Recommended Posts

SoCal Vintage BMW is teaming up with the Vintage Auto Racing Association

(VARA) as we will sponsor a drive up to Buttowillow Raceway via CA Highway 33 on Saturday, Septmenber 13. We will assemble in Ojai about 7AM, and head up the beautiful drive through the mountains and down into the Central Valley, past Carrizo Plain and take the CA 58 turnoff at McKittrick to go to Buttonwillow.

VARA will have a reserve area in front of the West garages for the BMW's. Jeff Ireland will have a garage and will host a get together Saturday afternoon with drinks and snacks. He'll bring some giveaways as well.

There will also be an opportunity for you to take your Vintage BMW around the track as well duringthe lunch break.

VARA will be having a BBQ with Brats, kraut etc. Tickets for the BBQ are $15. VARA are always open to spectators and car clubs. The great part is the venue is basically free and the racing is fun to watch.

Alfas are always a welcome addition...but will the 02 be ready for the Oct. Meet?

Jeff

Thanks. Fingers crossed, I think the 02 will be there with me at Woodly Park. I'm very excited about having an 02 again. I just made the deal on this '68, but I had a '71 which I sold about 5 years ago, and have regretted it ever since. I love my Alfa of course, but the two cars are about as different as any two vintage European, two door, 2000cc fours can be. I think it's obvious why I need both right?

'74 Alfa Romeo Spider

UPDATE! It looks like all the track guys are going up today, and we've not gotten much a repsonse for this drive, so we're scrapping it. John B is heading straight up the 5 Saturday morning, and anyone who wants to join him should drop a note to his email or socalvintagebmw@yahoo.com. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Jeff

    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
