Took a day trip to Austin from Fort Worth.

Saw Mike Self and his Sahara 02 he drove from Ohio.

Saw Bob Murphy and his tii. Nice Alpina injection!

Saw several cars owned by Terry Sayther, Austin shop owner and racer.

He had a Bauer 02 he converted to a E30 M3 motor. His yellow 02 club racer, he aslo had an E30 M3 Touring, nice. And a few others.

Saw Matt's Alpina racer, a 1600 cabriolet, a nice Verone, and a nice '75 3.0 CSL.

Paul from Dallas had is Polaris '73tii there in al its beauty.

Mike also from Dallas had a nice square tail euro 2002tii Lux. I really like the square taillight, small bumper look. Interestingly, it's front seatbelts are rigged differently than the US model. The inertia reel is tucked beside the rear seat, where the rear seatbelt reel is. A better idea I think, since its so easy to trip on the reel when exiting the rear seat (at least its easy fro my kids to trip on it).

There was also a nice Verona square taillight converted to small bumpers. And a dark blue injected 02 that was super clean.

The swap meet in the hotel parking lot was disappointing. Only 1 person with stuff! However, I took it as a sign that he had mostly 2002 stuff and picked up a few items.

I have been in "wagon envy" ever since I saw a Datsun 510 wagon. I saw a couple of E30 tourings in Canada. Now there is the E46s w/ all wheel drive technology.

I look and drive and collect brochures, but I refuse to give up my E30 M3.

    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
