Event Title: Lunch with the Hack Mechanic
Event Author: Ian
Event Date: 07/09/2016 12:00 AM

Join the Genesee Valley Chapter of the BMW CCA on July 9th for a catered lunch and a talk featuring Rob Siegel, automotive journalist, rescuer of rusty relics, diviner of dead bimmers, and automotive raconteur. Rob has been buying and repairing BMWs for the past 34 years, and his exploits have filled columns in the Roundel, the magazine of the BMW Car Club, his first book, “Memoirs of a Hack Mechanic”, and an upcoming second book, “The Hack Mechanic Guide to European Automotive Electrical Systems”.  Rob is a gifted story teller who blends equal parts humor with practical advice to discuss the adventures of owning, repairing and driving both old and new BMWs, with the odd Porsche and British cars thrown into the mix.

This event will be held from 12-3 at Berg Racing, 1660 Boulter Industrial Parkway, Webster NY 14580.  Come for lunch from 12-1 catered by Daves’ Sidewalk Café, and tour the Berg Racing facilities.  Berg Racing competes in the professional Pirelli World Challenge series, and has a complete race shop, providing everything from race set up to fabrication.   Rob Siegel will talk from 1-3, and will have his books available for purchase and signing.

Admission to lunch and the talk is free for BMW Club members who pre-register on Motorsportreg.com , and is $20 for non-members payable at the door.  Alternatively, non-members can join the BMNW CCA for $48 on-site, and get free admission along with discounts on future autocross, track days, and social events.

    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
