Where did you drive your 2002 today?


Recommended Posts

Today I took my 73 Tii out for a Sunday morning drive on my favorite Cow Creek Loop from my house a 60 miles round-trip…

Slightly cheating because it was last weekend, but I fired up the 2002tii to take the scenic route to the local animal shelter so I could walk some of the dogs.

 

This one is Dexter, he seemed to like scruffy old cars

And @BarneyT, I would love to experience some of the Hill Country roads someday, some Porsche friends do a pilgrimage every year for their version of a Hill Country Rally, looks amazing.

Drove the Inka with Barney, Greg, David, and Terry up to Waco to meet up with a bunch of Dallas area BMW folks. Beautiful driving day…

Joined the Austin and DFW groups for a meetup in Waco. Great time and people, but a hiccough on the way home.  I blew a 150A battery fuse (added 5 years ago after a cable short almost burned Precious up😳). Replaced it with a 200A fuse that lasted 3 minutes!  
do, a call to Hagerty and my wife and I got to ride on a flat bed tow truck the remaining 18 miles home. 
next project-tracking down the short!

 

UPDATE 2/26:

I found my short👍. The cold start cable (choke) is added years ago managed to move onto the alternator output stud ( which lost its cover) and rubbed through the heat shrink I’d added to it. 
here’s a pic of my battery fuse too👍

Found it👍

my ‘choke’ cable shorted the Alternator (which didn’t have a protective cap). So, no cold start cable till I get a new one, get a cover on the terminal, and re-route the cable!

The drive was just ~20 miles around a local lake, but it was an important one because it's the first of the season.  Up here in NH we're having a little run of 50* weather and I figured it was time to get it out for a spin.  My last drive before this was in early January, so she was only put away for ~2 months.  Not bad for New England! 

Now it's in the garage at my house vs my storage garage, which was one mile away.  One mile

might as well be 1,000 miles away when it's 8pm and you're thinking of either going out to work for an hour or two on a project or sitting down and opening a beer.  Having it back home will make it much easier to sneak out and do a little work at night after the family is in bed.

    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
