I am running 7mm heli-core wires from NGK. Obviously MSD offer their own. I am thinking of getting the Ireland Engineering set next time.

Possibly over thinking this. I've used a slew of wires over the last 15 years on the same ignition system: MSD6a, Pertronix, red coil, NGK  BP6ES. Currently using a set from Kingsbourne

i am dealing with some childhood anxiety after trying to put a set of plug wires in an old boat my dad had. Cutting them to length and terminating them still produces a nervous twitch. 

 

After looking into "make your own" sets it seems less intimidating.   I think I will go with a MSD set, since they all seem to be about the same price point.

I've used the Accel do-it-yourself 8mm kits for AMC V8's- you get enough parts for 2 sets, minus the distributor wire...

 

$60ish now, I suspect.

    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
