  1. What's new in this club
  2. at one point there was two out there. One nearly restored just needed some assembly and another that was in really rough shape.
  3. Folks, For sale a 1976 red with black interior. Needs work to get running and back on the road. Doors and fenders done. Solid restoration candidate. Car is in Southern Ontario. Looking for 2000 or best offer Car has a crack free dash! Let me know if your interested or require more info.
  4. I just got mine rebuild 2 weeks ago by Trust Transmission in Kitchener. The owner John did a great job and i got it back within a week. http://www.trusttransmission.ca/ It looks like new and it shifts like new.
  5. Nope: Found a replacement output flange and opted not to tough the internals of the tranny. I did go to a shop on the corner of Geary and Ossington, here in Toronto, and they said they could do it, but I would need to find all the parts for the 245. No simple task. Found some stuff on the FAq but again, didn't pursue it. Roman
  6. Vintage car bonanza on a golf course with racing happening throughout a central part of pittsburgh. Lots of amazing cars. https://www.pvgp.org/
  7. Did you find someone to rebuild your transmission in the GTA? i need mine rebuild.

  9. I thought the red deer car looked like a basket case, I will have to look again
  10. Driving down to Pittsburgh again for the Vintage Grand Prix July 19th weekend. Looking forward to the oompapa band and the snorker sausages with beer in the beer tent. Anyone else heading from Toronto? Just need to get my tranny back into the car. Roman
  11. Any Canadians driving down there? https://www.eventbrite.com/e/passion-50-years-of-bmw-cars-community-tickets-59169051225?fbclid=IwAR0lGFSjwZiff2CzyJ3cTS1A9H3IUh7P8D_qFRkbdMdjT2KZgmWFIvsn9KE
  12. Just a quick note to the Vancouver BC folks. I am cleaning up some parts boxes and trying to rationalize what I am keeping. I have some good used stuff that doesn't necessarily make sense to mail but would be good on a daily. Like a good used set of rear brake shoes, still lots of meat, I replaced them when I went through the system. Good used CV joint boots etc etc. Good starter... I will have a better idea after I go through the boxes. But think in terms of parts for regular maintenance, and stock parts from common upgrades. I have a tendency to replace everything, even if only one of them is about to fail. I do this because it is hard for me to set aside time, and for the car to be out of commission is not an option. So I have to order every part that I think I may need, and then do the project and replace something that has a lot more life in it. Pm me if you are in Vancouver. I will hopefully be at Spanish banks on the 13th, we can do the exchange there. The next step is putting them on here. The step after that is a dumpster (not really I will just hold onto the OEM parts until they become rare)
  13. New member in Calgary with a mild basketcase. Have some other projects on the go but might get in to this next winter. Added it to the registry. Not far from the guy in Cochrane on here and I had previously watched the header build videos before seeing them linked here. Small world.
  14. Here's a link: https://www.cbp.gov/trade/basic-import-export/export-docs/motor-vehicle Need to get paper work to border you plan to cross 72 hrs in advance. They do a title check on it. Wesite is pretty thorough and you can call the border as well to make sure you have all the paper work figured out. I did it a while back but didn't have a problem. YThe border people were quite helpful. Good luck Roman
  15. I know there is a guy who has a 72 tii out in red deer. 90% complete restoration I think the grille and the seats need to be installed but are all there. Color looks to be granada. He's asking 15k needs slight work but it would be 100% worth it. From the pictures it looks really really good. Check for it on Kijiji there's also a guy in Edmonton looking for 15 for a running driving base 2002. Either way if I had the cash I would be picking up the tii in red deer. Looks like a lot of work went into it. Good luck!
  16. Looking for the following: Front grilles Center grille Euro turn signals Rear roundie tailights Front and rear bumpers Beltline trim Always looking for ti parts to help with my ti restoration. All parts should be OEM BMW in NOS or excellent condition. Let me know what you have.
  17. Folks, Looking for a nice driver roundie 2002, ti or tii. Must be legally on the road, solid body and in Canada. Ideal car would be a ti, tii in inka. Let me know what you have or if you know where any are hiding.
  18. I plan to move me and my car to Victoria later this year and I’m wondering if anyone has recent recent experience with our friendly borders (insert irony and sarcasm here). Years ago I imported my ‘62 700 to Quebec and all I had to do was drive the car to the border, sign some paperwork and be on my way. Now I hear you have to pay an American Customs broker etc etc Any advice would be helpful - thanks!
  19. No idea if it's a clone or the real deal, but I always see it driving along 16th ave near Main in Vancouver. Stunning car, you may have seen me gawking at the car passing by a few times.
  20. Anyone here in Southern Ontario know of a reputable transmission repair shop that could rebuild my getrag 245 - 5 speed. Suffered a bit during my limp back from Cape Breton. Roman
  21. I am back from my road trip to Nashville TN, Everything went well. In Ohio I thought that crease was running out of my left front wheel bearing. Found this BMW specialist that used to Race 02's. Just Blau Mit Weiss, 3251 Highland Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45213 https://www.facebook.com/Just-BlauMitWeiss-549855058423292/?ref=page_internal . The owner John and his team right away made time for us and checked the wheel bearing. Lucky there was nothing wrong and he checked all vital points of the car before we went back on the road again. When we left the shop the rain finally stopped and the rest of the week it was sun and temperatures between 30 and 35 degrees. Monday afternoon we visit Lane motor museum Nashville https://www.lanemotormuseum.org . This museum has a huge European car collection including a BMW 320 made by Baur from 1938. https://www.lanemotormuseum.org/collection/cars/item/bmw-320-1938 In the Basement of the building are about 400 cars that are not on display and we got a private tour to see them. This is one of the advantages of showing up with a rare car. Friday morning we left Nashville to drive the back roads back home, after 800km of back roads it was time to hit the Highway. It was like my car was happy to get on the autobahn, no more traffic lights.
  22. Roeland... hows the trip going? old cars love to go fast!!! drove my 73tii out to Cape Breton and back this summer... loves it at a buck 40 all the way.
  23. Left home Saturday morning. First delay was already at the peace bridge (fort Erie). Spent 2 hours to cross the boarder. Then the rain started and 36 hours later it's still raining non stop. Not the weather you want with an convertible. Also my speedometer stopped working counting but it still tells me the speed. It's Sunday evening and we are close to Cincinnati Ohio. I noticed that grease on my front rims coming out of the wheel bearing. Want to clean the bearings in the morning and put new grease in it. Probably old grease, bad roads, and high speed is not good for a 46y old car.
