ALPINA 2002

While waiting for my plane ride back to the Bay Area from OC, I accidently surf into Ireland Engineering's website (thinking I was logging in here) and what do I see but a pirated picture of mine on his website....(the "always workin' thumbnail, next to coming soon) ....very interesting. Maybe the coming soon will be him finishing off the fenders for me? Apparently he doesn't not understand copyright. This is the original photo.

The photo was taken by ALPINA before the 6 hour Nurburgring race the car was about to compete in (its maiden voyage). The photo was given to me by them when they confirmed that I was in possession of the same car. The internet is somewhat all about "piracy" anyway - don't really care about that. In fact I have a few photo's that have other's copyright's on them as well, however I don't use them commercially in any way, shape or form. When it comes to this subject most folks just don't care (or maybe aren't aware) that is of course until they end up in court (and I am not suggesting that of course). Just surprised to see it pop up there. If he were selling posters or some such that he made from that photo we would be having a discussion for sure.

First off, absolutely NO socks with sandals--completely unacceptable unless you are old, a hippie, or just a plain old hippie. Besides, what the hell are those guys doing with sandals on working on a car in the pits anyway?!?! Secondly, I would, in fact love a poster of that picture--from Jeff Ireland or whoever. What do I care? I'm a poster whore! Thirdly, the guy with the jack is probably Neal Schon--guitarist for Santana and Journey!

....and the guy at the jack-handle is Borris Said .

Ahhhh, good ol' Boris.

Still have vivid images on my brain of him drifting like a maniac on the BMW Performance Center course in a brand spanking new M5 during O'Fest 2000. You should've seen the eyes on his passengers bulging out in sheer terror.

    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
