The 2016 Fall RGB Ridge Runner Drive/GTG


Recommended Posts

It's coming up very soon, our annual get-together at Sabbathsong Farm in the picturesque countryside of northern Kentucky. Each Fall, we convene for tire-kicking, socializing, great food/drink, beautiful scenery, bonfires, English Mastiffs, and an unforgettable driving experience led by our renowned 02 expert, Jason Gipson. We welcome other 2002 owners (and owners of other BMWs...) to come join us over the September 23rd-25th weekend. Details can be found on our RGB Facebook page. We stay two nights at the Sabbathsong Farm B&B with wonderful food provided by Carolyn Boatman. Typically, we end up at Blue Licks State Park for lunch midway through our Saturday drive for a smorgasbord of country cuisine. The roads in this area were mostly laid out before the automobile was commonplace. That means there are tight curves, sudden dips, hill hops, off-camber sweeping turns, etc. We have to watch out for dogs, turtles and snakes in the road, plus the occasional tractor or combine. (part of the fun)


We are very lucky to have this splendid event ------ so we'd like to share it with y'all.

    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
