TURBOS at 2013 Octoberfest


Preyupy

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to decide if I am going to take my Turbo to Monterey for Octoberfest next August. I will be there for the previous 2 weekends for the Historic races with anywhere between 6-15 cars depending on what is accepted. It looks like we will be bringing the Group 5 CSL and my customer my wish to stick around for O'Fest, if so I was thinking I would bring the Turbo and maybe even the 1600/2002 for the track sessions and Solo II.

It would be great to get as many Turbos together as we can, I know there are a number of them in the SF area and a number on the west coast. I just need to start planning early because of trailer space coming down from Seattle.

I would be interested in joining in on the fun, but many of the pureists might take offense at my "tribute" showing up. ;-)

Show up with a plasti dipped tribute. :)

I was going to get in touch with Sean Casey & Carl Nelson figuring they both had customers that might be interested. I will talk to the guys in Portland and there are 2 more here in Seattle. It would be a lot of fun but the idea of schlepping more cars to Monterey in Aug already has my head spinning (last year we brought 17 total! And our trucks can only take 12 or 13 depending on what cars we bring)

In typical fashion, a recomendation would be to communicate with Casey Motorsports.

I really hope you bring your turbo to Monterey in 2013. I was really sad to see the lack of 02s to last year's Historic Festival at Laguna Seca.

We will be at Laguna Seca for the Pre Historic races Aug 8-11. And then the Monterey Motorsports Reunion Aug 15-18 O'Fest starts on Aug 19 so it looks like we will be there for the better part of 3 weeks. We still don't know what cars will be accepted for the 2 race weekends so I'm not sure how many cars we will have there or how many trips we will make from Seattle to get everything there and back.

We'll be out there both weeks to photograph the events and I'll hopefully have my 2002 ready for O'Fest.

It was great seeing a few CSLs and 2002s out this year. It'll be amazing to see even more running laps this year.

    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
