I was in Mill Valley, CA last Friday and passed a beautiful early car going the opposite way on Miller Ave near the Tamalpais High School.  It was either Sahara or Nevada with a Tobacco interior, looked super clean.  Anyone here?  Got home on Sunday night, watched the latest episode of American Gigolo on Showtime, a Malaga Square-tail 2002 car was featured the opening scene and in the kidnapping scene.  Nice 2002 soup-dish alloy wheels.  Anyone here own this one?

Bit of a coincidence as my Sahara '73 was sold new by Mill Valley Imports to an AF officer, who brought it back east when he was transferred to Wright-Patterson AFB in Ohio.  That's where I acquired it in 1978.  

 

Thanks to one of the nice folks here on the FAQ, I now have a chrome Mill Valley Imports license plate frame that would have been on the car when new.  

 

Is that dealership still in business?

    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
