  1. What's new in this club
  2. hmmm...verona/zinno............if not me,then...grice?
  3. Someone in a Verona square tail drove right past my house as I was working out front and didn't stop or acknowledge. They are OFF the list 😂
  4. I spotted a squarelight Fjord 2002 with driving lights about 1 week ago. It was heading NB on the GW Parkway. I waved from my 69, but no response.
  5. You need to add your signature details - or maybe not😉
  6. Crap - can't make it work! https://gph.is/2cgp28K
  7. I got a bunch of thumbs up today also. None from any of the many bmw's I passed. Other brands and folks on lawns accounted for the signs.
  8. Each time my wife and I take our '72 out for a fun country drive we will find folks who have an '02 story or flash their headlight - like the in the '70's - and give a thumbs up. Today it we earned 5 such recognition's. 2 from BMW 2 wheelers and 3 from current BMW's driven by younger brand lovers. We decided we would keep track of them. It is great to see the roundies are recognized by a broad group.
  9. all parts gone, including a bunch of extra stuff. nothing ended up in the trash thankfully...and my shop refrigerator has been restocked with IPA....
  10. I have a buddy up there that can pick it all up whenever suits you. PM incoming. Thanks!
  11. taking the "shut in" time to clean out the parts storage. getting rid of the stuff in the below pics. FREE! that catch is...it must be picked up from my place in Alexandria, VA by Sunday 12APRIL. PICKED UP. NO shipping. NO holding past that date. anything not taken away by Sunday is going in the trash bin. take a part, take it all....just take it! FREE!! (but if you leave some good IPA i will not complain.....;-))
  12. Orange squaretail with koogle trunk lip spoiler in a driveway near alexandria ave. car look very nice from the street. this belong to anyone here? i have lived in this neighborhood for 20 years and have never seen this car before...
  13. 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
  14. Thanks for the great description and info, Jim! Congrats on the new E30 as well! I'm still gonna try to find someone to look over my shoulder as I do it. If I could convince you, Grice, Marshall, or all of you to stop by we could have a great little get together. Maybe I could entice people with the world's best crabcakes and some good beers? 🙂
  15. You should be able to do this very easily yourself. Just put the engine at TDC for cylinder # 1 and remove the old distributor (keeping track of where the rotor pointed to the # 1 cylinder plug wire). Insert the 123 dizzy lining up the rotor so that it points in the general position of the old one, then connect the new electrical wires. With the ignition on, rotate the dizzy housing so the green LED inside the body of the dizzy just illuminates (keeping in mind the position of the # 1 cylinder). That should allow the engine to fire the first time. My 123 is USB and not Bluetooth - but bet the way you upload the advance and vacuum curves is similar. You should start by searching for the Bosch dizzy curves here on the FAQ - believe they have been posted before - OR someone may have provided their 123 settings (degrees and RPM). Jim
  16. Would anyone local be willing to help me install a 123 Bluetooth distributor and new coil? I can't seem to find my old shop manual and would really like someone more competent than myself to guide me through this. My 1600-2 needs a few more miles on it before winter and its blocking my M5 from moving, so I'm kinda in a jam here. Of course, I will provide a great meal and booze.
  17. I heard back from the event organizers and they cancelled the Oktoberfest car show for 2019. Hi Gordon, Unfortunately we weren’t able to get enough commitments to hold the car show. Thank you for being willing to come, but we had to cancel the car show this year.
  18. There's a conflict with the autocross & Passport BMW's Oktoberfest that day. Since the chapter is formally committed to Passport for their event they can't do both. I wish we'd had more notice - we might have been able to work something out. Vienna doesn't just want classic German cars - they want/need a coordinator for each club. I'll be at work earlier Sat AM, & will get to Passport at ~1 PM. We have a detailing clinic on Sun in Sterling VA.
  19. Anyone have any additional info regarding the German car show at the Vienna Oktoberfest on Sat 5 OCT? The only response I'm getting from the organizers is to ask me a few weeks ago "Are you with a car club or just an individual with your own car." I replied that I'm an individual with my own car and they told me the following If you can get a group of at least 5 club members together that will commit to coming, and act as the point of contact, we’d be happy to have you. Since I only moved to the local area last year and I'm not in the BMW CCA, can I tag along with my tii with anyone going to this event? It sounds to me that the event organizers are biased toward club members but that's my opinion. https://www.viennaoktoberfest.org/ G-Man
  20. Hey everyone, I was contacted about an old truck I had listed for sale by the director for a small movie, he's looking for cars in the DC area to stage a 80's concert/tailgate scene. Trying to stay around $300 for the rental of vehicles. He said they would not be driven, just used in the parking lot. The truck is in Harrisonburg and won't work out for this, but I told him I'd share his info with this crowd as he also liked my 02. I didn't get an exact date, but he said it'd be early October for a timeframe. If you want to email [email protected] a photo of your car, or other older vehicles that might fit the scene maybe you can end up with cool story and get a couple of bucks for a nice DC dinner. 😃 I can't speak to any of his films, but after googling him, he looks like a real director at least so the odd of you ending up missing a kidney after the shoot are probably low. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2251093/#director thanks! dave
  21. Hey everyone - figured I'd let my Mid-Atlantic folks know that I'm selling my 76 Chamonix car. I'm in Richmond VA if you or someone you know is interested and in the area. Here's a link to the page in our classifieds. Regards, Joe
  22. Contact Chris at Stone Racing Co. - he's in Phila & is "stone02" here on the forum: https://www.bmw2002faq.com/profile/35384-stone02/ https://www.facebook.com/StoneRacingCo/
  23. Good evening, Just got into the game....any one know of a philadelphia area mechanic that is familiar with 02"s? Thanks! Matt
