About This Club

A local hangout for those of us 02ers in the Rocky States! (CO, MT, ID, WY, UT, AZ, & NM)
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Hey there, apologies for reviving a months-old thread, but I'm also moving to the Springs soon, and I'm hunting for similar info. I can totally understand the stress of shipping your car and trying to find a safe place to store it before you arrive. I actually discovered a long distance moving company that offers car storage options and can help with transportation logistics. It might be worth checking out if you haven't already found a solution. Otherwise, reaching out to local car enthusiast groups or even checking with nearby storage facilities could be helpful.
  3. Registered and placed a tee shirt order. Looking to have a great time, as always.
  4. Moving can be a stressful process, especially when it comes to logistics like shipping your car. If you need a safe place to store your vehicles in Co Springs, consider reaching out to a professional moving company like andyremovals.com. They can offer you storage options or even help with transportation logistics to ensure that your cars arrive safely and on time. Alternatively, you could try contacting local car enthusiasts groups in the area to see if anyone has a secure place to store your vehicles. Best of luck with your move, and I hope you find a solution that works for you!
  5. Bumping this to the top. I'm thinking about going to the 2023 event. Might trailer my 02 out, at least most of the way, in the interest of time efficiency as I have some other travel planned for that month.
  6. Not available anymore, lack of interest so going elsewhare.
  7. I just made an appointment at European Motor Cars near Mulberry and Lemay. I spoke with John, who works on the older cars, and was impressed with his knowledge. He had a Tii on the lot and an extra engine in the garage. Couldn’t get in until August 25th but I’m excited to have found someone who seems genuinely honest.
  8. Stay away from Lou’s Autobahn on Lemay. Rebuilt my engine and it would have a mismatched piston if I hadn’t stopped in and spotted it.
  9. Hello- I have a nearly fully restored 1974 tii in Fort Collins. I am searching for a shop/mechanic willing/has time to put in a e10 engine. Appreciate any recommendations.
  10. Anyone else considering attending from Colorado?
  11. Hey Gordon, I't s Dan in Franktown. Welcome. Do you still have my #? dq
  12. Welcome to Colorado! You're going to have fun driving in the high country!
  13. Thank you Greg Dunn for receiving my cars during my move from MD to CO Springs. I'm looking forward to some attending CO BMW events.
  14. Car is gone, along with all the parts except the M3 17's with new tires. Still have those if anyone is interested- they look really correct on the e36 cars.
  15. I'm trying to think of people I know down there, and will think more. There's a shop, don't know them personally, http://greggearhead.com/index.html but he's on here periodically. You can ship them to me in Fort Collins, that's a bit of a drive, but they could stay here for a bit until you get them. Side note; sell the pre-runner and get a 4wd taco while you're out there. The 2wd will have more value there and none here, and the 4wd will have less value there and way more here. I don't think the Springs gets a LOT of snow, but it gets some. And if you want to get out of town at all..
  16. Need some help with anyone living in Co Springs. I'm moving from MD to the Springs in late July and the auto shippers have give me a window of 19-23 July when they can pick up my tii and E30 to ship them to the Springs. There is a strong probability that the cars will arrive in the Springs before I do. We're not arriving in the Springs until Sun 1 AUG. Is there anyone available to store my cars until I arrive? Hopefully someone has a empty carport, garage, etc.. to keep my tii out of harms way of a possible hail storm. Don't worry about the E30, the paint is shot but it's a good running project car. PM me ASAP if you can assist. Gordon
  17. I haven't heard whether there is a drive. The Drive 4Corners website has a tickler but no info on dates/reservations/hotels
  18. 450 views. Hell, I'm selling the car, too. She decided that the STI just needed some sound mitigation (it's so loud), and she likes how "feisty" it is- no doubt, compared to a stock '95 Ti. It's a Boston Green '95 with every option available, apparently, including an LSD. I've done some work, had some paint correction done, installed wheel studs that I don't want to remove, '95 M3 17" wheels with new tires, along with 3 other sets of wheels, and all that other stuff. Just wanting to get what I paid for the car- $6k, for all of it. Car runs great.
  19. For sure. I bet I could the wife to buy into this one as she's dying to spend some time at Crusty Butt. Maybe bring the mtn bikes down for a couple days early...
  20. Hey, where is everybody? Las year we signed up, and then begged off the drives, hoping to get full value out of the D4C THIS YEAR! Thankfully, the hotel was very good about canceling our reservation so we didn't lose a penny. Mr. Schultz saved our reservation and we will hope to attend this year. Please, anyone with details or enthusiasm, post here. Andy, the tail light guy.
  21. And to conclude, we watched them cut the cake and bugged out. And for anyone thinking about the drive, it's already raining here in FC...
  22. I always considered it one of the more punishing duties of marriage. Clean socks are required!
  23. She would kill me if I left here there alone! We're already trying to figure out how to minimize our time with the 200 people that are supposed to be there. Fuck. Maybe you should crash and rescue us!
  24. Drop your wife at the wedding and come by. We'll go for a drive!
  25. Dude! Goes by the house on the way to the Poudre! (Went up and did some white water paddling the other day; it's big.) We're supposed to be in Denver for a wedding Saturday. Might be staying Saturday night, might be coming home. Shoot me a text so I have your number, would you? 970 to two too 9597
  26. The boss and I are going - taking the 435. Anyone else going? Spring Drive -- May 30th I hope the weather's as nice on this all-day drive as the roads and scenery will be... Tom

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
