  1. I loved this place. I bought every part for my restoration from them. When they were going out of business they called me and asked if I needed anything else because they were liquidating everything. I bought a ton of parts from them even though I had finished my restoration. I still have them stored away in case I ever need them.
  2. Great movie....looks like 95MPH...where was that shot at?
  3. I received this in an email the other day from the BMW Foundation. Sounds like a nice event. I am including the application in case anyone here is interested. Sorry if this has already been posted. Exhibition Application - 50 Years of the 2002.pdf
  4. Does your 2002 use high octane?

    93 Octane Ethanol Free in my Tii.
  5. 2002 to hibernation

    Agree with Ray. I never store mine with out converting to non-ethanol fuel. I run the engine for several minutes to make sure it is circulated the whole way thru the fuel lines and into the engine. For those who cant get non-ethanol fuel at a local station you can buy it from VP Racing - Vintage fuels in 5 gallon containers. Since doing this I don't have rust forming in the tank over the winter.
  6. 1 piece dash

    I am interested in buying if still available. Send me your payment details and I will give you my address.
  7. Speaker options without cutting

    Here is a picture of the speakers (only picture I have..not very good) that came with the car back in 1974. I think all 2002's in the USA had their radios and speakers installed by the dealer. Back then I told the dealer I didn't want any cut-outs so since I had ordered a Blaupunkt stereo in the car they installed matching Blaupunkt speakers on the rear shelf. When I restored my car I had the speakers restored and put back on the shelf as delivered to me in 1974. They aren't pretty but they are original if you are interested is keeping everything period correct. I have seen these come up on Ebay occasionally.
  8. Tire Pressure Decal Location

    Factory placement on my 74tii is the same as Carl's...mine has been restored but I have pictures before the restoration that show it in the same location.
  9. Jim...stop by and I will take you for a ride. I store this in a garage that I rent so it wasn't at the house when you were here last.
  10. This is a 1965 Ford Fairlane 500 coupe, 289 4 barrel, factory 4 speed, all original, 44,000 miles. It is unbelievable how fast this little 289 is.
  11. I cant's say this compliments my tii but I love it....
  12. Here is another pic of your car...click on the link and it is about 5 pics down.... https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/mid-atlantic/401660-2017-katie-s-cars-coffee-thread-great-falls-va-3.html
  13. Highest Agreed to Value from Insurer?

    Hagerty insured my 74 tii several years ago for $75K with only a few pictures. Last week I asked them to bump my insurance to $120K. They told me that I needed to send detailed pictures and pictures of it in garage space. I have 3 cars and a motorcycle insured thru them and they never give me a problem increasing my insurance when I ask them.
  14. RIMs question

    Thanks John....looks like I was missing the "D" when doing my search. Maybe this should be added to the wheel database.
