Only saw one 2002 at the Rolex 24 this past weekend

My two sons and I attended the race this year. We walked every inch of that place, and there were interesting cars everywhere in infield and the parking lots. I expected to see more 2002's but alas there was only one we could find. It was a very cool '74. The guy was from a town outside Savannah. We ended up meeting him at a gas station on the way home. I've got a ton of photos from waling around, but I thought I'd attached a couple you all might be interested in.

I think its been at The Vintage. Looks familiar neat car.

If the license plate was "Tetanus" then it's been at Vintage.  

 

Otherwise, maybe it was the tii that was on EBay a few weeks ago down in Naples FL...

License plate wasn't a vanity plate. He was in a hurry at the gas station. It was a Bucees, so I assume that was code for "Let me get the hell out of here before I spend too much money." We didn't chat long, but he said he'd owned it for a long time. I didn't ask him to pop the hood, but he said it had a mild M10 and a 4 speed. Interior looked pretty stock except for a set of Recaros. Overall, it was a very cool presentation. You can't see it in the photo I posted, but the driver/passenger doors are sprayed flat black, and have the logo of the shop he used to run just outside of Savannah. Which I gotten better photos, but I always feel weird photographing someone's ride when they're in the car.

I love the 3.0csl racecars with the Batmobile body kit!

 

 

Totally agree. The couple of times I've been to the SoCal Vintage, those are my favorites to see up close.

Now thats "patina"

It looked like it was intentional, and then maybe shot with a flat clear. The rockers and nose all looked solid from what I could tell.

    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
