Well gang it was exactly one year ago yesterday Jan 6th that we lost one of "our own". I don't know about the rest of you, but I miss Michel terribly. He definitely left a huge VOID in the '02 community and in the world of Bimmers in general. I meant to post this yesterday.

Continued Rest In Peace My Friend,

John

It also has to be the place all the missing socks go. You get reunited when you arrive there. After all, it wouldn't be heaven if you had cold feet now, would it?

John,

I never met Michel, but I did correspond with him a little, and always enjoyed seeing his contributions both in Roundel and on the various email digests we had running in the late '90s. And I bought my NOS E28 mudflaps from him after seeing yours.

Thanks for the memories.

Jake

Gateway Tech--he knew more interesting tidbits about 2002s...for example, the early USA 02's were built in batches on the assembly line, not onesies and twosies, and the sunroof cars were also built in batches rather than interspersed. Wish I had written down all the stuff he told me, but since we were about the same age, I figured he'd be around for awhile!

We miss ya...

Cheers

Mike

    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
