    1973 BMW 2002 For Sale

    Anyone interested into a well sorted Southern car, this is the one. I have seen this 02 in person and drove along with the owner on a few occasions. Great 02 from a serious 02 aficionado. GLWS

    '74 2002 pre-purchase inspection?

    You can try Bemer Motor on Richmond. They can do pre-inspection and can tow broken vehicles. Ask me how I know. Ask for Ismael Martinez and explain what you want to do. As for repairs on 02’s in Houston, there are other alternatives. Bemer fixed a Getrag tranny for a neigbor of mine on a 74 02. Others might have different experience but they can and do know 02’s. Good luck JP

    Well, thank you Santa Rob, Had great fun reading Memoirs, now it's time to order the rest of the collection. Perhaps Santa will bring an A/C for the Houston summer season. Can't wait for the 2020 version of the Getrag transmission bible in Audio book version with some anecdotes from Rob how he became MidAmerica'02Fests Iron Butt winner. JP

    76 02 Rolling Body-No engine

    Jesse, Good to know you keep the 02 in Houston and give it a go to restore. Will send you a PM to see how we can help you locally within the Houston 02 community. I am sure someone had a crankshaft or other required M10 parts laying around. JP
  12. Terry Tinney in California did an excellent job on a 121Ti head I send couple years ago. He line bored the head to accomodate a 300 degree BMW cam and customized valves. Strong built, reasonable price, highly recommended
