51 years with Wolfgang (the car, not the composer)

Recommended Posts

Fifty one years ago yesterday I took delivery on Wolfgang, my '69.  The 40th "second series" '69 off the assembly line--that is with a short neck differential, three speed heater blower, later style trunk lid torsion bars etc.  But still with the 6 bolt crankshaft and coil spring pressure plate (try finding those!.)  


And...back in my garage after a year in the Passion exhibit at the BMW CCA Foundation Museum in South Carolina.  Still puts a big grin on my face when I get behind the wheel...

A Ricoh 500 view finder (not SLR) 35mm camera.  Still have it too!




Mike, I wouldn't be at all surprised if you said you still had the shoes you were wearing that day! 😉 


Congrats to you, but even moreso to Wolfgang, for having such a caring - and giving - owner.
