  1. What's new in this club
  2. Started working on the fuel system first. I have some Zenith carbs off of my coupe that are good so I'll swap those out to save time, but as I started checking out the fuel tank I found it full of old gas/crud and the top side rusted through. It looks like it's isolated to that one area but I'll clean up the tank and if that's the case I'll try to fix it.
  3. 2 birds with one stone. Awesome! Hopefully it works out.
  4. That would be awesome. I live in Elk Grove but I would make that trip no problem to talk to a fellow enthusiast. I want to see what it is I’m really about to get into lol. I understand it isn’t for the faint of heart but I’m ready for the challenge. Let me know. If it happens to be next week I’ll drive over in the M3 I’m about to trade in (Thursday) to make this all happen. Thanks Mer
  5. Welcome! I need to get over and meet DanG and may be a good time to see two cars at the same time. DanG, what time-ish are you at your garage? I’d love to swing by and meet you and check out your garage and projects! Otto is local roadworthy and I’m only a few minutes away. Weekends are good too. Cheers, Rich
  6. It's official, I've moved on to the next project...
  7. Welcome! You'll find that this local forum doesn't get much use but from time to time we'll use it to connect. I'm in Roseville/Rocklin and don't have a roadworthy 2002 right now but I do have a rusty piece of crap '74 tii if you want to check it out. Let me know, I'm at my garage in Roseville most every night.
  8. Hello, i just joined the forum and i am a bonafide bimmer junkie. With that said i have yet to purchase a 2002. i currently own a 98 E36 323is and a E90 M3. I absolutely love both vehicles but in order to add a 2002 to the stable i will be parting ways with the M3...very hard decision. With that said i have been scouring many sites and the internet in general in order to get as much info as i can prior to purchasing a vehicle. You can only get so much info while surfing the web, a lot can be learned hands on. With that being said, being local to the area i thought i'd reach out to see if anyone is open to talking shop and viewing a car in person. I'd love to get your take on engine options, suspension upgrades, body shops, the whole nine yards. but most importantly i'd like to view 2002's in any stage of the process in person to have a better idea of what i'm getting myself into! I'm taking the plunge regardless, something about the 02's that i cant escape, but it'd be nice to talk to those who have been there done that prior to. i used to have a 65 C-10 3 on the tree but never a european classic. anyways i'll check back on occasion. thanks Mercaptn
  9. Yeah, I would've remembered that car.
  10. I’ve been to AutoGator over the years, I’ll for sure stop by. I’ve been all over lately, but wasn’t me in the Sahara. Mine is white with Motorsport-ish stripe down the side.
  11. There's a new Cars and Coffee getting going in Rocklin on the second Saturday of each month. That's this Saturday. I've never been but will stop by for a while, maybe we can have a good showing of old BMW's? Cars and Coffee Whitney Ranch Second Saturday of every month at 851 Old Ranch House Rd. 8am - 10am
  12. I work at Autogator and my "man cave" garage is basically next door. Stop by. By chance did you drive down Atlantic St. in the last couple days. I saw a Sahara-ish colored 02 going the other way.
  13. I’m in over in Antelope, but I like to call it The Lope’s, Hollywood of North Highlands. 😄
  14. Damn Bay Bridge! Didn’t take our 02 either, suspect strut mounts and carb issues had me second guessing the drive. We’ll hopefully sort the mounts out this weekend.
  15. A friend and I were there, neither of us in our 02s. Got some goodies in the swap and then got jammed up in traffic on the way back. Apparently someone decided to have a crash on the Bay Bridge at Treasure island. 🤬
  16. Truck turned out great! I really like the grey engine bay. 👍🏼
  17. We scored a shop manual and a Dino steering wheel. Swap meet was awesome!
  18. My son and I had a great time this year (our first) down at Brisbane. Met a lot of folks, and a few from the Sacramento area, and since my memory stinks and I can’t remember anyone’s name, posting up so we can hook up at coffee some upcoming weekends. Here’s a few pics we took.
  19. Hey, I noticed some of you are following this forum so maybe you'll see this in time. I'm heading to Car and Coffee in Folsom tomorrow morning. Hoping to be there around 7am and will stay an hour or more. Try to make it...
  20. I just bought some old quirky commercial property in Roseville that has several buildings on it. Part of the property will be my personal fun zone with some garages (that need rebuilding) and a couple other 1-1/2 car garages that are usable now. The cool thing is, one of the garages is setup as a pseudo paint booth with a built in fan and some vents for filters on the doors. It's not a sealed awesome paint booth like you'd imagine, but it will work really well for paint jobs that will need color-sanding anyway, like the ones I do in my garage at home. I'm posting this because I'd like all of you local 02 guys to be able to take advantage of it. If you're painting a few panels or an entire car i can probably help you get it done if you want to "DIY" it. I'm not a professional painter and would never call myself that, but I've probably painted 20 cars over the years from piece parts to whole cars. It's easier that you think. At least the painting part, the prep work is a different story but I'm sure you guys are already aware of that. I've got a lot on my plate that's a higher priority right now but the paint garage won't take much to get it operational. Let me know if you need some help and we'll try to make it happen...

  21. Someone rear ended my 2001 Audi. Anyone have recommendations for a Sacto area body shop? I'm thinking the repair is contained in the bumper cover. Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk

Yes, the museum is constantly updating its feature displays and currently has an amazing Fire Truck Display "To The Rescue" now through May 29th. The Light at the End of the Tunnel If you have been to the California Automobile Museum during rainy weather, you know it is famous for it's roof leak "bucket count". That is going to end this summer. The Museum has been working on the "Raise The Roof" campaign and has already raised $724,000 of the $750,000 goal. The museum has now reached out to the public and set up a website to track the final $26,000 and many car clubs are putting together a page to track their combined donations. Many of us at EuroSunday have enjoyed the benefit of meeting at the museum for many years with free admission during our events, so this is an opportunity to give back to an organization that is focused on educating and introducing young people into our car culture so it will continue into the future. Any size donation is welcome. We had around 350 cars at the Fountains for the April EuroSunday and if all 350 cars donated $75, the museum would pass the goal. Can we help the Museum reach the goal before our May 28th EuroSunday? If you would like to contribute, please follow this link https://raisetheroofcam.causevox.com/mike-eurosundaynet it is quick and easy and will link you to paypal for payment. Please share this link on your social media. It would be great to see EuroSunday at the top of the list at the end... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
