  1. Just Needs a Recharge

    Author: Rob Siegel

    Air conditioning in vintage cars often falls into disrepair, as owners figure that it never really worked all that well when it was new, and assume that rejuvenation would be prohibitively expensive. In his new book, Just Needs a Recharge: The Hack Mechanic Guide to Vintage Air Conditioning, Rob Siegel details exactly what's needed to resurrect long-dead air conditioning in a vintage car, or install a/c in a car that never had it. In a level of detail not found in any other automotive a/c book,

  4. The Best of the Hack Mechanic

    Author: Rob Siegel

    In 1986, after owning eleven BMWs in three years, Rob Siegel sent an unsolicited article to Roundel, the magazine of the BMW Car Club of America. Little did he know that it would kick off 35 years of do-it-yourself automotive writing, and that his monthly column The Hack Mechanic? would attract a community of like-minded enthusiasts who, like Rob, try to come up with creative workarounds to keep their cars running without taking them to the dealer every time they hiccup. More than just "use 10mm

  5. BMW in the 20th Century

    Author: Jackie Jouret

    FROM ITS BEGINNINGS as a manufacturer of aircraft engines during World War I, BMW has been on the cutting edge of technology and design. Branching out first into motorcycles, then into automobiles, the company applied its engineering talent to build race-winning machinery until World War II put a stop to motorsport, and indeed all civilian transportation projects. Nearly destroyed by Allied bombing, BMW rose from the ashes to once again produce motorcycles and cars that stirred the souls of enth

  12. BMW Classic Coupes, 1965 - 1989

    Author: James Taylor

    A definitive guide to BMW's high-performance classic coupes, tracking their rising success from 1965 to 1989. After the doldrums of the post-war years, BMW had felt the need for a flagship grand touring coupe. The 507 of the late 1950s and the 3200 CS that replaced it in the early 1960s may not have made much money for the company, but they were a reminder of its aspirations. Then in 1964, a striking new coupe emerged from the building blocks of the latest saloon car range. The 2000 and 2000 CS,

  14. The BMW 2002

  15. Resurrecting Bertha

    Author: Rob Siegel

    To most people, cars are just appliances to be disposed of when they rust, become unreliable, or are outgrown. But to car people, it's different. Cars are like photographs that occupy physical space. They hold aromas that trigger memories, and remind us of who we once were. In addition, to some people, the relationship with the car itself is a real thing. Many enthusiasts pine for the cars of their youth, regret that they ever let them go, and yearn and search for them the way people do with old

  16. BMW 2002 Ultimate Portfolio 1968-1976

    Author: R.M. Clarke

    The 2002 began as the brainchild of Max Hoffmann, BMW's US importer, who wanted a car to follow up the 1600-2. Hoffman suggested using the 2-liter engine from its larger saloons, which would give excellent performance even in emissions-controlled form. The BMW engineers did as Hoffmann suggested and the result took the motoring world by storm on its announcement in 1968. So popular did the 2002 become that it went on to sell more than 300,000 examples over the seven years of its production. The

Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn't simply about going fast. Using the techniques needed on the race track, one can successfully

  23. Finding Elvis's 507

    Author: Jackie Jouret

    In 1958, Elvis Presley took a BMW 507 roadster for a highly-publicized test drive in Frankfurt, Germany, where he was serving as a private with the US Army. The car became Elvis’s daily driver during his time overseas, but its fate after his return to the US remained largely hidden. In 2005, Bimmer magazine editor Jackie Jouret began looking for Elvis Presley’s 507. Digging through myth and misinformation, she found it three years later, located within an hour’s drive of the Bimmer offices in No
