  1. Gordon, I hope that you'll be able to join us in September. Everyone who attended last year said that they had a great time, and we have a new and really nice venue for this year, where we'll be parking our cars on a nice grass area at a state park in Genoa, so should be fun. If it looks like you're going to be able to make it, please let me know, and I'll make sure that you get a detailed event schedule. Also, if you're interested in a T-shirt please let me know by August 1st. Take care, Ed
  2. HIGH SIERRA ’02 FEST 2016 SEPTEMBER 9-11, 2016 You are cordially invited to bring your vintage BMW 1600 or 2002 and join us for the second annual High Sierra ’02 Fest to be held again in the beautiful Carson Valley, at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We will begin with a meet and greet on the evening of Friday September 9th, in Minden, Nevada. On Saturday morning we will meet up for a group drive that will take us up into some great driving roads in the nearby mountains. In the afternoon we will gather at historic Mormon Station State Park, in the town of Genoa, for a BBQ, social, car time, and a tech session presented by Jack Fahuna. On Sunday morning an optional drive will take place for those who are interested, with a breakfast stop and opportunities to peel off and head home, along the route. Lodging is available in Minden at the Carson Valley Inn, Holiday Inn Express or several smaller establishments in the Carson Valley or in Carson City, 20 miles to the north. The event is free, and T-shirts (Beefy-T with a nice graphic and no advertising) will be available for $20, by pre-order only. Space is limited, because of the size of our venue, so please contact Ed Blake at adirtnerd@frontier.com to confirm your attendance, for more information, or if you would like to reserve a T-shirt. Requests for T-shirts need to be received by August 1, to allow time for delivery.

WHERE – 1559 Wildrose Drive, Minden Nevada. From US 395 turn south at the stoplight at 6th Street. Continue 3 blocks on 6th to County Rd. Turn left on County Rd. and drive 4 blocks to 2nd Street. Turn right at 2nd and the second house, the blue two story on the corner, is where you want to be. The gate to the back yard will be open on the driveway, so just come on in. There is plenty of street parking, or park in the driveway if it’s available. An alternate and easier way is to stay on 395 and turn south on 2nd Street.

We will head out at 9:00 sharp. If you did not make the Friday Meet/Greet, please arrive by 8:45 so that we can go over the drive schedule prior to departure. If you have a walkie-talkie, you may want to bring it, as it may be useful on the drive. 1:00 – 3:00 – Lunch and car clean-up/down time. 3:00 – 7:00 – Static Car Display, Tech Talk and BBQ Sunday Sept. 13th - MORNING DRIVE - We will stage at the Minden Park, which is at 6th Street and Mono.

    Thank you for your interest, and I hope that you can make it over! It should be fun getting a bunch of 02's together, and some nice mountain drives too.

    Mike, Glad to hear that you're interested in attending. I know of another 02 coming down from Reno. We also have one or two from Carson, and maybe one from Stagecoach....fun to see that there are so many 02's lurking nearby! Soon I'll have a detailed schedule out for the event.

    Steve, We're planning on getting together around 6 on Friday evening, to discuss Saturday's schedule, meet and greet, have some snacks/drinks etc. I'm sure we'll hang out for some time, so no worries if you can't make it by 6. Hope you can make it, and look forward to meeting you and checking out your car. Barry, I'm really sorry, but think we'd better keep the event to 1600's and 2002's. I'm just afraid that if we open the door to other models we may end up with more than I can handle, but thank you very much for your interest in the event.

    As of now I think we have about 8-10 cars. Some have said that they are planning on attending, but haven't received a commitment yet, and everyone that has done this sort of event has said that many will wait until very near the event to commit. I will be firming up the schedule for the event, and will send your way when it's ready. This is my first time organizing something like this, and just thought that it would be fun to get a bunch of 02's together.....and I think this area provides a great venue. Thanks for your interest, and hope to see you at the event!

  15. I'm installing new front grills on a 73, and am not sure of the best way to secure the black out covers on to the grills. I would really appreciate help with type of adhesive to use and technique, as I really don't want to mess this up. Thanks!
