Season Finale at Road Atlanta


Recommended Posts

We finally worked most of the kinks out of my car at VIR at the Fall Festival in September. It sure felt good getting back onto the track after such a long absence! Nick Craw says he enjoyed his time at VIR at the Trans-AM Reunion party hosted by Apex Vintage (Bob Breed's group) on Thursday night and wants a rain check for next year since we didn't have the car ready for Friday's qualifying race.

SVRA's season finale in Atlanta will be a big weekend for "old #64" as Nick calls it; it will be the first time it has arrived ready to race and do battle in over a year and a half.

Bob, if your out there, thank you for your helping hand over the past few years. Thanks also to Perry Genova, without him, we wouldn't have found a windshield for the race @ VIR. I just wish I had a picture of us putting the windshield in at the track!

I hope to have pictures to share after Road Atlanta. If you have a chance to be there, be sure to stop by.

It's been a few years.................

I hope you still have some(if not all) of the 'trick sh*t' that was built into the car. Hope you made it as 'bullet proof' as Back in the Day and drive it up at the front of the pack as Nick always did.

Glad to see it back on the rack track where it belongs.

The car is finally presentable and somewhat sorted. After we got back from VIR, I spent time tending to details we just didn’t have time for prior to VIR.

Atlanta was a blast, the car handled like a dream! We ran well during the Enduro having the second best time in our group. Our mandatory 5-minute pit stop got a bit interesting when the trunk decided to lock itself resulting in a 12.5-minute stop! Too bad, with the lap times we were running, we felt for sure we would be finishing 2nd in class.

Sunday’s race went equally as well when the only part we hadn’t replaced/rebuild on the car gave up the ghost – the tranny. So - - we have a great start on next year with a few winter projects to complete!

We've run both the 5 speed and the 4 speed in the car over the years. Right now we only use 4.

I saw where you bought Yale's old car! I'll have to go back and re-read the article. Ever think about going vintage racing? We plan to make Watkins Glenn this year and love to have you stop by. I've been in touch with Nick Craw for the past 8 months and we plan to have him drive #64 at one of the events in 2009.

    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
