You've gotta love a kid who...

sees the potential in a car before the work has started. My nephew just got to see his'02 for the first time today. He's so excited I think he's going to be wanting to work on it NONSTOP to get it drivable. I'm really excited that HE wants to work on it with me. I had planned on telling him the deal was contingent upon that. I guess I won't have to.

I fail to see how this kid is much different from a lot of kids who get excited with a new project. He's to be encouraged, for sure, but a lot of us did the same thing and are still doing it.

Well Roman, all I can tell you is around here most kids get brand new / nearly new cars as their first cars. Then they wreck them and get equal replacements. I'm just happy the young man is authentically appreciative.

GOOD FOR HIM! The exception rather than the rule. We have a (formerly) long haired skate board young-un, who is now on his second Fullbright Scholarship....Encourage them all, as they will be (or not) taking care of us old farts in the not too distant future....You are a lucky uncle. And he's a fortunate nephew...Dave V. in NC

Phoenix was my first car (purchased when I was 15), and I've been spinning wrenches on her ever since. Good way to start out!

    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
