Motorethos: A New Endeavor


Recommended Posts

Hi 02 Community,


It's been a number of years since my last post on this forum. I used to own a 1972 BMW 2002 Euro tii which I sold last year. I was out of the car culture for a bit but I hope this new endeavor will be a warm welcome back.


My friend and I have started a car blog appropriately named MotorEthos.

Our goal is to discover the ethos that drives the lifestyle of car enthusiasts and to share their stories with our audience. We are just getting off the ground. Last weekend we headed out to the Bay Area 02 Swap & Show to check out the scene.




As we continue along this path we hope to bring you personal and touching stories of owners, mechanics, events and more.


Thanks to the '02 community for 1) being a great group of people and 2) putting on these wonderful events.





P.S. The new caretaker of my old car brought her out to the show. She looks great, though now fitted with a new front plate!

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
