You guessed it...more fun with rusty metal. The insanity continues.

You may notice the fabrication method for the second frame rail changed. The first one was ridiculously hard to bend (16 gauge), so I re-created my own "welder-series" frame rail from stock. It still needs seam welding but this only took 35 minutes from start to finish...

Bring on the haters :)

Guys...(and Girls...).

Its sad news....the car will be parted.

I have recently sold my welder and air compressor to pay some bills...and the bills are still mounting.

Luckily there is little investment in this car (bar time) so the loss is not huge. Most people would have crushed this car ages ago, so its not as if this thing was ideal.

So keep your eyes open I will be selling a ton of stuff including some new parts collected years ago...

Its a bitter sweet ending....

    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
