Well, the time has finally come to accept that we have moved from California... After 35 years, 442 KCF has finally been taken down:

And is now this:

Austin is pretty strict on out-of-state registration, but frankly I have been running on expired tags for 2 years (it's always insured butI work from home and don't drive much) and I should have done it a long time ago. It was really hard for me to do! I just didn't want to give up my "blue plate"...

I guess I need to be a New York Giants fan now... :-)

my Tii is wearing South Dakota plates in the home of 6 generations of Delks.

The only home I own is in the Black Hills.

An Ur oppa pulled out in front of me without looking I stopped but the 4 light grill on was almost gone ......

Life in small town Texas.

Thanks - original car color is Baikal blue metallic. When we repainted it, we went with AlaskaBlau metallic - a '74 Tii color. It's nice too and has a bit of a mind of it's own - sometimes it's dark blue, sometimes light blue and sometimes purple!

It will someday go back to Baikal...

I agree, the bolts I had were ratty and before I put the holder back on I wanted to buy some new ones.

Go Jayhawks!

The State of Texas is very particular about license plate borders - even though a lot of people have them. The border cannot cover up any part of the word "Texas". If it does, that's something they can ticket you for. A good friend's wife got pulled over for speeding, and they tacked that onto her ticket.

Be careful.

In case you don't know, Texas allows you to use Year of Manufacture (YOM) Plates. This links gives you some info http://www.turnerplates.com/index.html. The info on the TX DOT link is hard to find.

Also if this is not your daily driver, check out the antique car registration $50+/- for 5 years instead of $50 every year plus safety inspection is not required. You can order a reproduction YOM inspection sticker.

    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
