On the way to work today (in the tii/A4) I cruised down the street with a pastleblau 75 or 76, much the one I owned from 1983-85. Made me realize I've put two of these beasts down myself (one my fault, one the other driver's fault). The pastleblau and Jadegrun 74 2002.

What's the record out there?

ever drive a 2002 at redline until the enevitable? I did, took about 55 minutes. Thought everything was fine until I started it the next morning ouch!

Wreck was the result of someone turning left across my path at an intersection, panicing and hitting the brakes so the car stopped right into my path. Ouch!

...brand new '87 325is on a test drive. The salesman was with me. It wasn't a total loss, but my ego sure was.

$3,000 in repairs. My insurance carrier cancelled me, even though I was never issued a ticket.

I would love to have saved them, but they were mostly bondo already when I got them.

I do feel really bad about the 75 Verona, especially since it was my first car.

But all of those are in my current project, a least a piece from each one, with spares.

I sure have pushed some of them really really hard though! They are just too familiar to me, I always know exactly what they will do!

I made a salesman (it was his first day on the job) scream like a 7 year old that just won a pony at the county fair in a new e30 m3 but never traded paint....Marty....

    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
