Pics From the 02 Group's Final Drive of the Year

Recommended Posts

The 7th Annual Covered Bridge, Pottery and Fruitcake Drive Takes place in and around Seagrove, pottery capital of NC and the Uwharrie National Forrest. Great roads, no traffic and the ladies have a really good time shopping in Seagrove and at Southerm Supreme Fruitcake Company. The leaves were at their peak (not evident by the photos taken by Humberto and me) and it was a beautiful fall day

This year we had 15 02s, 3 coupes and about 6 other 'non BMW' participants. The event was highlighted by the debut of Scott and Etta's Taiga touring and Shane Sahara 2800 CS.

Some photos along the way

We have a few 'high strung' 02s in our club that seem to require a lot of maintenance but run really well when they do, and we have affectionately dubbed them the 02 Group Fighter Jet Squadron (jets require about 10 hours of maintenance for each hour of flight time :)

Select the best answer:

"473" (the number in the Colorado window) is --

a. The number of calories in one bite of fruitcake.

b. The weight (in ounces) of one fruitcake

c. The average number of pounds (4.73 - missing the decimal) that the average person gains by eating one fruitcake.

d. The number of Jagermeister shots that Scott Sturdy consumes on an average fruitcake drive (again, missing the decimal - even Scott won't do more than five shots of Jager).

e. Jonathan Maxson's true age.

f. All of the above.

    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
