Freude Am Fahren - Short Story

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow 02 lovers, I thought I'd share part of my story of BMW's and 2002's. Hopefully you like the story!


"Ever since I was a young kid, I was surrounded by something that I didn’t even think about. My rides to intramurals in elementary school, being watched by my dad at his shop for the afternoon, riding in the back seat to church, or trips to the public library– it all happened in the back seat of a BMW. Whether it be the rear seat of a 325iX, or the cushy highline interior of an M6, I grew up in the interior of a BMW. I rode around in a bunch of 02′s and went skiing once in our Sahara Beige 2002tii. Ok, when I was younger, it was simply known as “the beige car.” But it was fun to ride in, especially when my dad would pick up speed on the down hill sweeper on my way to elementary school. Oh yeah, it was just as exciting when we did donuts in the icy street in front of our house. At a young age, these things were the best. Kind of like when me or one of my brothers would get to steer the car coming down the driveway. Maybe that’s how I got started in this whole BMW community. I don’t think I would have been described as a car lover back then– just a kid that grew up with a lot of cars in the family...."

    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
