I just found out that Neal Gordon died late in December. Many of you know Neal from his posts on this and the other board as NBG and Neal Briggs. He made an incredibly brave and positive stand against awful forms of cancer over the last couple of years. Though I only saw him a handful of times, through our shared interests and affinities, I felt a kinship with him.

Neal advised me even before I bought my first '02, and has been liberal with opinions, parts and technical support since then. His website (link below) hosted a great 2002 registry which was a great introduction for me to our cars and people. The registry is gone (anyone know where?) but there are a couple more neat features on the site. Neal was also a teacher and a writer; in fact I found one of his stories online tonight which really resonates. Read it at http://www.intertext.com/v6n6/something.html .

Anyway, if you are inclined, there is a memorial fund to which I'll be contributing. If you are interested in donating, let me know and I'll send details. Peace to Neal; peace to you all.

I had been trying to contact him at his job for quite some time because I coud nto get thru at email. I now know the reason. I bought his project a few years back and kept in touch with him. I continued to go to his house and hang out and keep tabs on the Inka car he bought locally and refurbished. Really great guy. He was looking so forward in having RobT build him a Tii in CA and have it sent here to PA. I last saw him at Carlisle the year before last. He will be missed. Never did get to show him my latest project.

    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
