainium now, so I'll see what I can squeeze out of the M42. That's the story for now. I live just a few miles from Kimball's Ice Cream in Lancaster, where they do a car show every Friday in the summer. Seems to be mostly American muscle but I'd welcome an opportunity to meet some of you. Thanks for listening.
  11. That's a nice, clean 2002 you have there. Welcome. I'm also in central Mass, and have owned 2002s previously.

  15. 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
  16. Hi Henry, Wow... you guys have quite the set-up there! Wish I was down your way. We have lots of 02ers in your area. Our group is mostly on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/bmw2002us/ Did you already find a new person to share space?? Scott Sislane
  17. Hi Northeast FAQers! I'm looking for a car enthusiast in need of some garage space in northeast Connecticut. I have a garage space in Bethlehem CT that I share with a few buds for wrenching on our 2002 race cars, restoration projects and drinking beer on a Saturday night. One of our esteemed faq colleagues relocated and moved his cars closer to home. So, this leaves us with some space that we are hoping to fill with a car enthusiast who needs a place to wrench or hide a project from a significant other and can contribute some $ towards the rent. All car people would be welcome, but an 2002 fan would probably get the most out of it since you'd be sharing space with some 02 guys. Quite a few FAQers have come through to wrench on a race weekend, pick up a spare part or talk shop and have a beer. The shop has a decent amount of work space, we fit about 6-8 cars in the garage. We also have an office area that we use for indoor parts storage. Also, there is a nice parking space outside where we keep a couple parts cars and race trailer. Some pics of the shop over the years are below. If you or someone you know is in need of some space and interested, send me a message and we can share contact info. Cheers! Henry
  18. Hi Mark, thanks. She is actually a 2002, my old one was the 1600-2. Nice bike. here is the '02 w/ another Brit toy.
  19. Similar taste in cars. I had a '70 TR6 before the family came along. My current '73 2002 is my re-entry into the vintage world. I did manage to squeeze a '70 Triumph Daytona (motorcycle) into my garage with all the kids bikes and toys over the last few years. Enjoy the 1600-2, it looks like a beauty.
  20. Hi All, new owner in Central Mass here. I had a 1600-2 back in college, when I met my Wife and she suggested we add one to the fleet. I found this one; '74 in golf, very original. She joins a few other vintage cars and trucks in the fleet, and doesn't need much major, just a few little things. Look forward to joining the forum.
  21. Greetings. I am looking for a repair/restoration shop for my '73 2002. Looking to have the motor hum and enhance interior. Thanks, Young Dave
  22. Hello All, Hopefully everyone is dusting off the cars and getting ready for another season! We’ve planned a Spring Drive that should allow everyone to have time for oil changes, cleaning up and maybe some repairs or upgrades knocked-off the list! We will be meeting at our original meeting place from 2009. When: Saturday, May 19th at 10:00 AM Where: Green Street Lot, 2 Unicorn St, Newburyport, MA 01950 12:00 Noon we will make our way to the Riverwalk Brewery for lunch: http://riverwalkbrewing.com/craft-brewery-near/ 40 Parker Street Newburypor
  23. I am in Boston, and I am currently looking into someone in Philly, not VAC but Mike Yaskin at Bavarian Specialties, also I have been talking to Marc Feinstein at German Performance up here in Boston, any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you, Richard
