Broken Golf 2002 by highway 237 Milpitas CA

Around 11:45 I saw a tow truck in front of 2002 on the side of 880 and 237. Did not look good...

Hope all works out.

That would be me. It was a splendid day. The sun was shining, there was a pleasant breeze. The smell of trash in Milpitas was, well, less trashy smelling. I had just finished a tasty breakfast at Baldies cafe in Union City and started to make my way to the office. The traffic that day was oh so light. I was cruising at a steady 70mph getting passed by everything in the world. Enjoying the breeze flowing through the car from each window and the sunroof. I was approaching the turnoff for 237 to head to the office and kablamo! I heard a part or two fly away from what I estimated to be the driveline. I stuck my fingers under the car to feel around and found that my Guibo had decided to take a dump on me. I could have probably limped it home, but I decided it was better to just call the tow truck and give the 2002 a little break from road life. Driving the E38 again for a while. I never intended to put a bunch of miles on my 2002, but it's been such a pleasure to drive lately. The weather has been perfect for it. Plus it's nice to have people pull up along side you, slow down, give their horn a couple of friendly taps, look at you, and throw you a fat thumbs up with a lip sync'd "Nice car man". I was surprised to have a woman throw me one of these friendly gestures a couple of weeks ago. I thought to myself, "That woman has class".

O noes! Your car looked sweet at laguna seca!

Why thanky! This is but a minor setback for me. I am posting some pics from the Historics right now and will finish posting the reset tomorrow. I actually met one of the previous owners of my car who did some nice improvements. I'll post more about this in another post later this weekend. I found out some cool history of my car.

    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
