Little Introduction To The Local Group For Me.


Recommended Posts

Well I'm a new comer to the 2002 world and the world of cars actually. Got my 76 about a month and a half ago as a little project. A running one that is. I got it off a mechanic in Seattle and have been cruising up and down the road my house is located at because its not registered yet hahah. I hope to get it some shiny new plates and tabs before my birthday drivers license test in November. It is a Fjord Blue 02. Needs new paint rather badly. But it is a great running and driving first car so what ever I suppose. Maybe my senior project should be a exterior restoration? Not sure what my plans are with the little 2002 but I will have pictures here on this tread tomorrow morning. Just thought I would let all of the fellow 2002 enthusiasts know that one is still alive and kicking! (And I did make a "hello" on the main thread a while back this summer but I don't think anyone in The northwest section knows that the car is located here so just thought I would say hi!)

Hope to see some of the local 02'ers around some time!

Welcome to the world of the 2002.  I too have a '76, and I live in Ballard.  Send me a pm with your location, if you want, and we can kick tires.


I always do it right the second time.

I may have to come kick some tires too. :P Welcome welcome! An 02's a good car for your first. They tell you when you push em too hard, but it's darn fun to be on the edge of that limit. Also, not many cars you can have a load of fun in then look down and see you're barely over the speed limit  :lol:

    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
