Remembering 02-02-02


Recommended Posts

How many on here were in Spartanburg, SC on 02-02-02? My '76 & I did just fine going down from PA in the dead of winter.

It's 02-20 today...the date just made me remember...well, sort of! :-)

Happy '02ing,


Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Nathan, Evan and I were there in Pikachu, smoking like a freight train. I never touched the wheel, the boys drove the whole trip.

Met many folks I still hold as good friends today.

John, come out and play with us again. Haven't really seen much of you recently. Do you still have your 2002s?

Was there too and met those wild and crazy guys from Alabama in their Malage 02s Remembering thinking it was really cool that Earl was the original owner of his 02, and a Lux at that Still good friends. Met Bill, Nathan and Evan and all of the NE caravan contingent in Durham and had the time of my life driving to Spartanburg in that caravan!

And later discovered that some of my now closest 02 friends were there also but unfortunately due to the numbers did not meet them then.

For a long time 02 guy at that point I was in 02 heaven!!! And continue to be!!!!

    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.

    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
