Reminder: Fourth Annual BMW Vintage at Saratoga


Please let me know If anyone is interested in joining me in the drive up to Saratoga Springs.  I'll be leaving from Orange County NY on Sun, Oct 13, taking Route 84 East to the Thruway North.  

My email is bob9091@optonline.net


I plan on stopping around 7am at the Plattekill Gas / Travel Plaza on the NYS Thruway Northbound, at mile marker 85, between exits 17 and 18.  Maybe a few of you venturous souls from NY/NJ/CT/PA will join me.  Oughta be a fun day, weather-permitting, of course.

I'll be there on Sunday - but heading upstate tomorrow. My dad and I are heading south from my parents house with the '74 tii, '97 M3, '99 M Roadster.... Should be a good day.


Rocan - if you are looking for a machine shop for that bottom end. I can get you a local recommendation. The mechanic I found on Atlantic Ave with the '74 stashed in the back of his shop is just about done getting the motor rebuilt. I believe he uses a machine shop in Queens that apparently does good work.

    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
