New Shop-Finally


Recommended Posts

We don't have too much of a formal announcement yet, but we've ALMOST completed moving our entire shop to a location almost 3x as large as our old shop.

Check out some pix here I have some cool shots of 5 02s on flatbeds etc that I will post later:


The old shop served us well, it saw the business grow from an after work hobby to a full fledged restoration shop of course with encouragement and more importantly business and reccomendations from many FAQ'ers.

We just plain outgrew the old shop, and anyone who's been there in the last couple years could see that the space we were in was an impediment to efficient work flow. I rented that shop 9 years ago to kill time after work and work on my own projects, and with a LOT of help from my brother Dan as well as all the guys who worked in the past (and the four who currently do) for me its really grown.

Contact info is as follows as we have had some logistical problems that saw my internet down, email down and/or phone down. I dont want to get lumped into the shop that disappears category you know.

Shop number (860) 793 2002 (thankfully I was able to keep the 2002 number)

email: matt@sports-car-restoration.com

Actual physical address is 123 Whiting St, Unit J, Plainville, CT 06062

Its been a huge undertaking moving about 30 project and parts cars, and tons and tons of spare parts, but we took the time to organize the new shop properly so that work will go smoother and better, once we start working which I really want to do.

We're still working on some wiring and infrastructure issues, but we can actually almost work on cars here! This is a relief because I am better at working on cars than moving them.

I have also of course found that among dusty boxes that I had not peeked into in years, that I have some really good parts (trim, mechanical body, interior) that I may never need. I have too much to list and not the time to do it, but to anyone looking for parts, let me know, I have tons of stuff that I going to put up for sale soon!

    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
