Started out in Santa Cruz with 4 round lights going

up highway 1, stopping out at this lighthouse and

having brunch in Half Moon Bay. Had to take my

son to SF so we decided to leave the others and

take I-280. The entrance ramp is a long sweeping

curve and the freeway is 4 or 5 lanes going up a

slight grade, so the cars at that point are starting to

slow down from the normal 80mph. I know this

going into the turn and decided to open up the

Alpina to show some people on the highway what

torque is. I did noticed a midsize sedan behind

me on the ramp. I get on it and I am busy shifting

and moving towards the fast lane, I am already on

5th gear and accelerating, one lane to go, but the

car that was behind me on the ramp reappeared

on the fast lane behind me, so out of courtesy

(thinking this guy must really be in a hurry) let him

pass before I switched lane. As soon as he went

by my son goes: " Dad that's an Aston Martin!" The

hunt was on! He is weaving in and out of traffic

and we are right behind him, I figured he has to

have a good radar detector, this went on for 5

minutes. What a car! The Anston Martin of course!

I know, I know, I shouldn't do this, but it really felt

safe! I need a driving school bad, I know, I know, I

am an idiot for doing this!

    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
