Awesome Goodwood speed fest coverage on speedvision

The sleds are actually called "Bowdyne" sleds I believe; named after Geoff but spelled with a twist. Those sleds are fantastic and have dominated since their inception. Geoff Bodine fronted a large amount of $$ to the US Olympic Bobsled team in order to further the development of this sled. Now, whether or not he designed them who the hell knows.

A quick writeup in the latest Grassroots Motorsports indicated that there's not much to worry about regarding the Speedvision changeover. They still haven't even worked out the full NASCAR relationship, because NASCAR is much more widely seen than Speedvision. They're claiming that they will continue to run the obscure stuff we like so much. Frankly, Speedvision has been showing mostly infomercials and tired reruns lately, I don't think that the change will hurt it. Plus they just switched it from the 150-channel package to the 100-channel package on my Dish Network setup; which means I get the channel now, because I wasn't willing to pay for another package just for that one channel.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
