Not to bad for a 50 year old, engine rebuild and a couple of small bits of rust this year all ready for the new garage!

A few pics of the old girl over the years.

 My Tii (Conrad) is 50 in 2 days.  Congrats @SydneyTii

I always thought it was interesting that the factory chose to use Euro rear bumpers--incorporating license plate lights--on cars bound for Australia, where license plates are the same size (more or less) as US plates that have a completely different lighting setup..

Congrats on the 50th! My 74, Gunther, also turns 50 today. He's waiting on paint.... I did splash a dollop of rum on the rad for good measure. 💥

Thank you!
They’re 185x70x13’s and they are not Alpina wheels they are Octavo wheels, funny you should say that I’ve had that a few times, tbh I like them better as the offset works with no rubbing, nothing wrong with Alpinas I just didn’t want to do any bodywork to get them to fit. Next set of tyres will be CN36 Pirelli’s

 

and if anyone has a spare Octavo and wants to ship it to Aus I’d be a very happy 02’er😉

    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
