I'm off to the Nurburgring Historics

This will be a cool trip, we're stopping off in a small village in the Mosel Valley for a wine run on our way to the ring. I'm going to the ring with a fellow E30 owner from the bay area. Imran works for MB in San Jose and is on temporary assignment to the Mercedes plant here in Sindelfingen. I'll take lots of pics and have a report next week. Meanwhile it's Sommerfest here in Stuttgart

http://www.sommerfest-stuttgart.de/ I've come to the conclusion that Germans will make any excuse to throw a party/festival. I'll just hop on the U-Bahn and make my way to the fest after work.

Where on the Mosel are you staying? That's a great area to hang.

Wow, that sounds like fun. My parents have been to that area. My Dad apparently is a fan of the Autobahn/rental car combo.

Post some pics when you have a chance. I'll be the cars are cool, but it will probably be all about the atmosphere.

I hope you have a great time and are able to get onto the Ring, either with Sabina's ?Taxi, or in your own car. My friend is writing an article for Bimmer mag about his journey to the Ring, and on it. My dream is to take my 2002 to the Ring. Crazy- ya probably, but it is possible. All it takes is for the Euro to take a precipitous slide down, and a lot of time, and prep.

    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
