    Massive 2002 Auction on Aug 4, 2018

    Thank you for your interest and your condolences. I’m working on it! The auction house has proven difficult to work with and has no idea how to follow through on the promised online auction, so I’m going to see if I can list some items on eBay. I’ll update this post as we figure out the details.

    Massive 2002 Auction on Aug 4, 2018

    Hi Steve! Thanks for the info regarding the 2002tii! My dad was lucky enough to get one of Pete’s perfectly finished tii’s in Inka Orange with cute round tail lights, and it is a thing of beauty. So much personality in such a gorgeous car. He was truly an artist. My dad is way more familiar with the years and models than myself or likely the auctioneer (he worked with Pete on many cars over the years), so I’ll have him look over the pictures and auction info and ensure that everything is accurate. Thank you you again for bringing this to my attention!

    I hope you do. I’d love to have his stuff in the hands of people who care. I’m his niece, and I’ll be there and happy to say hi if you make it!

    Thank you. He was wonderful and one of the only people I know who truly loved his job. We’re planning for online bidding prior to the 4th as well, if you’re interested. I’ll update this post with more information as the auctioneer provides it.

    Thank you. It’s been especially hard on my dad (Pete’s older brother). They were lifelong best friends, bonded over cars and sports, and got each other through everything. He’s been having trouble processing all of this because we never saw it coming. I’m just trying to help out wherever I can right now.

    RIP Pete Kell

    Auction link. Pete Kell was a gifted mechanic and passionate restorer of classic BMWs based in Pennsburg, PA. He recently died of a sudden heart attack, and our family is reeling. He left us with two partially restored 2002s (1972 and 1973), as well as a large quantity of 1970s BMW parts (motors, transmissions, suspension, body parts, hoods, window glass, interior parts, BMW wheels). His old shop is also for sale (Pennsburg, PA), along with a massive amount of quality shop equipment, a Kubota B20 tractor, and many non-2002 cars (a Chevy Rollback, two Dodge Rams, and a ton of Subaru’s). We will sell all of this and more by auction on August 4th. We hope it goes to people who love it as much as he did. More information here. Photos here.
