My view today here at Mid-America in Eureka Springs, Arkansas 

Glass man showed up and installed front and rear with no problems in and out in two hours...couple more days and I’ll be at the finish line.

Couple days late to post but the Touring arrived after its 2 month journey from Italy.

Can you mention who did the upholstery work? Looks great!



Yeah for sure, sorry I haven't been on here in a bit.  


Branch Brook Auto Top in Newark, NJ.  His name is Charlie, older guy who's been doing it since he was a teenager.  He had everything from B5 S4 Avants to 70's Coupe DeVille's in there.  He actually had two 2002's he was doing before mine.  Let him know Matt with the blue 2002 referred ya!

I drove Dolores, the ‘69, about 100 miles zipping around the LA area yesterday.


Dropped off some belt trim I just got deanodized to be polished in Long Beach. Found out Coupe King uses the same vendor default_smile.png&key=cd4f612096ed350b336fbb98aa3de60a9943f48d43549085d4816e0dd29694e1


Stopped at Ken Blasko’s while I was down there for some advice and learned something new as always.


Swung by Venice and test drove a Verona ‘75 survivor I’m considering.


Drove back up into the valley and finished up with a dusk driving lesson with my wife as she gets used 2002s.


A perfect summer Friday.

I brought home a new playmate for the bmw



So needs to be in OT...


But last year we got a very low mileage '14 STI for my wife.  She loves it.  It's nice they're making it in Laguna Seca Blue, too!

Attended the DeutscheMarques car show at Gilmore Car Museum with my Touring and my 2002.

The 2002 won best 70's BMW, big surprise since their was a couple of very well done 2002 I would have picked over mine.

Too busy for pictures, my Son took this one .


This BMW 2002 won best of show, I didn't talk to owner. Was well deserved beautiful car.




Great place for a car show.

The dash clock in Barney’s Inka Tii wasn’t working so I volunteered to fix it. I took it apart, resoldered the fusable link, cleaned it, put a few drops of clock oil on the pivot points, and cleaned the contact points.  Put it back in the housing and jumpered it to the battery in my ‘71.... “Clunk..tick, tick, tick, tick, tick” ...such a satisfying sound. ?




I’ll let it run tonight and see how well it keeps time, then button it back up for installation.

Fabricated two NLA spark plug wire holder thingies that attach to the valve cover.


Good work.  I had a few original pieces and copied them as best I could.  They also had a thin piece of rubber inside to buffer wires against the metal.  I added them to my "to be plated" pile.
