Wanted: Straight Front Subframe for free or beer in Nor Cal

Recommended Posts

Tweaked my front subframe a bit, but the budget is already pretty stretched by the rest of the upcoming front end rebuild. Subframe just needs to be straight, I'll be refinishing it and using my own control arms, bushings, etc.

Would love to pick yours up for free or super cheap. Anyone out there wanna free up some garage space? Thanks and cheers!

...and the only way to save them was to sacrifice my...

Uh. Yeah. No.

Some close friends had a camping wedding just south of Mt. Shasta last weekend. The 11 mile paved road up to the place was incredible, just crazy twisty 2nd gear stuff.

Even better was the 8 mile dirt road to get to the swimming hole. So I was being a hooligan and trying to do those entire 8 miles sideways and I hung out the tail just a bit too much on one corner. I put the nose of the car a little off the edge of the road and bumped a rock or two.

It was pretty mellow really, and I was hoping I didn't actually mess anything up. The steering was way off right away though, and I had to adjust the tie rods once we were back at camp to make it even come close to straight again.

After looking at the car on the lift at JP's shop on Monday, he noticed I had tweaked the passenger side of the front of the subframe pretty good. I'm not sweatin' it, because a front end rebuild was the next big project anyway.

Why build a car if you can't have fun with it, right?

Let me know if you dig up any good subframes in SacTown Norm. Cheers,

    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
