I can't wait any longer, I have to post a pic


Modifier

Recommended Posts

I'm going to start a Project Blog, but I can't wait to post a pic of the front bumper that my dad and I just installed. We were just so excited that everything lined up and bolted right on with little adjustment. Car is a 1976 that I have had since I was 15 (32 now). This is its 2nd restoration and this time around it is getting all sorts of upgrades I couldn't afford while in high school - chrome bumper conversion, 5spd, Panasports, 40 DCOEs, coilovers, etc. More to come, now the pic...

    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

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
