Not The 49 Mile Drive-2013, 14 December


layers

Recommended Posts

Coming up- Not the 49 Mile Drive!  Join BayArea 02 on December 14 (2rd Saturday in December) as we rally around San Francisco in our annual Not the 49 Mile Drive.  We will meet at Ocean Beach as we have for a number of years (across The Great Highway from Beach Chalet on the West end of Golden Gate Park; Fulton St. is the cross street and the entrance to the Ocean Beach parking lot) between 9 and 9:30 AM.  Following our driver's (and navigator’s) meeting, we hope to have all cars away by 10:00 AM.  After a couple of hours driving the major, minor and surprising roads of San Francisco we will meet again at a restaurant for lunch and to review the photos that each car has numbered in the order observed during the rally.

 

San Francisco native Beck Diefenbach is orchestrating our rally again this year, exploring the roads that make San Francisco famous and helping us find the hidden treasures and postcard views that make us delighted to live in the Bay Area.  We are also considering lunch options, possibly again on Treasure Island or maybe another delectable restaurant.

 

Join us for the fun “gimmick” rally, see your friends, learn and enjoy some of San Francisco’s road history and share some BMW tales.  Although you can drive solo, we recommend bringing a navigator (in Wells Fargo jargon, someone to ride “shotgun”).  During the rally your navigator can number the photos we provide in the order you see them on the route.  Kids are welcome to ride along and share lunch!

I will be there with my 3 boys. I have a buddy with an Opel GT that will be coming along with his son as well. This is such a great activity with so many great people!

Excellent! An Opel GT?? How freaking awesome. Very excited.

    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
