Why Orange Is My Favorite Color...

Recently received my early '72 back from the good Mr. Holmes aka Bavarian Rennsport. Fresh engine rebuild and various new mechanicals, as well as tranny and suspension bits. Tight, tight and a blast to now drive. Original paint, free of rust, straight, and sunroof to boot. Picked this up last year from Mike McHenry here in Camarillo. Had been mostly off the road since the early 90's and kept non-op so blue plates stayed. Beautiful cool sunny weekend weather, so though I'd take some pics. I feel so fortunate to have found such an original 02. Thanks for allowing me to share.

Great find, Tom. You need to take a little spin up to SB someday. Let me know, I would love to see it in person. Still have the touring?? Which will you take to LA in October? I am sure we can find someone to drive one for you.

Hey there Steve,

Gotta love inka as you well understand. Still have the touring. Runs great after Bill's extensive work on it as well. Currently have about 2,700 miles on the touring rebuild, so recently been able to let her scream without worry. Hope to see you soon.

Beautiful car ! I'd love to know a little more about Bill's work. I have always heard excellent things.

What a small world it is. I also bought my car from Mike McHenry back in 1999. Malaga carburated 02.

I started a restoration on it about 2 years ago and it is still under way.

Congratulations! Very nice.

Small world indeed. Bill does great work and is located down in eastern San Diego County (Ramona). He loves to talk 02's and is happy to address questions over the phone. His # is (760) 789-2002. Good luck with your malaga.

Super car. The color is great.

Your radio looks really similar to mine - I hardly ever see that. Mine has an extra button...the "seek" button.

Once again, car looks great, and with the rebuilt stuff I'm sure it drives great, too.

Nice! My '76 Inka is just about as original but has not had the benefit of professional resto. Question about your radio - my Blaupunkt is like it but it's a German model. The left button has a misucal note on it, whereas your has an "L". Just what does that button do? Mine seems as if it's a countor or loudness control.

    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
