EMILY *might* be on the auction block...

Recommended Posts

I've been doing alot of soul searching - and think I'd have more fun in a car that doesn't contain so much emotional / financial / fanatical attachment.

What I really want - is a 2002 race car (EP or perhaps BS class), some nomex, a hauling rig, and a few sets of tires.

If you're thinking about buying a Porsche 911S (69-73) then you might consider Emily instead. If you can afford an early "S" car - then you can afford Emily.

Willing to entertain SERIOUS offers around $30K, and knowing she'd go to a truly caring home is more important than cash. (any yahoo can write a check) Car comes with $70K worth of receipts from previous owners as well as myself. $12K+ in body and metal by McGinn and Co, and a fresh 2.3 liter Eric Kerman motor installed and tuned.

Any interest here, before I take it to a (non internet) auction house?

Dang! I just realized I (honestly) forgot to put this post on the "for sale" page. Steve? Help a fella out here and scoot it over for me? Thanks!

Watkins Glen - and crewing for several SCCA / SVRA 2002s over the years, has given me the bug in a BIG way. I've even been offered seat time in a nice ITB car for schools / competition license attainment.

driving suit $900-1200

HANS device $800

tires (per set) $650

trailer $2500

pickemup truck that won't explode $3000

tent/coleman stove/sleepingbag (you think I can afford a HOTEL at the track - HA!!!???)

gloves/shoes/$7 per gallon race fuel...oh...then there's the CAR...when I finally find it.

...I've been doing the math - and it's depresing.

Not sure what your price range is but I know that ToddK may be willing to part with his race car for a reasonable price. It has a bolt in cage and no log book - so you'll need to do some work. We have gone through the car, suspension, brakes... just about everything but a new cage and log book. Car is solid, has a few diffs, spare motors and a CR box.

send me an email if you are interested - thomasjwinston AT yahoo DOT com

I have more pics, details, etc... Car is well sorted, fairly well documented and could be put together in race ready condition in short order

It's straight up Malaga (that was the original color also). I asked McGinn to put a teensie weensie bit more red in it - because many Malaga cars look a little too brown for my taste. (and original paint ones fade to grape purple!)

Nice. The color really looks amazing against the black, silver and chrome through out the car.

Paul there's always the lottery... Or you could buy a car from Johnny on the cheap... something about Johnny's cars dont' require Nomax or fancy tires IIRC

Good luck with the sale - A good portion of Emily is sitting on my fiancee's ring finger... maybe I should have asked Emily to marry me instead?

...something tells me that Johnny's cars lack that "new car smell".

...and .....let's be fair here: I've heard the same rumor about a certain yellow 2002 in Australia, too. ;-)

A thousand pardons my man. Didn't realize the "H" was out of place.

Now, about those cars of yours.......? *smirk*

Shouldn't you be driving GM cars anyway? (ie: Glut Maximus)?

What's wrong with my cars?

GM? Why?, I've been working on BMW's for 31 years...since i was 15.

I've supplied BMW parts to at least 2000 satisfied customers over the last 10 years.

You should speak of what you know...not of what you think you know or assume.

GM, huh? I parted a Mercury Villager once.

Made a great garden cart for 1 week!

Who is this "joHnny" you are refering to?

Dear Jonny,

Please accept my sincerest appology for spelling your name wrong. If there is any way that I can make it up to you please let me know.

Sincerely,

Tom Winston

    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
