    BMW 1600 - 1968

    That should find a new home very easily. I hope that the new owner will keep it mostly stock due to its rarity.

    A reintroduction of sorts

    You can park it in the garage and ignore it for a long while or you can sell your 02, but you'll be BACK. Wilkommen!
  3. Guys: the Denker-McCarty B&B will be available to fellow 02 travelers next April.....

    American Graffiti-2002 connection

    When I watched it, I managed to have nostalgia for a time when I was just three years old. I definitely remembered the look and feel of that era through my little person's view of the world. Universal Studios was reluctant to release the film. They didn't know what to do with it. (!) The budget was held to $770,000. It has returned more than $150 million. Many of the crew worked for free and for film credits at the end of the movie. Cars used in the filming could be had for as little as $25/day. Filming was done very quickly in Petaluma, Modesto and other sites throughout California.

    Well this sucks

    Perhaps you could get some of the other drivers to make statements as to the conditions at the surprise! construction site. That would certainly help with your insurance claim. (I think!)

    Newbie Intro

    It would be a quick flip, Mike.

    Newbie Intro

    A fair number of us have urged Mike Self to fly out to California, buy a '76 2002, drive it back to Ohio, have some fun driving it for a while and then with some relatively easy cleaning and refurbishing, sell the 02 for a nice little profit. It would make for a good story, right? The 2002's in the Midwest offered for sale tend to have problematic rust/bodywork issues....

    File that photo under: "nobody's perfect." I famously had an embarrassing moment with my 2002! (In my case, a John Deere tractor was absolutely essential toward extricating my 2002 from a mucky cow pasture!)

    Great photos, guys!
  13. A date has been set! We will be returning to Sabbath Song Farm in Brooksville, KY on Friday, September 21st. We will have a two-night stay at the lovely B&B owned and operated our wonderful friends, Wes and Carolyn Boatman. We will meet up on Friday afternoon at our customary gas station in Wilder, KY for a brisk drive to the farm. The featured Jason-led drive will take place on Saturday the 22nd. As always, this event will feature fantastic back roads driving, great food, adult beverages, laughter by the fire and maybe some expensive bourbon uncorked throughout my trunk once again! BTW, many of us who are heading north on Sunday like to take the ferry across the Ohio River so that we can drive the back roads on our way home. So, fill up the gas tank, check the tires, top off the oil, clean the windshield, tighten some nuts and bolts and plan to be there!

    2002 ancient history pictures

    A very dapper dude with Dad's new 2002 on Sunday after church. (Madeira, Ohio - probably March, 1973)
  15. Guys: I am planning on making a weekend trip to the Lane Motor Museum in Nashville. It features a very large collection of microcars and other automotive oddities. I enjoyed seeing the museum in 2006 with my son, Alec. I'd like to share that experience with you all. I'd like to leave Dayton on Friday, (Sept. 7th) stay Friday and Saturday nights (Sept. 8th) in Nashville and return Sunday morning.(Sept. 9th) If you want to join me, let me know either here or on my Facebook updates regarding this road trip.
