  1. Mike, I never saw a 'crimped" version, just the "screw-on" versions. Just out of curiosity, can you post a pic of your failed unit? Thanks, -Bob
  2. I was driving a snot green 1971 Chevy Vega when I ordered a brandy-new 1973 Sahara 2002 from Ridgefield European Motors in Ridgefield CT in Sept 1972. Picked it up on Dec 18, 1972. Most fun vehicle I ever owned. So much so, that exactly 40 years later, on Dec 18 2012, I bought "Schatzi", my '72 2002.
  3. Here's hoping you'll be well enough soon to get out there driving again! Good luck, -Bob
  4. If anyone wants me to send them the pdf file of the Soles carb book, please note that I'm currently on vacay in (sunny & warm) Florida. As soon as I get back home to (cold & wet) NY, I'll email it to whoever requests it. Enjoy, -Bob
  5. Looks like this is the tool referenced above: https://www.esslinger.com/watch-cannon-pinion-and-watch-hand-remover-tool/?gclid=Cj0KCQjw9fntBRCGARIsAGjFq5FC7PFIwDlwNnm2PIAPiYiUCBXg2Ifq_Bvu82xFOSqzZYfIFBJhwCgaAsPwEALw_wcB

  7. RAS-2002


    Car originally sold in MA; I purchased it from 2nd owner on Dec 18 2012. Now resides in NY. Mostly original; only change was replaced Solex 2bbl w/ Weber 32/36.
  8. Here's my all-time favorite ad. I was in High School, just starting my senior year in 1968, and saw this ad in Car & Driver. Yes, I'm an Olde Pharte now! I also fondly remember all those funky and hilarious VW ads from the 60s. And how about those cool "MG Mitten", "AMCO", and "Vilem B. Haan" ads from the 60s? Loved 'em all! Here's a link to a bounty of BMW ads from 1964-1974: (not sure if I ever posted this or not. If I already did, my apologies.) http://e9-driven.com/Public/Library/BMW-AdArchiveCD/html/chklist.htm Enjoy! -Bob
  9. Huge Thanks to Steve K. (and all the helpful 2002faq'ers) for the best site on the web! Great folks, great info, great great great! -Bob
  10. With temps here in NY in the 20s and no salt on the roads this past Sunday, I took Schatzi out for a spirited drive. First time since mid-October. Lotsa fun! But a loose fuel line to my fuel pump had me smelling gas... Pulled over, tightened up the clamp, and I was on my way. Disaster averted. I broke the cardinal rule: check things out BEFORE going for that drive!! Tons of snow, ice, rain and abnormally cold weather are predicted for the coming month, so that's it for any driving till Spring. You guys in the warmer climates have no idea how lucky you are! -Bob
  11. Q: How many dollars do I think it took me to get my '02 right? Do you want the actual dollar amount, or how much I told my wife that I spent? Either way, I can't answer the question, because #1, it'd make me sick, and #2, my wife would surely divorce me... I can just hear my wife: "You spent HOW MUCH on WHAT?????" -Bob
  12. Thanks, guys. If you say they're out there somewhere, I guess I'll keep looking. I might end up taking the AutoArt model I have of a tii and mod-it / repaint / remove the FI and install an air cleaner on it, then repaint it to Malaga, so it'll resemble "Schatzi", my '72 '02... best, -Bob
  13. Hi everyone, I've been looking for a 1:18 diecast model of a pre-74 2002. Not a Tii. Not a Turbo. Not a convertible. Not a Baur. Not a Police version. Googled the heck out of it; search Ebay till my fingers bled. Still no luck. You'd think *someone* made a version of their most popular model. Anybody have any ideas as to a possible source? Thanks, -Bob
