at our favorite health food restaurant (to get pastrami burgers, fries and of course a diet coke). On our way in a guy starts talking to me about the '02. He owned a '73 and a '74 (both Tii's) and wishes he had never parted with them. He told me about how he really liked the 165 hp engine as opposed to the standard 100hp engine (my job here is to listen, not correct). He talked for a while and I asked if he would like to look the car over and take it for a ride. He looked over the car and told a story or two, but declined a ride.

After talking, he said he had a set factory repair manuals that he would be happy to send to me if I gave him my address... how cool. I told him I would be willing to compensate him for the books, but he said no. He was just happy to see a young guy on the road enjoying an '02 (he meant my son, but, I'm taking it as a compliment anyhow).

The '02 is a fun car and is always interesting to see the soft spots people have for them...

A group of church people (can't remember which church now) were cruising my neighborhood one Saturday as I was out in the garage working on a car. My E-type was sitting there and this guy talked about the Jag more than church! He said he had one at one time but it was long gone, but also said he had a Bentley service manual left over. He brought it back about an hour later as a gift.

Very cool.

Here, even with the rondel staring at them in the face, the usual question is "what kind of car is that"? is it from the 50's?, looks like a car from Russia...sheesh

    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
