    Dennis Simon did the murals for the 1996 Monterey Historics . I’m guessing $150k

    I have 2 sets of doors and it looks like one set of rear door panes already out of the doors ! The free pane passenger might have 2 light scratches .... hard to tell in the photos ! I’ll happily donate them . PM and I can try and FaceTime the panes for you . The other sets are in complete doors so I’d have to bring them in and disassemble them ....

    54 TiSA’s were imported to the USA via Hoffman Motor Company per BMW Classic .

    Thanks!! I'll look thru my TISA archives as I think I have a reprint via Arthur Porter from 20 years ago. Perhaps a printer can make a good looking booklet from the pdf Rick

    Maybe we can do a run of 10 reprints ?!

    Stephan: It is amazing that BMW Classic et al didn't think to get the registration number M-VK514 for their own use! How many TISA's does BMW Classic/AG have- I heard 2 ? I don't know the VIN's . I know there was one sold from their collection in 2011 (?) at a Bonham's Auction. I think I have a pretty complete list of VIN's now. I don't know the VIN of the TISA being restored at The Werk Shop currently.... Rick

    Is there a source even for a reprint? I have a photo copy only!

    Stephan: I love your album ! Did your car come with those exhaust headers?! How much restoration did you do of your car when you bought it. When was the photo taken where the rear wheel is failing?! I am trying to label and comment on my album photos to aide in the history of my car... I have great photos of the 559013 at Sebring Governor's Cup TransAM race in March of 1966 but no other historic photos ( yet). It was again at Sebring in 1967 ..... Rick

    Stephan : Here are the 6 pages that describe TISA 559181 as of the October 1996. When did you get your car? I don't know who the previous owner(s) were... If you have any photos of your car or other TISA's in Germany and paperwork you can share,I would love to start a complete archive. I think Tom Jones and I have the best documented USA race histories of TISA's!.

    Gruss Gott! I have a number of photos of 995181 and a 7 page written description of your car from October 21 , 1996. I don't remember the exact context in which I received the photos and letters as it has been so many years! I can scan everything for you. If you can share any current photos and what you are doing with car that would be fantastic. I would like to maintain a TISA registry of sorts respecting fellow owner's wishes. I personally like to see restoration and current photos of existing cars with VIN info.... I am vintage racing mine ... I have an aunt and cousin in Munich that I still visit.... Rick

    What is this speedometer?

    Euro 1800 TISA had that speedometer- given it is 6V and 1964 it might well have been in a TISA. Some the US imported TISA's (54 of 200 via Hoffmann Motors) had the same silver dial speedo but were120 mph. You wouldn't have a Tachometer?? Did you ever sell it? Rick

    That’s great ! I suspect they are pricey . I have a google plus album on my TISA Restoration plus photos of other TISA’s . Helpful to see other cars as there were some factory options and period modifications . Do you have drilled out hood and trunk frames ? I’m told this was only done on factory race cars but some owners DIY . My car has an enlarged gas tank ( though I now have a fuel cell for racing regulations) .,,Maybe you can share some pics . I like to post with a VIN - I think this makes it more transparent as to the car survivals tho some would say that when a VIN is missing that a recreation could be done . I’ll post a link or you can find it in google plus albums - “rickmeinig” Bill here it the link to my 995013 restoration (1998-2016 !). Please consider uploading some pics! https://photos.app.goo.gl/7bCpYQbqWtX6ugov6
