National Capital Chapter BMWCCA Chapterfest tomorrow


Recommended Posts

Registration is closed for Chapterfest but you can still show up tomorrow at Bowie, MD, for the event.

The weather seems to be perfect for a day with over 244 other BMW fans. It is a day of autocross, show-n-shine and just hanging out.

Red, Hot and Blue will be there with food.

Hope to see some of you there. If there seems to be significant interest tomorrow, we may plan a fall outing of some kind for the vintage/classic crowd.

Bill, I have received requests offline from both John McW and Max Q-Tip (Jonathan) to attend, but I simply have too much to do, and not enough time in which to do it. Please count my absentee ballot, however, as a strong positive vote for your suggestion to do something vintage. That's an excellent idea.

Y'all have fun tomorrow - wish I could be there, but with all the things on my plate, it would be totally irresponsible of me to blow them off. Take lots of pictures, please.

I'll be there but without my tii - the engine is still apart. I've got some interesting news after visiting J&F's machine shop.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in the AM. Hope they let me in the gate with my DD Honda.

    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
