Harry,

Great pics, I had planned on attending with my 72 Volvo 1800ES since Volvo was the featured marque, also since I was there with the 02 M Roadster for Homecoming 08, I thought it would make a pleasant change.

I did not make it. Dang.

CD, we need to stage another factory invasion sometime soon. There was talk some time ago of doing another 020202-type event there, but I don't know what happened,

Had a chance to drive one of the new twin-turbo 3 series on a small wet/dry autocross course and all I can say is WOW! BMW still has the touch....

Earl, here are a few Volvo pics from the show:

Harry, the pics of the Volvo's, specifically the "Round Fender" older versions are my favorites. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for posting those. I was bummed I missed the show this year but hopefully I will make it next year with my 2002. It is sad though that there are so few 02's at this show. It seems like there should be a lot more.

Eric

PS I love that E30 M3 in the first pic. Have any other pics of that car?

Is the blue one owned by Zack?

Don't know, since I didn't get to meet the owner, but wasn't Zach's car Anthracite?. I did chat for a while with the owners of the red flared car, John Applegit and his wife. Very nice couple who live right in the Spartanburg area. They are organizing an Upstate SC Vintage BMW Group and plan to make it to the Vineyards next year.

Carrosene, I'll check to see if I have anu other pics of the M3. It was for sale, by the way. I was planning to drive up from Atlanta in the Baur, but it still has carb problems. I am planning on getting the Weber 38/38 conversion kit for it.

Are you having your car worked on at Carma? I live really close to there and I remember you mentioning them once.

Id love to buy an M3 like that but sadly my uncle has 2 of them he wants to sell and I can't even afford his. So sad.

    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
