Not the

49-Mile Drive

2022 on 10 December

 

Well, in spite of the heavy rain we had about 7 cars drive the rally route.  No one got stuck (or lost their brakes) on steep, wet hills!  I posted the photo key NT49MD-22 Photo Key explained_221201.docNT49MD-22 Photo Key explained_221201.docso if anyone wants to try the route on a different day you can check your results.  All drivers who completed the route got a T-shirt (Agave-colored with this year's graphic).  Since the food trucks aborted their visit to the Presidio and Tunnel-Tops Park today, no end-of-route lunch was available in any case.🤕

 

If anyone has photos of NT49MD-22,please post at [NT49MD-22 photos]!

======================================================

TOMORROW!

Please download the route instructions from the discussion page; they're now posted there (see gray buttons near "Event Title" near page top).

UPDATE on 1 December 2022:

I just added the Driver’s Protocol and Announcements for all to read (see discussion topic using the link near the bottom of this page where the Word file is posted to download).  The route is verified (I corrected just one glitch) and the photos to align in order of view are in place at the end of the route instructions (and ready to post for your download on 9 December).

======================================================

 

 

UPDATE: We will start the rally at our old location, the West (beach) side of Great Highway across from Beach Chalet in Golden Gate Park.  Meet by 9:30 AM so all cars can be off before 10:00 AM.  We’re planning for the possibility of finishing near an agglomeration of food trucks where you can buy outdoor nourishment. In any case we still encourage social distancing, masking and other protocol to make sure our rally can NOT become a spreader event (Covid-19 or the flu or even RSV if you have your family lookouts aboard).

 

We will also have T-shirts.

 

Please read and download the "Welcome to NT49MD-22 drivers protocol & announcements" which I will upload soon. 

I will run the rally within a few days to verify the route and look for more photos.  I will also post the route instructions before 9 December so you can download them to print out (note, I'm not sure how good the resolution of the photos will be on a phone so I recommend a printed version).  Saves my printer a little bit and also decreases direct personal contact (hey, I know all of you are nice people).

 

Watch for more details, especially the route instructions!

===========================================================================

Hey, December 10 is coming up fast— that means start to get ready for Not the

49-Mile Drive

on 10 December!


Yes, we’re planning another Not the

49-Mile Drive rally around San Francisco.  At this point Rallymeister Pete Petras is checking out his route plans so we do not yet have gathering details in place.  Also, we will NOT meet for lunch in a restaurant, same as last year.  But we’re looking at the possibility of finishing near an agglomeration of food trucks where you can buy outdoor nourishment.  With the route plan still emerging we can not yet definitively tell you where to meet but watch this space as details emerge.

In any case we plan to still encourage social distancing, masking and other protocol to make sure our rally can NOT become a spreader event (Covid-19 or the flu).


Stay tuned!

Hey, can everyone see the grey button to download the Driver's Protocol and Announcements?  If you did not notice, this button is close to the page top next to "Event Title:".  You probably need to sign-in to see this gray button.

Hi Steve--

 

I'm sorry you can't make NT49MD this year.  I actually expect a low turnout this time due to the rain but we'll never know until tomorrow morning.  I still printed 25 copies of the route instructions although I expect about 15 or 20 cars.  And T-shirts will be FREE for drivers who complete the rally tomorrow!  The Agave-colored shirt is right in tune with our holiday season.

 

I'll setup a photo page in BayArea02 images for posting, making it easy to collect all photos together.  Go to [Image page for NT49MD-22].

So the heaviest rain is forecast to come down between 9:00 and noon tomorrow (a category 2 atmospheric river!). Not sure about the prudence of driving 50 year old cars in that... And I was so looking forward to joining for the first time this year.

Not sure if there's a possibility of pushing it to the afternoon. I'll recheck to see if there's an update in the morning.

Hi all - sorry I cannot make it.  I decided to pull my transmission out for that leaky rear selector seal - its on a business trip to Metric Mechanic!  Watch out for Santacon stragglers too - they may be a bit groggy from all the celebrations today.  

Oh and I better finish the wiper blade restoration too!   

 

Cheers, looking forward to the pics.

Hi Reys02--

My AAA-Triptik says the route is 20.7 miles, but I made a slight change after I printed the Triptik to drive my DRAFT route.  While I generally like Google Maps to see a route, the turn limit on Google makes me change to Triptik for a complete route.

 

Did you download the final route with photos plus the photo key to share when your relatives visit and want to "see" San Francisco?

 

I see you added some photos to our BayArea 02 gallery--Thanks!  I will also add an image I took on my test drive, showing a view from 14th Ave on a mostly clear day when you can see the Marin headlands.  This might be a reason to follow the route again on a clear day when you can see the Golden Gate Bridge beyond Sunset Reservoir and Mt Diablo from Ocean Ave as you drive past I-280.

Thanks for adding photos

    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
