  1. I live in the Bay area, which means that two weekends ago was the highlight of my 2016 automotive schedule - Monterey car week. For the past three years I've gone to the historic races on Saturday and Sunday, but since this was BMW's 100th birthday I talked my dad into coming out and we added Friday's Legends of the Autobahn to the itinerary. Of course, I had kept this new car secret from my dad since purchase... I wanted to see the look on his face when I picked him up from the airport in this old thing. No photos this time, but all he could do was laugh and shake his head.
  2. With a top- and bottom-side inspection complete, I feel that I have a pretty good idea of what the car needs in the near- and long-terms. Long term: just about everything on the body could use some attention. It's at least 5 distinct shades of gold, not to mention primer and brown in the back. Medium term: suspension bushings are crusty but don't show excessive play, motor smokes on overrun. Short term, the list looked more like this: 1. Strong fuel vapor smell in the cabin 2. Shift linkage/bushings completely shot 3. Speedometer non-functional 4. Gas gauge non-funct
  3. What a fun day at Laguna! Walked around the paddocks and watched some of the races! So much car eye candy! So fun to see the races and see more friendly faces! ? Happy 100 Anniversary BMW! Thank you to Monterey BMW for allowing Tesoro to park on the lawn down at the Lakebed VIP parking ! ;-)
  4. Do you know the way to Monterey?? ? Got my registration packet with tickets to Legends and Laguna! ***Special parking at the infamous LAKEBED CORRAL! *** It's going to be a fun 2016!! Woo hoo!
  5. We ran the HMSA Spring event at Laguna Seca last weekend. I took my new M3 along with the might K2002. The Car had a new engine for this season. It was built by Ivey Engines in Portland. The Tinney engine we had in the car for the last 4 seasons was due for a refresh so it has been shipped back to Terry. The performance of the two engines seemed pretty similar. The only thing I noticed was the Ivey engine had a flatter torque curve, and a little bit wider power band. As this was my first outing with the M3 I took my time getting to know the car.
  6. I had been excited for this weekend ever since last years historics. I knew it was going to be big, but I had no idea it was going to be this big. My weekend began at 5:00 Friday morning, after a week of late nights drilling holes, mounting lights, and mainly scrubbing and vacuuming. My dad and I met up with 3 more 02s and a beautiful /6 cafe racer. We headed down 17 towards Highway 1, with some of our cars adding to the thick haze of fog coming off the ocean. Just before we got off at Hwy 68 we were passed by an e30 and then an e34 M5 Touring, a car I never seen before, I squealed inside a bi
  7. As reported in my first post, I intend to build my 1968 1600 into a full electric conversion while retaining the character of the car that we've all come to know and love. It's a great idea, and one that I owe much credit to my father for planting. My Dad has always been into British cars. He owned Triumphs, MG's, and even a XKE Jaguar when I was young. There were always projects in the garage and you always knew where to find Dad... Fast forward 20+ years, and he's still at it. This time, though, he decided he'd learn more about electric vehicle technology by converting a 197

    We will hold our second Neue Klasse and Kaffee at Laguna Seca on Saturday morning. It will be at the Festorics Coral at the Lakebed. I will post a more precise location once we park the cars. This will be a great way to get all of vintage people in one spot. Look for the red Touring with 2002FAQ license plate and we will be near by.
  9. We ran the HMSA Spring event at Laguna Seca last weekend. I took my new M3 along with the might K2002. The Car had a new engine for this season. It was built by Ivey Engines in Portland. The Tinney engine we had in the car for the last 4 seasons was due for a refresh so it has been shipped back to Terry. The performance of the two engines seemed pretty similar. The only thing I noticed was the Ivey engine had a flatter torque curve, and a little bit wider power band. As this was my first outing with the M3 I took my time getting to know the car. It ran well all weekend, and I finished 5th behind 3 "P" GT3 Cup cars (vintage?), and a 1990 Olds GTO car. My best lap was a 1:40. The Koepchen car ran in Group 4 along with about 16 assorted Alfas, Porsches, MGs, a 510 Datsun, and Dennis Racine's wickedly fast Mini. It started raining as we sat on pre-grid for our qualifying race on Saturday. I was gridded 4th behind the Mini, and I expected him to sail off into the distance on the wet track. Instead the Datsun got out to a lead. He was the only car on rain tires. The Mini slotted in 2nd, and I was 3rd. I chased the Mini hard and got a run on him a couple of times but he made the car pretty wide and kept me back. Finally on the last lap I got inside him coming off Turn 11, found traction there I hadn't expected and out dragged him to the finish. For our feature race on Sunday it was sunny and warm. I started outside the first row. The 510 and I had a drag race down to Turn 2 and I was able to out brake him and get along side him going through the turn. As we came off Turn 2 I got a bit of a jump and pulled into the lead. He chased me hard down to Turn 5 where he downshifted to 3rd but got 1st. OUCH! He slithered sideways a couple fo times and I opened a gap that I never gave up. Best lap for Sunday was a 1:49.7. The best I have ever done at Laguna Seca. I'll have the video up in a few days. It was a great weekend, and the K2002 really performed well. Thank you Jim & terry @ Racecraft!! View full article

  11. Good afternoon all! As I prepare the daily for the road trip of my life (so far) I wanted to throw my route out there for all to see to get some feedback on somethings that I may be missing along the way, to gather useful info relating to BMW shops or parts sources along the route and to see if there is anyone else there I might just cross paths with! Day one: San Antonio, Texas to San Antonio, New Mexico. This is a big drive day with an early start planned so I can catch lunch in Midland Texas after a visit to the Petroleum Museum which just happens to house a collection of very famous Chaparrel race cars (yes, the sucker car is there) (http://petroleummuseum.org/chaparral-gallery-exhibits/) Route chosen at this point is IH10W to SH83 to SH87 to SH158 to SH214 to SH380.....11 hours of total drive time! Day two: I'll be camping out somewhere around SA-NM and then waking up early to catch the sunrise at the VLA (http://www.vla.nrao.edu/) I've wanted to see this since I was a little lad reading Omni and scouring the book fair for science fiction futurist illustrations (Syd Mead is a particular favorite followed by Don Davis and Rick Guidice.) After the VLA I'll be traveling onto Arizona through the Apache-Sitgreaves national forest with a final destination of Arcosanti, Arizona to satisfy the architecture nerd in me. Route chosen at this point is SH60 to SH260 to IH17. Drive time: 6 hours+/- Day three: Leaving Arcosanti early AM and heading North through Flagstaff and onto the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Las Vegas. Route chosen at this point is IH17 to IH40 to SH64 to SH180 to SH64 to SH89 to SH89A to IH389 to IH59 to IH15 to SH169, 167 to IH93 whew! Drive time: 8 hours+/- Day Four: Las Vegas to Yosemite, Ca. Route: SH160 to SH95 to SH266 to SH6 and onto SH120 Total Drive time 6 hours+/- Day Five: Yosemite, CA to Pescadero, Ca This route could use a little work I think...I'm heading North after Monterey so I want to skip SF for now...been thinking SH120 to SH140 to 152/33 to SH156 to G11 to 129 to SH1. Total drive time 5.5 hours +/- Day six: Pescadero to Monterey! The route Back will be a northerly route with a few days in SF, then onto Lake Tahoe, then Salt Lake City, Denver and back home. I'm very open to suggestions on anything I must see that's potentially along the route from Tahoe to Denver. I'm a bit nervous honestly since some of my route is on a road less traveled so If there's anyone out there along this route that'd be willing to offer a hand should something go awry and be very appreciative, Shoot me your info and we can exchange contacts. Hope to see y'all out there on the road!
  12. Name: 2.5 Trans-Am Sedans @ The 2017 Spring Classic Category: Racing Date Added: 2017-06-06 Submitter: NeueKlasseGuy I recently raced my 1968 Trans-Am 2002 at the Spring Classic held at Laguna Seca. Imagine a field of 34 2.5 Trans-Am sedans reliving the glory days of the 2.5 Challenge. BMWs, Alfas, Datsuns, and even a token P car (they have a back seat, right?) It was a very fun weekend with very close racing and a lot of action. The 4th race was especially competitive! Sam Smith from R&T magazine was competing in a 2002. Troy Ermish in his 510 dominated as usual. Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoy, and leave a "LIKE," or a comment. 2.5 Trans-Am Sedans @ The 2017 Spring Classic
  13. Was going through my hard drive organizing when I found this. 2002s and a 3.0CS going down the corkscrew of Laguna Seca.during a parade lap. Time was October 1977 during the Golden Gate Chapter's hosting of the BMWCCA Oktoberfest that year. I shot this from the sunroof of a 320i. Image is a scan of an 8x10 color enlargement from a Kodachrome slide. Love the classic oil burning of the second 02. Enjoy! .
  14. I had been excited for this weekend ever since last years historics. I knew it was going to be big, but I had no idea it was going to be this big. My weekend began at 5:00 Friday morning, after a week of late nights drilling holes, mounting lights, and mainly scrubbing and vacuuming. My dad and I met up with 3 more 02s and a beautiful /6 cafe racer. We headed down 17 towards Highway 1, with some of our cars adding to the thick haze of fog coming off the ocean. Just before we got off at Hwy 68 we were passed by an e30 and then an e34 M5 Touring, a car I never seen before, I squealed inside a bit. “It’s gonna be a good day” I thought to myself. No one in our group had been to our first stop Legends of the Autobahn before and we got lost, which lead us to seeing a 3.0 CSL batmobile. We finally got to legends and I park my touring with the other 2002s, and right away I’m asked what it is. I went into this weekend thinking e30 M3s, and 3.0s were rare, but by the end of Friday they honestly had become commonplace. Which was fine, Legends offered up plenty of other beautiful cars for me to ogle. Elvis Presley's’ 507, a 700 coupe which had an air cooled motorcycle motor in it, a 1934 309, and my favorites, an e30 touring and an M1. When a 3 cylinder DKW 3=6 started up, it drew a crowd, he man that owned it also has a right hand drive Colorado Touring he brought to the Brisbane 02 show. Down the hill from the main show was the Motorrad and performance section. A few Z1s, quite a few Z8s, and even more M3s. We came across a whole lot of different older Alpinas, pretty sure at least one of every model made. The motorcycles were a sight to see, I believe an r32, BMWs first motorcycle, and a few insanely clean /5 and /6s, including a gold twin turbo, that the owners unfortunately would not start up. Once Legends ended we went to a BBQ to revel for the evening with other BMW enthusiast. A big shout out and thank you to Doug for hosting. Late in the evening we returned to our campsite above turn 10 at Laguna Seca. In the campsite we had an 1800 4 door, an e30 325ix, an e36 M3 LTW, 4 2002s, and 3 Tourings, and a big 2002 FAQ banner on the fence.Needless to say, our site was packed, and we constantly had people stopping and asking us about our cars. I’ve seen posts about how much love there is in the 02 community, and I’ve always seen that in our group. I have witnessed this first hand with building my own car which was a year of non-stop fun and great times, or helping Coastalcrush get his crusty Colorado 1600 on the road before the Brisbane show. Saturday morning our group drove our cars down to the BMW corral and had cars and coffee on the back of Dr Suave! We watched the morning races, my favorite being the 1973 to 1984 FIA, IMSA GT, GTX, AAGT, and GTU cup, just because of the amount of 3.0s and M1s. After that we got ready for the BMW parade lap, where I got to ride in Steve's all stock automatic touring. He showed the three of us all the proper racing lines to take around the track, which was really informative and interesting. When we came back in (after the parade lap) my dad and I spent a while walking around the paddock, where we saw Canepas crew readying his cars. We met an older gentleman with a Model T racecar and watched him oil up and prime the fuel pump on his race car. As we headed towards the main BMW tent I stopped and drooled over the silver M1 procar that had been out just eating up the track. The car had originally raced in Japan, hence the Japanese lettering all over, then was unseen for 25 years, until it was bought and restored to its original condition, and now races around the world in historic races. The BMW tent was impressive. It had all the race cars on the ground, you could get right up and stick your head in them, and then there were a few show cars behind glass barriers. A gorgeous 2002 turbo sat in front of the 2002 Homage car (the homage car brought up a bit of a debate in our group). At the other end sat 2 art cars, an M3 GT2 sat behind the well known number 93 3.0 CSL art car that raced in Le Mans in 1975, you could tell it was a special car with just one glance. By now it was time for the next 1973-84 race, so we went to turn 5 where we could get a good look at the cars as they came into the turn. It was quite the sight to see as Canepa passed people on that bit of straight away like they were standing still, the man knows how to drive. Later we walked through the shop tents and watched people test drive Land Rovers on their test course, some people really beat on them. We headed back up to the campsite, where the lighting got just right for a photoshoot (a true golden hour), which as we all know, 2002s are very photogenic. That night we sat around our fire pit and talked about the day and our cars until it got too cold and foggy to stay up . Sunday morning we packed up our cars with our camping gear, throwing as much as I could on the roof rack of the touring. Again we brought our cars down to the turn 5 corral and talked with passersby for a bit until the 1963-73 FIA race, when we all pressed ourselves to the fence and stared in awe as 3 2002s raced around, one being an Alpina TI. We found out there were spots left for the day’s parade lap, and we quickly registered a few of our cars. This was by far my favorite part of the whole weekend. When they say you can't see a thing coming over the corkscrew, they mean you really can't see anything. But there is nothing like coming over it, downshifting to 2nd, and flooring it out. I had a smile on for the whole lap, but that part made me laugh with pure joy. A track day is now very much in order! With our cars packed, my dad and I started our drive back home, sunburned, tired, and smiling from an event filled weekend. View full article
  15. We went to our first event of the year last weekend at Laguna Seca. It was the HMSA Spring Event. I drove the #34 Hyde Park 2002 that I recently purchased. Terry Forland drove its twin, the #35 2002. We raced in Group 3 with 27 other B sedans- lots of Datsuns, a few Alfas, and a slug of '02s. It was a great weekend.
