Initial Announcement-- Swap & Show-2014, 3 May At Brisbane Marina


Recommended Posts

Initial posting-- Swap & Show 2014 will be on 3 May at the Brisbane Marina (as recent years).  For anyone concerned, this is BEFORE Bimmerfest at the Rose Bowl.


Later posting: We are well on our way to the event, now less than 6 weeks away.  We encourage you to preregistrer since it saves you time and money and also gives us a better idea about logistics.  In addition, some have asked about visiting without showing or swapping.  Yes, as before anyone is welcome to visit at no charge (without registering to show or swap), and there is plenty of free parking.  But we encourage anyone with a BMW of our vintage to display your car, no matter if it is a rust bucket or a beautiful restoration or any daily driver in between. To preregister on MotorsportsREG go to [http://www.motorsportreg.com/index.cfm/event/event.advert/uidEvent/360477F3-AC31-A0F7-214243BFF3796B62#.Uuik9XmttFQ].

    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
