Forlorn '02


Recommended Posts

hi all,


just introducing myself. My name is Paul.


my friend's son just dragged home a R. U. F .F   ruff  2002. it was sitting outside for easily a decade. Did i mention it was rough? the father is, quote, "eternally grateful" to me for convincing his son to part it out. Romantic that I am, even I know when to cry uncle.


google search led me here, poked around, cool forum. I think you might the folks who would be interested in what this old girl has to offer before getting recycled into toasters.


1972, I think, round taillight version, seems complete. Didn't poke around too much, I was supposed to be working, but would pull back the tarp now and then. what a shame it degraded to this; I forgot how sweet these little cars are, don't see many anymore.


Going back tomorrow to finish the masonry work, will pull the tarp and take some pics with my phone. I don't know if i have to post x number of times to post in the for sale section. guess i'll find out soon enough. please bear with me as I don't move too quickly (slacker). I'm doing this as a favor to his dad, and also for the enthusiasts out there. As a collector myself, it makes me cringe to think about it getting scrapped without every usable part being removed.


thanks. have a nice night

    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
