Yeah...it's pretty much the seminal 2002 article of all time. A true classic.

...and I was going to poke at you for 'not searching',

but it's been a long time since it's popped up...

and it seems like most of us here are new again, anyway.

 

I know I'm trying to cultivate 'beginner's mind'...

Could be my senior senility lol. Thanks for cutting me some slack. I love how the reviewer is looking for other cars to race. Porsches, Mustangs, GTOs and Healeys he won't even shift quickly. Lol. MGBs hide in the garage when you see a BMW coming. Lol great stuff. I also love how the ONLY thing he hates is the Blaupunkt. He says yank it and shove a AC Delco in there lol.

David Davis was invited to be the guest speaker at the 2002 Oktoberfest in Keystone, CO. It was a pretty emotional speech for a lot of us in the audience.

Way back in late 1978 I walked into the BMW dealer in either San Jose or Santa Clara, CA.  There was a big pile of copies of this article stacked on a table.  The sales fellow said, "help yourself" so I grabbed a few copies ...... still got 'em.

 

Cheers,

I read Mr. Davis' review a long time ago  - then I grabbed a copy when I later saw it online as a photo image, after I got my own 02.

 

But I felt I just had to have a  REAL version though, not a picture, so I retyped the whole thing for myself...

 

Nice C&D host a copy now.

Was at that event (as was Delia Wolfe, Dave & Ginger Hoovler and a bunch of other 02ers) and I had Davis autograph my copy of the BMW (Hoffman Motors, actually) reprint of the article, which was given out at dealerships for several years after it was published.   That was the Ofest, incidentally where 104 2002s showed up, and our group picture way up Loveland Pass was the cover on the Roundel issue that covered the event.
