  1. 14" NK Hub Caps

    I am parting with four 14" hub caps from my 1969 2000 NK. They are not perfect but in remarkably good condition. See pictures. The roundels could be replaced or you can roll with some patina. They are yours for $125 plus $25 shipping.
  2. Bulbs for Euro Headlights

    Thanks for that. I'll get in touch with Daniel Stern Lighting and place an order. Brian
  3. Bulbs for Euro Headlights

    Thanks MOJOJOY. This is just what I was looking for. My only question is whether the longer halogen bulb will fit without touching the metal reflector that is inside the headlight. Can anyone confirm? Thanks, Brian
  4. Hi there. I have been busy sorting the 2000 that Connor so kindly delivered a little more than a week ago. There has been some progress and some setbacks but I love the car. As much as I appreciate the quad lamps, I actually prefer the Euro headlights on this car. I'm in the process of making the swap and need help with the bulbs. One of the Euro light has a bulb and the other does not. Given that the existing bulb has a broken filament, I'd like to buy two new bulbs. What should I be looking for? The existing bulb is an OSRAM 40W. It is not high/low beam bulb so is the small bulb on the outer edge of the fixture the high beam? I'd greatly appreciate guidance! Thanks in advance. Brian
  5. Need opinion on possible NK purchase

    Chris, Your car looks fantastic. I obviously love the color, but the Euro lenses and driving lights put it over the top. Brian
  6. Need opinion on possible NK purchase

    I think I should introduce myself at this point. I participate on the 2002 side but am new to the NK world. After some stressful moments, I came away with the 2000 on eBay yesterday. Jonathan - I see that you were actively pursuing the car too. I can only say that I hope to do the car justice and I wish you well in your search. Nick - I too like the quad lamps but am thinking of converting to the Euro lenses/grills. I would also really like to go back to the original steel wheels. After I get to know the car, I'm sure the list will grow. For now though, I'm really over the moon about bring this home. Sadly, my '72 Bavaria will have to go but I've longed for a NK sedan and that is now happening. The car is in Oregon and will make its way north of the Golden Gate as soon as next week. I'll post more info when it arrives. I'm glad to be part of the NK world. Brian
  7. Happy Father's Day! June 18, 2017

    Ah, Rob Seigel. I love The Hack!
  8. Hey there. The Bay Area '02 Show & Shine held in Brisbane on May 6th is featured in an article on Petrolicious. Great pictures and write-up. https://petrolicious.com/articles/the-bay-area-02-show-swap-meet-is-celebration-of-community?utm_source=Petrolicious+Newsletter&utm_campaign=bc0e7779ca-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2017_05_23&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_ff9b060c1d-bc0e7779ca-296298725&mc_cid=bc0e7779ca&mc_eid=c44156a551
  9. Wow, 86 views and still this car/owner remains unidentified! Who knew that this color could fly under the radar?
  10. With all of the many distractions at the '02 Swap & Show last Saturday, I didn't manage to speak with the owner of the Golf E3 parked on the lawn. A friend living in southern California has an E3 in the same color and would like to be put in touch. If the owner reads this, or you know who it is, I'd appreciate knowing the contact information. Thanks! Brian '73 2002 (Inka) '72 Bavaria (Chamonix)
  11. Thank you, Lisa, for putting this together! We really had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the combination of cars and people. The location is fantastic, just a short drive from Santa Rosa. After a quick trip to the city, we actually returned in the afternoon to visit the space museum and to have lunch at Boca Pizza. Looking forward to Brisbane! Thanks again. Brian
  12. Derby Grey 1800 Article

    I saw the car at Legends of the Autobahn last year and absolutely loved it. For me, it ticks all the right boxes. The pictures are well composed too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Show me your garage/work space

    That beautiful F1 car may have been driven by Giancarlo Fisichella.
  14. Show me your garage/work space

    Okay, everybody stop! We've just found the world's best garage! Preyupy: Is that real? I'm trying to catch my breath.
  15. Show me your garage/work space

    DonP: You may not have the garage of your dreams (although not bad at all) but the contents are over the top!
