Guest

Recommended Posts

Fellas would like to ask for your thoughts. I am getting ready to paint the car and am keeping it stock color of Chamonix. The car will be rocking the same Epsilon wheels with Black centers and polished lip. Should I keep the lower trim or weld in the holes??? I actually like the way it offsets with the wheels. I'm 50/50 so give me some of your thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Scott,

Wheels are going out this week to get re-conditioned. Gonna powder coat the centers to gloss black. Have the bolts re-chromed. Lips straightened and polished.

If I keep the knee line I will get new set after the paint.

Thanks.

I'm having the same dilemma as you, except in a different area. I am trying to decide whether keep the stock US bumpers on my 76 or go to euro chrome bumpers. I am trying to keep the car as original as possible since it has been in my family since new.

Scott,

I say swap out to the euro bumpers. I did the rear and glad I did. The car looks so much nicer with the euro bumpers. And this is a factory look. Just not in the U.S. Pretty straight forward to install for the rear. Let me know if you need help.

Thanks,

I just need to keep my eyes open for bumpers in good shape. If I do go to euro bumpers, I think I would go with the rear bumper that extends to the wheel-well, like on Kreeger's tii.

    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
