well all, the engine installation is complete and the car is running very well and i have 22 of my first 50 on the odometer. ( ran out of time/energy/day). Discovered that my beautiful aluminum air filter housing top has wrong inner dimensions for a perfect filter fit( that did not stop POs from using it), but i had my fiberglass top which is perfect dimensions, so that is what i am using now until i have a machine shop reconfigure the inner spaceof the aluminum top. I took a bunch of under side pics while on the lift for reference info for 5 speed stuff, etc... what ever comes up on the Board in the future. Put the new jack fahuna insulation pieces on the hood underside after thorough cleaning with goo-gone( secret: have the hood off the car so the stuff can just soak on the glue for a day or 2 ). so now, i get to drive the car like grandma some more!! cannot exceed rpm marks during break in... have to change entire driving style and pay close attention. no more downshifting and matching revs.... not during break-in. constant variation of rpm level. i just stay in the right lane with a close eye on the rear view mirror. Here are some pics: first the finished engine: standard.jpg then from another angle: standard.jpg here is under side of engine note painted stahl headers which will last for 10 miles or so., lol: standard.jpg the insulation went on nicely and looks good and is effective:standard.jpg and finally, the exhausted owner who still has a bunch of stuff to do : standard.jpg oh ya : fresh painted calpiers and drums: standard.jpg drums ;standard.jpg

    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
