Northwest Arkansas has a beautiful fall. You should really plan on taking the trip this year. Bo Black has it planned for October 11. Mark your calender. Here is his letter:

"I hope everyone is doing well and their 02 is ready to roll.

The fall drive will be a bit different this year. We will leave the hotel Saturday at noon, meet at 11:30 - please have a full tank

and be ready to go. We will have lunch, enjoy an afternoon of touring the Ozarks, dinner, and an informal program.

Sunday a.m. we will make a shorter loop to brunch and send you home (done by 12:00).

We will again be based at the Bentonville Hilton Garden Inn. I540 exit 85 west .5 mi 479 464 7300, mention BMW group.

The Mid-America 2002 Festival (www.midamerica02fest.com pics and video of past events) will be held in Eureka Springs

April 24-25. We have folks from all over the US who are making plans to attend - should be our largest event ever.

We will have a new polo/sweatshirt/cap design. Profits from our shirt sales go to fall and spring event expenses.

The shirt color and design has not been finalized, I'll get that out to you - if you would like one you can order by email.

Look forward to seeing everyone October 11-12 or in Eureka Springs in April.

Be well,

Bo

PS Folks who are in Friday - Chris Leonard is leading a trip to dinner. Contact him at skip197@juno.com"

I love California for the weather, scenery, and the regional and national parks we have, but there are two things we don't get that I love. Fall colors in the trees, and thunder storms. I've always thought the stock colors on the 2002 blended well with fall colors in the trees.

on the way to/from Mammoth having them frequently. My buddy got stuck in Independence a couple of weeks ago for eight hours because of thunderstorms and flash-flooding. It's bad enough sweating in an '02 driving through the Mojave Desert when it's 100+ degress, and when you do it in a 100+ degree thunderstorm it's pure hell.

You're totally right Jay. I meant to speak of the bay area honestly. We don't see them very often here at all. I've been through some real soakers at Lake Havasu and everywhere in between there and Palm Springs. Not very often do we see one in the Bay Area though.

    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
