    Vintage at Saratoga, NY


    Wonderful!! I am going to Vintage @ Saratoga 2019.
  2. Rock that GOLF! It probably needs a bit of everything, but it will be fun to get it to where you want it to be. Enjoy it!

    Always wanted an e28...

    Ed: great find. They're usually beaten to a pulp when I find them. I drove an automatic beater-loaner 535is years ago and it was FUN. I am sure that this one is gonna be fun too. Enjoy it!

    2002 Beauty Shots

    It was quite a nice day for a drive. So, I took our young exchange student, Eve from Germany, for her first ride in a 2002. She tried Skyline Chili for the first time on the drive and enjoyed it very much. This evening I made a batch of red beans & rice with cornbread which was likewise very popular with her. We surprised a guy driving a black E28. We honked and waved at each other enthusiastically.

    I have to come clean - we bought an E90 M3

    I test-drove one of these a few years ago at a BMWCCA gtg at the dealer. I rode with another guy and we took turns driving it. The other fellow was extremely eager for me to turn it over to him after I'd driven it. Then the way he drove it was downright scary. He must have watched those Fast & Furious movies. A fast car that will roar when pushed hard.

    #1507592, 1966 1600-2

    Sad in a way, but your fleet has GROWN over time... Does the new owner mind being mentioned? Details, please - what are the plans for this 1600?
  7. Ed: congrats on the progress that you and Barney are making with that beautiful coupe. Belated condolences to you regarding your father. My dad and his Golf 2002 in the 1970's hooked me on classic BMWs. I did NOT ENJOY working on cars with dad, but I sure as hell loved that 2002 of his. Anyhow, I am most eager to see your 2000CS coupe and Barney's tii at MidAmerica 02 Fest. Happy wrenching!

    1967 1600-2 Shell

    I loved that 1600-2 when it was still a Sahara beater. I had a blast driving it through Greene County with Karl Hendrickson chasing me in my '75 2002. My two-beer buzz led to a heavy foot and a lot of laughs that afternoon.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! Today, I went Christmas shopping with my daughter Veronica; a holiday tradition for us. Since there was no snow, slush or salt on the roads, we took the 2002. As y'all know, it has a large trunk that works very well for stashing holiday purchases. Lunch at Pies and Pints helped to keep us in good cheer. (Belgian ale helps too!)

    Winter Projects

    Your room will be ready for you when you get to Ohio in April!
  11. I have confirmed the date: January 19, 2019. Kreimer's Bier Haus, 6052 State Route 128, Cleves, OH, 45002. We will again be using their lower level party room and ordering from their menu, rather than having a buffet. Time: 6:30 - 10:30 PM. Please let me know if you are going to attend. I'd like to give Erin their banquet manager a decent headcount. Thanks! See you there!

    Originally sold in Birmingham, AL in 1975. Purchased in Athens, AL in June, 2003 by Jim Denker for $3500. By that time, I was likely the 4th of 5th owner. A father and then his son were the first two owners in the Birmingham area.
  13. I take it all in stride. Sometimes they think it's a Mercedes, sometimes they think it's just like their brother's slammed E30; it doesn't matter to me. It's all fun.
