A guy down the street from me has an amazon one

and it is just a smidge bluer than my Agave

green(i.e. If you took agave and added a touch of

blue). As a matter of fact I thought they were the

same color until we put them side by side. Why

BMW used such slight variations in colors, I'll never

know.

Thank you for the color chart. I have been looking for a decent

depiction of Florida, and that chip looks the best. Now all I need

to do is see it on a car.

Is there some difference in the top/bottom parts of the chips? I can *see* a difference, I am just wondering if it is some difference in paint types?

I like Bristol and Granada. Any ideas which years/models had these colors? I think my little 02 book (Taylor and MacCartney) has something on this (or maybe the 02 Resto Guide), but both are sitting next to my bed.

My son's '69 (our next project) is Manila and its the only one I've seen. The outside has been sealed in white primer/sealer, but the rest is still Manila. Its one of those "old car" colors. 8-)

    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
