I have the best wife in the country

So I finally have the shop of my dreams. . .

Here is the crown jewel I found on my local Craigslist, a Western Hoist WLO-90. 9000 lbs of lifting goodness. . . steal of a deal. . .

(of course the hoist came without the cheesy Detroit iron)

Oh, I don't know.... I submit mine as the best too ;-)

She told me to go buy one of those lifts when I almost got pancaked by a dropping 911 (the jack lifted the floor tile out of place).... and she let me buy my first 2002 literally one day before giving birth to our son ! Better yet, she drove me to pick it up and broke water on the trip... He was born 7 hours later the following morning ! Do I win ? ;-)

$200 E21 because "it's too clean to go the crusher", spots '02's (and other vintage cars) I haven't seen and urges me to go look at 'em, wants a CS coupe for herself, and insists on coming with me to most '02 events, even when it means a long drive in an unairconditioned car in the summer heat.

My wife not only allows me to have 26 or so BMWs, but helps coordinate the SoCAl Vintage BMW event, offers to feed and open our new house to a bunch of 02 strangers [is there such thing?], AND was working on her own project, a 2000cs when she was 7 months pregnant..... pulling the engine/trans herself, scrape and prep the bay, and painting it by herself!

Oh yeah, and I get to go on multiple drives with the guys, that she really wants to do too, but needs to watch our two kids instead. She also does all of the Ebay BMW parts listing!...... and she looks hot in a dress too!

Love that woman!

    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
