  1. Welcome Charlie. Glad that you came to your senses and bought a 2002! That one looks very nice. This year is a bust, but get your 02 road trip ready for next year: MidAmerica 02 Fest, The Vintage, Saratoga Springs, RGB drives, BMWCCA events.... Hope to meet you soon and have you at RGB get togethers...
  2. Rare vintage BMW colors appeal to me as well.... but it’s your car, your dreams...
  3. Wow, I approve heartily. I will have to check out Midnight Motorsport when I come to Seattle to visit my niece next year! Beautiful 02! Well done.
  4. This part is from a 1987 Zinnoberrot eta E30 that I no longer own. I used a spare passenger seat to repair the driver's seat. I am left with just the seat back. So, it is black, vinyl and it is from a comfort seat. No rips, no tears, no stains. Clean, dry, no odor. I don't need it. I found the black comfort seat headrest that goes with the seat, too. Flexible as to price.
  5. Very nice... If I didn’t have mine already, I would be looking seriously at your 02, Tom! GLWS!
  6. My 73 2002 was named Stella when I bought..... her. I renamed it...… Franz. Gender fluid? Regardless, I liked the story of WWII Luftwaffe pilot, Franz Stigler. He was a young man who had thought of going into the priesthood before the war. During the war, he became a top pilot and Luftwaffe officer. On a day when he had already shot down two B17s, he came upon a B17 that just wouldn't go down, despite the horrendous damage it had suffered. He pulled along the right side of the bomber in his ME109 to look closer at this riddled, smoking wreck that was still aloft. Franz then moved over to the left hand side of the bomber and made direct eye contact with the pilot, Charlie Brown (!!), and lost all interest in finishing off this pathetic plane full of Americans, some dead or dying. So, against orders and at the risk of facing a firing squad if caught, Franz escorted the B17 to the northern coast with hopes that the crew would make it to Sweden which was much closer than England. The bomber instead pressed on for Its base in England. Years later, both Franz and Charlie wondered about their adversary in that struggle and what might have become of the other guy. Somehow, they found each other, exchanged letters, phone calls and eventually visits. They became closer than most brothers until they died of old age issues. There is a fascinating book called: “A Higher Call” that I read about this encounter and moving friendship between Franz and Charlie. Anyhow, I have named my BMWs male names. I suppose that I could decide on a feminine name if the mood struck me. I'd certainly name a Miata a female name and ditto with the neo VW Beetle, but for me, it's a gray area at best! P.S. Dieter was named for the Mike Meyers character featured on 'Sprockets'. (SNL) Konrad was named for Konrad Adenauer the postwar German leader. My 2000 328ci was named Werner because I liked the sound of it. There was a guy on my swim team long ago named Werner Jessen. People always mispronounced his full name. His uber-German dad would correct them: "It's VAIRNER YESSSEN!" (phonetically there!)
  7. That is a sad 02. Just give it away to someone who might find something useful out of what’s left of it! Silly ad!!
  8. In Ohio, only one historic plate was required even before this change was put through.
  9. I don't think that I will be using this, so here goes: but I am not sure on the price, actually. Useful if you want to attach the original air cleaner can and snorkel to you Weber carb. PayPal: [email protected] Thanks! Jim
  10. Good luck. Best wishes for happy times in California!
  11. THANKS to all of you who purchased items and cleared out some clutter in the workshop. Mary (the boss!) thanks you too. Shipping via UPS will be slow. Please be patient with me. If you have any issues, let me know. Thanks again....
  12. Rich: that sounds okay to me. Send me your address. I will send the whole cluster to you. PayPal: [email protected] Jim Denker Kettering, OH 45420

  14. Brit, I assume that the spare tire well will fit any 2002 or 1600, except for the 2002 turbo edition. Jim
