NT49MD-2016— Not the 49 Mile Drive , Saturday 10 December, 2016




Not the 49 Mile Drive, the BayArea 02 annual rally, appears in San Francisco again on December 10 (2nd Saturday in December).  Meet at OceanBeach between 9 and 9:30 AM across The Great Highway from Beach Chalet on the West end of Golden GatePark (just like previous years).  Fulton St.is the cross street and the entrance to the OceanBeach parking lot.  Following our driver's meeting, we plan to have all cars away by 10:00 AM.  After navigating roads throughout San Francisco we will gather again for lunch at a restaurant and review the photos in the handout that each navigator numbered during the rally in the order observed.


San Francisco native Beck Diefenbach is our rallymeister again this year.  He delights in finding the hidden treasures and beautiful views that reward us for living in the Bay Area, and the unique and interesting paths to get there.


Join us for the fun rally, see your friends, learn and enjoy some of San Francisco’s road history and share some BMW tales.  We recommend driving with a navigator, so the driver can drive and the crew can give turn instructions and watch for the rally images to number them in viewing order. Solo drivers are also welcome, although there could be a navigator or two available before drivers get underway. If your 02 is under the weather, drive your other BMW on this rally. Kids are welcome to ride along and share lunch!


Watch FAQ’s BayArea 02 Forum for the latest details [http://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/forum/30-bayarea02/ ] but be sure to circle 10 December on your calendar for the NT49MD-2016 rally!

    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
