has anyone seen a streched 2002 limo?


Recommended Posts

Uncle Rick and I did a Town Car years ago, just for practice. It turned out okay, then it sat on the street for a few years, collecting rust. So we sold it to some sap for a couple of hundred bucks. It was a good exercise in bodywork, but that's about it.

So recently, when the Houston car became available, I mentioned to Uncle Rick, maybe we should stretch an 02. He threatened to cut my balls off with a blow torch. I need my balls, so I quickly jettisoned the stretch idea.

I commend anyone who creates one of these things. I warn, however, that they drive and handle like crap. It's a lot of effort, for about 30 minutes of gratification. Then, one is left wondering, WTF do I do with this thing? And the resale value is zippo. But it would be fun, so go for it. I'll take a pass, however, having "been there done that" on a lowly Town Car.

An inspired idea...looks familiar.

Being from Kalamazoo, Michigan (and elsewhere) has it's advantages.

Checker Motors made the Aerobus. You could see the grey ones from the Upjohn Company transporting passengers from the Holiday Inn on Crosstown Parkway (yes, the one in the picture) out to the home offices on Portage Road.

    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
