High Sierra '02 Fest 2016-Sept 9-11, 2016

Recommended Posts



SEPTEMBER 9-11, 2016

You are cordially invited to bring your vintage BMW 1600 or 2002 and join us for the second annual High Sierra ’02 Fest to be held again in the beautiful Carson Valley, at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.  We will begin with a meet and greet on the evening of Friday September 9th, in Minden, Nevada.  On Saturday morning we will meet up for a group drive that will take us up into some great driving roads in the nearby mountains.  In the afternoon we will gather at historic Mormon Station State Park, in the town of Genoa, for a BBQ, social, car time, and a tech session presented by Jack Fahuna.  On Sunday morning an optional drive will take place for those who are interested, with a breakfast stop and opportunities to peel off and head home, along the route.  Lodging is available in Minden at the Carson Valley Inn, Holiday Inn Express or several smaller establishments in the Carson Valley or in Carson City, 20 miles to the north. The event is free, and T-shirts (Beefy-T with a nice graphic and no advertising) will be available for $20, by pre-order only.  Space is limited, because of the size of our venue, so please contact Ed Blake at adirtnerd@frontier.com to confirm your attendance, for more information, or if you would like to reserve a T-shirt.  Requests for T-shirts need to be received by August 1, to allow time for delivery.

I hope that you'll be able to join us in September.  Everyone who attended last year said that they had a great time, and we have a new and really nice venue for this year, where we'll be parking our cars on a nice grass area at a state park in Genoa, so should be fun.  If it looks like you're going to be able to make it, please let me know, and I'll make sure that you get a detailed event schedule.  Also, if you're interested in a T-shirt please let me know by August 1st.

Take care,

    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
