  1. I keep seeing this scene on Ent Credit Union Commercials here in Colorado Springs. I know Ent is a local CU... wonder if the folks in the care are actual owners? Anybody recognize the people or the Malaga sunroof car?

    hoods and a roof?

    See PM G
  3. I must admit... I considered making into a truck if they weren't going to fix it!
  4. Once the insurance company determined the value of the car was much higher than the repair estimate, they no longer considered it a total loss. If if I ever sell the car, it will have a clean title... but it will have a record of collision repair.
  5. UPDATE 03/08/2018: After a month of back and forth with the insurance company, we came to an agreement on valuation that is reasonable. USAA has been great to work with so far, and I had many great conversations with some true car lovers! SOOOO... The car is going to the body shop tomorrow. The final valuation was much higher than the repair estimate, so we are going to have the shop take a look. I'm trying not to get too excited, as I think there is a lot more damage than the initial estimate contained ($8700). I'll continue to update as the adventure continues.
  6. Thanks Y'all.... I'm putting together a TON of information.. and will continue fighting until I get a fair price. G
  7. Hi Oregon 2002ers! Please let me know if you or someone you know bought this vehicle. The drunk #@%hole that ran into my parked car's insurance company is using this vehicle as a comparison for valuation. They said the car in the ad is worth $7,100... I don't buy it for a minute. PLEASE.. if you can help me prove this car is worth what it ACTUALLY sold for... I would be forever in your debt!!! You can PM me if you prefer! The insurance company's initial offer was to total the car and give me $6400. Here's the story http://www.highlineclassics.com/detail-1972-bmw-2002-no_rust_complete_restoration_-used-16322657.html 1972 BMW 2002 VIN: 2584960 Location: Wilsonville OR
  8. Thanks for the replies and positivity everyone. I’m sure they will total the car, it would take a fortune (and an ultimate set of tools) to repair. I’ll probably buy the car back and strip the good stuff, but not sure I’m up for starting over. Might just have a huge garage sale for my Colorado friends! Also... it would be nice to have AC for the drive home after an autocross!
  9. Someone in a pickup truck barreled into my parked car in the wee hours of the morning following the SuperBowl. Fortunately their front license plate was stuck in the wreckage, and police tracked down the culprit. He admitted guilt and is insured. I bought the car in 2001 right around the time this website started. I never would have had the balls to try a lot of the projects I performed on this car without the resources and support of these forums. Gonna miss the old guy...

    Carb Throttle Lever

    Hey, all... still looking for the carb piece. There is a better picture here of what exactly I need. Thanks. Gary

    New way to break down.

    Thanks for the great picture, arminyack. I need the two prong fork and the locking washer.

    Carb Throttle Lever

    Howdy... Seems like I used the same arm for both the 38 and 32/36, but I could be wrong. Been a while since I took the 38 off for a rebuild. Picture below:

    HA... tabbed washer. That's a grand idea. arminyack: I'm in Colorado.
  14. Hey 2002ers... been a while since I posted. Just thought I would tell you about an unexpected way to get stranded on the side of the road. My son was driving my '72 home from an Autocross about 80 miles and suddenly lost throttle. Got the car off the side of the road and saw that the throttle linkage was no longer attached to the 32/36.... Oops. In the parts drawing, #16 came loose apparently from vibration (or maybe overuse... my son WAS driving). Part #17 went bouncing down the road never to be found. First time that happened. I've had to be towed home from Autox for a blown rear diff, exploded clutch, and a mystery electrical gremlin... but never something this silly. Moral of the story... Locktite would probably be a good idea... and keeping my AAA card on the keyring can save the day. SO... if anyone has an extra #17 laying around, let me know Posted in Parts Wanted as well. G

    Carb Throttle Lever

    Hi all, Looking for #17 in the drawing. I am using it on a 32/36 and/or 38 Weber carb. #16 on the drawing vibrated loose and I lost #17 somewhere on the road (and left me stranded). I'm in Colorado... let me know if you have one for sale. G
