    '74 2002 pre-purchase inspection?

    You can try Bemer Motor on Richmond. They can do pre-inspection and can tow broken vehicles. Ask me how I know. Ask for Ismael Martinez and explain what you want to do. As for repairs on 02’s in Houston, there are other alternatives. Bemer fixed a Getrag tranny for a neigbor of mine on a 74 02. Others might have different experience but they can and do know 02’s. Good luck JP
  3. Hello all - I'm new to 2002s, but not to BMWs. Was getting an emissions inspection done on my daily driver in NW Houston, noticed a 74 2002 back in a field - asked about it, they're claiming it was abandoned by the owner, it's theirs due to the storage costs. Can anyone suggest a person capable of doing an inspection on it - in place? They said it needs driveshafts, but that otherwise it runs. With just a cursory looking at it it looked pretty clean. I know there's may ways a car of this age could need a lot of work, so I'm interested in someone who'd be able to give me an expert opinion. Too far away to convince Terry Sather to come look at it, I need the NW Houston equivalent of him Thanks, Barrett

    Anyone have an alternator in Austin?

    Thanks. It turns out Terry has one (or can order one) so I think I’m good.

    Anyone have an alternator in Austin?

    Might try posting that on the Eurotic of Austin Facebook group. Lots of local E30 guys in that group. Several of which have come out to our monthly C&C. Greg
  7. Long version - Short version - Sputter’s alternator appears to be dead, and I want to be able to do the COTA thing on Sat. Does anyone in town have a 320i alternator in Austin I could buy?
  8. https://svra.com/gtb/?lib=product&pid=511&cat=11 I am not sure if you know this, but the Sports Car Vintage Racing Association is having their US Vintage Nationals at COTA in Austin. Race weekend is November 1-4. Associated with that (see link above) is the Hagerty Show and Shine Car Show. For $75, you get two passes to enjoy the racing, guided tour of the paddock, on-track with your car and other goodies. I decided to take the plunge today. It would be neat if we had a few vintage BMWs parked all together and on track together. Let me me know if this is something you’re interested in.

    Hill Country Fall Trip Possibly

    Terry's 02berfest is an excellent event! Worth the trip from far away lands like Maine. Unable to make this year's due to a scheduling conflict with the Classic CCA.

    Hill Country Fall Trip Possibly

    Terry's 02berfest is the last weekend of October in Fredericksburg. There will be lots of 02s that make the event. There's another thread that has some pics from previous Fall and Spring 02berfests. This Falls 02berfest is looking like a good one with several out of state 02rs making their way to attend. Greg

    Hill Country Fall Trip Possibly

    It has been a while since I have heard of something like this, but is there any interests to have a greater Texas 02 group meet this fall like in Fredericksburg? If not enough interests what about opening to the greater German car group (MB, Audi, VW and yes even Porsche). Thoughts? Justin

    Thank you for the information Greg. Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it down Saturday. My son has a football game in the morning. Dang, one of these days I will make it. Will look for the information for Terry’s drive. Thank you! Anthony

    You can definitely drive in for the day Saturday morning. We've had a few Houston 02rs do it in years past. Leave early enough to get to the Hanger Diner for breakfast Saturday morning. That's the meeting place and start of Saturday's hill country drive. Terry and Debbie put together a good drive that will have us zipping around the area with a few scenic stops and lunch break. More driving after lunch that usually wraps up around 3pm-4pm if I recall correctly. Not uncommon to have a few head out after lunch. Terry should be putting out an email soon for the 02berfest. I'll post something on here and the main board when he does. Our next Austin area BMW 2002 and Vintage BMW Cars and Coffee is Saturday morning, September 15th at 8am. We meet at Mozart's Coffee Roasters on Lake Austin Blvd. We actually use the Hula Hut parking lot since they aren't open in the mornings. Get there early because the lower lot we use has filled up the last two months. Greg Resa greg.resa@gmail.com cell 512-680-6159

    Happy Saturday all. Is Terrys event something that I could drive to for a day or is staying the weekend the best? F1 is the weekend prior and we will be there for 4 days. Trying to plan the best. Can I also get on a email list or something for reminders on gatherings or things people might be going to? anthonywerre@gmail.com

    Front Subframe?

    While cleaning up my engine bay and suspension, I found the a PO hacked up the front subframe (cut slots where the swing arm bolts to the subframe. I can weld it up but would rather buy one that has the holes exactly where intended. Anyone got one cheap? Beers on me if you are near Houston. Thanks.

    Our August Austin area BMW 2002 and Vintage BMW Cars and Coffee is Saturday 8/18. We meet at Mozarts Coffee on Lake Austin Blvd at 8am. We actually use the Hula Hut parking lot since they aren't open at that time. We are typically there until 9:30 and then a group of us head over and grab a bite down the street at Maudie's Tex-Mex. More than welcome to join us if you can fit it in! Greg Resa
  22. Hey everyone! I've just booked a project for work in DFW (irving to be specific) for 6 weeks (8/19-9/29). I'd be pretty excited to meet some new folks and talk about BMW's. Is there anything going on in the area around then? I'll have a lot of free time in the evenings during the week to check out DFW, but plan to do some driving on the weekends (austin/houston). Hope to see you soon! Jake
