  1. What's new in this club
  2. Hi Matt! Nice to know of another NYC driver. I haven't had to work with a mechanic yet (it's my first season as well), but a good friend and fellow BMW owner recommended these guys for all kinds of small and bigger jobs: https://www.yelp.com/biz/g-and-s-truck-and-auto-repair-brooklyn I should add that they're more of a general repair shop rather than body and paint specialists. But I would trust any referrals or other shops they work with. See you around! Erik
  3. Hi guys, just got my first BMW '02 this weekend. It's a 1973 automatic and is extremely sound mechanically. The lone issue I do want to address is rust. Some areas are pretty light, but one spot low on the front skirt below the bumper may need to be cut out and replaced with new metal. I'm new to the Brooklyn area and new to '02s. Any recommendations for great repair shops in the area that won't break my bank? Not looking for a concours job, but really want to make sure I'm working with an honest repair shop that will address the issues and keep this manageable. Really appreciate any help this group can offer. Matt

  6. LOOKING FOR ALL BMW 2002’S. COME ONE, COME ALL, TO THE 2018 PITTSBURGH VINTAGE GRAND PRIX If you have a 2002 you won’t want to miss this party. The Allegheny Chapter has selected the iconic 2002 as the model of the year and will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of our beloved 2002 while hosting the “Marque of the Year” festivities and BMW CCA Oktoberfest, July 5th through July 15, 2018. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, in its 35th year, is a ten-day motorsport festival with the purpose to raise awareness and funds for the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School. Every year the PVGP selects a Marque and this year is ours again. The Allegheny Chapter of the BMW CCA has been a ground breaker in fund raising for these worthwhile charities and have donated over $250,000. This year our goal is to donate over a $100,000 and we hope you will help. Things get started Friday, July 5 and run through July 7 at Pittsburgh International Motorsports Complex where the Allegheny Chapter will host a Vintage 2002 Race, a National Points BMW CCA Club Race and a car corral all as part of the PVGP Historics at Pitt-Race. All racers will receive lunches, a welcome reception and dinners throughout the weekend. Spectators can reserve designated space in our corral and enjoy lunches in our tent while watching the races from Spectator Hill. On Monday July 8 a select number of historical BMW’s will be on display at the PVGP Shadyside Invitational Car Show. The car show is free and open to spectators and all are encouraged to attend. If you have a vintage BMW with historical significance and would like to be part of this exclusive car show please send a bio and pictures to bmw.event.coordinator@gmail.com by June 1, 2018. The Waterfront, outside of Pittsburgh host a traditional Car Cruise Tuesday night. With over 650 cars on display you can join them for a $5.00 donation. Things start to pick up steam on Wednesday throughout Downtown Pittsburgh where vintage and classic cars will parade through town and be on display during lunch. The BMW CCA Oktoberfest will also be hosting a Concours in Point State Park. That evening the Tune up Party @ Atria’s takes place on the Roberto Clemente Bridge and PNC Park. Hundreds of cars will be on display. The Allegheny Chapter and PVGP will have a designated area for all BMW’s to enjoy the revelries. The Allegheny Chapter and the BMW CCA Oktoberfest host a welcome reception at the Carnegie Science Center on the North Shore, Thursday night from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. River transportation will be provided from Station Square where the Oktoberfest Hotel is located. Friday, we have our Grand Tour of the Laurel Highlands with the designation, Frank Lloyd Wrights, Fallingwater. This 150-mile tour will take you up into the Allegheny Mountains with guided run groups leaving downtown Pittsburgh at various times in the morning and scheduled tours of this historic landmark that have been arranged with the fine people at Fallingwater (www.fallingwater.org). Lunch will be provided at a Historic Inn nearby. That evening all are invited to join our traditional parking lot party. Where you can relax, clean your car, meet new and old friends and enjoy the sights and sounds. All 2002 Racers have an opportunity to join the PVGP Vintage Grand Prix Races, Saturday and Sunday. Here you can go back in time and race on the City streets of Schenley Parks 2.3-mile, 23 turn road course. Curbs, street lights, manhole covers and haybales, what’s there not to like. Oh, did I say over 100,000 spectators. This is a once in a life time opportunity to race with all 2002 race cars other vintage racers. On Friday night, our “Forbes Avenue of Speed” Race Car Parade & Display in nearby Squirrel Hill is a great opportunity to meet the racers and see the cars up close. Vintage racers will parade through Squirrel Hill and park on Forbes Avenue for a car show. Our corral gets started early Saturday and Sunday morning on German Hill. With All 2002’s proudly displayed and eligible for a chance at the People’s Choice awards (Best Roundie, Square and Race Car). We are expecting over 500 cars and the PVGP Car Show Saturday boast over 2500 vintage, classics and Modern era cars. Our corral on German hill near turn 13 of the race course will include lunch and our famous Bier Garden. On Sunday the Allegheny Chapter is looking to break the Guinness World Record for a make (BMW) & model (2002) in a parade (around the Schenley Park Road course). We need over 200 “2002’s to break this record currently held by the BMW Isetta.

    Anyone on here on LI?

    I live in Manorville. Have a 76 driver that is currently in body shop for paint and mods. Will probably be at least 1-2 months before i get it back. Ira
  8. Hey thanks, I did call SCR and they are BUSY. Wouldn't even consider talking about taking in the car until the Fall. I went with a shop in NJ instead: http://tyspeed.com/
  9. Sports Car Restoration in Connecticut isn't far and is more of a one stop shop depending on what you are looking to do. Also Hampton Engines in West Hampton if you are looking for motor work.
  10. You may want to try the little garage in Huntington out on the Island depending on what you are getting done. No personal experience with them, but they have a good reputation and they always have 2002s parked at the shop. I'll be using them once I get deeper into my project.
  11. Looking for more of an '02 specialist shop but thank you
  12. Howdy NY'ers, thought I'd dust off some of the cobwebs in this section and see if anyone in the NYC area could recommend a good shop to work on '02s? I'm receiving my first '02 soon and would like to have the car shipped straight to a good shop, thanks - Rich

    Anybody in Upstate NY

    Sorry about the late reply, but.. I'm in the Western New York area! I actually live in Orchard Park (right near the Bills stadium). Coincidentally, I was also very new to the '02 scene in august of 2015, as I purchased my '72 Malaga 2002 in June of 2015. In fact, I'm kind of kicking myself now for not taking more time to explore the "Regional Groups" section of the forum, as I probably would have noticed this post a lot sooner. Do you still have your '02, and if so, would you be interested in meeting up sometime? I'm a die-hard car enthusiast who is always looking for other enthusiasts to discuss any and all things automotive. Speaking of which, if you're not already aware, some people have organized a local "Cars & Coffee" gathering for the Buffalo area that is held on the third Sunday of every month (April through October) at the Eastern Hills Mall parking lot, from about 8 or 9AM to about noon. It actually yields a surprisingly large turnout, with an excellent variety that generally has something for everyone. It is free, and I have had a blast every time i have attended so far. They have a Facebook page with all the information on it, but they are planning on holding the first meet of the year this coming Sunday if you are interested. As long as the weather cooperates, I plan to be there with my '02.
  14. Hi, recently bought my first 2002 and I'm looking for shop recommendations in the area. I can handle most issues with these cars myself but looking for a shop to handle some more restoration-related issues (mounting E30 seats, heater box rebuild, weather stripping etc)

    Vintage 2015 in N.C.

    Anyone from NY going to the Vintage this year?
  25. I would just invest in a storage place and do work there or just take it to a shop to get the work done. The amount of money you'll put in storage can probably get it running. Welcome to NYC.
