Relocation Blues


Recommended Posts

I just moved to Washington, DC and am looking for a job (anyone know any architects up here?). The bad part is that I had to leave my 02 in Texas until I find a suitable place to store it for the winter up here. Man, I miss year-round driving!

Otherwise, I guess I'll have to stick with watching for updates on the board members' project blogs.

Its not that bad in DC in the winter, unless your car is showroom I'd consider driving it year round down there. Just don't use it on rainy/snowy winter days.

Do you have off street parking?

I think you'll find it's a pretty good place to live. And there are quite a few of us 2002 curmudgeons around, too.

until I find a suitable place to store it for the winter up here.

There is a space available in the garage in Ashton, Maryland, where Otis and Izzy the Isetta live. It's a really nice building, with a full shop (with Snap-On tools) and a 9,000 pound lift. Otis and Izzy (and my Brimar trailer) all live there with their neighbor, an original matching-numbers "The Judge" - what a cool car (orange!). Email me offline at davidbowen5828 at comcast dot net if you are interested. Otis could always use a good neighbor - the guy on the other side of Otis is a slumlord -- a '67 Caddy, all rusted, waiting for resto - drives me crazy, since the owner spreads his rusty parts all over the floor. We're trying to evict him.

Of course, there is rent involved, so finding a job will be job one. Sorry, I don't know any architects (other than a golf-course architect, who is sucking wind right now, with the economy the way it is).

My firm is looking for architects, but our closest office to DC is Baltimore, so that's probably no help. We have other offices east of Mississippi R if you don't take to DC. Email me at randymolson at gmail dot com if you ever want more info.

Yeah, I would drive year round if I lived in DC. Well below the Mason-Dixon line.

    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
