Depends on the lighting of course, but a freshly-waxed colorado car almost glows at times. Just waxed mine this week -- sadly, the painter did a great job of matching the old paint when he sprayed the lower portion (beltline down) a year ago. Only problem? The paint hadn't been polished out recently, so when I get a good shine on the top now, it's a different hue than the bottom! Sigh...

It took a long time for us to research and get it correctly formulated. The main probelm with colorado is that most of the cars are so faded that a good example is hard to find. Colorado is a very strange color, it actually does take on different hues depending on the lighting. Enjoy.

Original paint on the top, PO repaint on the side, My repaint of the rockers, and the failed clearcoat on the wing and hood.

    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
