If any of you ever get a chance, go drive in hollister with this man. I didnt say anything yesterday but after we slowed down through some of the back roads, my legs were trembling. Michael knew his roads and drove like a bat out of hell... And I have never had so much fun driving my little old george. Thanks again, Shad, Justin, and shawn.-David

You missed the last leg up to Freemont peak, we stopped and everybody's comments were: "I didn't know a 2002 could handle like that", in reference to your 02, completely stock and unmolested, a tribute to a great car. Life is too short not to drive these cars the way were meant to.

Fortunately I made it home with just two steel belts showing on my front tires...boy, those avs intermediates disintegrated something fierce that day...

Down but never out, the car's at the shop as I write getting new shoes on all corners (I went with Potenza re950's in 195/60/14 since the wet season is coming...sorry Mike, but those 205's gave me a work out coming down the hill...I like a bit more 'nimble' in the feel... :) )

Many thanks to all, and Shawn and I are looking forward to the next one...

Unfortunately i was unable to post yesterday because I was laying in bed with a sore back. I got home, 260 miles, still had some gas left so I decided to go up to rohnert park to get gas instead of around my house. The drive up was fine, but i noticed the south bound lanes were EXTREEMLY clogged up, stop and go. Mostly stopped. I forgot about this, and got on the freeway going south instead of the back roads....and within about 3 miles everybody was stopped ------ EXCEPT THE DITZ BEHIND ME. WHAM!

For those of you who dont know me, I wasnt in a 2002, it was a Saturn. Pushed me into a civic in front of me, and them into the next car. It was a pretty good hit!

Blue Audi with a big ol blue tandem on top.

Stupid me, I didn't take Stoney Point down to 116. How many years did we have the GGC autocrosses in SantaRosa? You'd think I would have learned.

Stuck in all the TRAFFIC. We didn't really mind as we had just picked up iced coffees and were driving automatics. We were going so slow I could have ran over and offered you a cold one.

then the hwy turns left and dips down, then comes back up like a little valley. It was just at the very start of coming back up where it happened.I dont doubt that you saw us, and ya the traffic was terrible but we were going at a good clip before everybody stopped, except the Volvo wagon behind me.

    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
