I was driving my 75 Malaga(well kinda mostly) when I picked her up from school. "Dad, did you drive this just to embarass me?" "well, of course, I did, honey." 6 minutes later at about 65 mph BOOOOM!! blapblapbblap blap.... We pulled over and as I got the spare out remembered I had left it in the garage. Cell phone on my desk and about a mile from the closest exit. Mortified 14 year old walking beside me on the hiway, 02 flashers blinking away. The knowledge that my 14 year old high school cheerleader daughter was embarassed but would rather walk with dad than sit in the car and wait for mom was priceless. Especially when she stepped on the petrified raccon carcass.

I used to pick up my kids from school in a beater honda, they literally ducked inside the car until no one could see them. I think they got traumatized for life with old cars, now nobody shares my passion!

run flat tires, cell phones and hungry buzzards that would eat the roadkill before they petrified! Should also teach her that once she starts driving to always check her spare tire--and know how to change it.

Good story.

    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
