I was there for the 3 days. Cool weather, lots of cars but far less than last year, probibly the gas crunch. The featured marque at the Festorics Saturday (Laguna Seca Rolex Historic races) was midget racers. Those were the small versions of F1 casr many drivers got into racing on. All 4 cylinder , just a few different builders.

Friday at the Concourso Italiano was at a new site, Marina airport behind Fort Ord a few miles north of Monterey. Usually a good event but the non-golf course venue took alot away from the overall quality of the event. About 100 BMWs in the corral, with about 20 coming over from Germany with their owners to do a 2 week drive across Northern California. Several Z1's, some nice cabs, and even a 507 from the east coast. I'll post my pics shortly.

2003 325i, Alpine White

2011 Audi A3 TDI, White, son's new car!

I was part of the SoCal contingent that was in Monterey this past week (i.e. Ray-2002Tii & gang).

I agree with Ray - having Concorso at the Marina airport really wasn't all that appealing. All told, I think there were 7-8 '02s at Concorso.

There were 10-15 '02's in the BMW corral at Laguna Seca on Saturday.

One of the most interesting cars at the Historics was the 6 wheel Tyrell P-23(?) F1 car. The P23 raced on Sunday and I heard it won by 10+ seconds.

    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
