Perfect day, just 4 cars, it was a blast! First time

I've driven Bacchus2 with all the "mods", the seats

really helped keeping my ass from sliding, literally.

Starting with Quien Sabe Rd, 5 miles of

unmolested road, NO traffic, hit Cienega Rd and

stopped at Pietra Santa Winery, unexpectably the

owner gave us a personal tour! and proceeded to

treat us to a small sample of his best unrealeased

wine, just a sip - it helps to have connections (we

are friends and trade wine for bodywork). Stopped

in San Juan Bautista to have lunch and check out

the Britt cars, there most have been at least 200

vintage cars! The grand finale, proved to be just

that, a drive up to Freemont Peak (3600 ft -

considering SJB is at 100), again, nobody around,

tight turns, twisty road, great views, perfect for a

2002. No action shots here, too busy. Felt the 205

yokos grabbing, the 3.90 squealing, the 38/38

torque pulling me out of the turns, total control,

forgot the thick sway bars that I found, what's

sway? Great drive...

I planned on coming up. I'd talked with David on Saturday but two blocks from my house the fuel pump went south. Had to settle for wrenching yesterday instead, but I look forward to the next time.

    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
