A "schnitzer" 1602 Makes Its Return To The Track

Recommended Posts

I figure a few of you may be interested in seeing this car. Well, back in March I was given the opportunity to drive the 1602 at Road Atlanta by Jeff, the owner of German Autowerks here in Atlanta. Jeff was generous (and crazy) enough to let my inexperienced 16 year old self to take his toy out for an HPDE. Luckily I was able to keep it out of the many walls and actually get solo'd for my last run of the weekend. Unfortunately I didn't notice the oil pressure dummy light until a lap or two after it started flickering. The problem ended up being loose oil pump bolts which allowed a little bit of oil to continue circulating, so no damage was done to the motor.

By the way, I get a clear track at 3:25 if you'd rather not watch all the Miatas.

Here are a few pictures from the weekend as well. Jeff is also bringing it up to Vintage this coming weekend.





It also has new shoes and a livery now.

    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
