  1. I had the pleasure of designing the route again for the annual Bay Area 02 group's "Not the 49 Mile Scenic Drive." The name comes from a contrarian's opinion of San Francisco's 49 Mile Scenic Drive, a route which zig-zags across the city connecting all the famous touristy crap. As a native San Franciscan, I am in love with the ridiculousness that is the hilly streets and spiraling roads of the city. This year I was able to find what might be the only dirt road in San Francisco. Edgehill road is on top of one of the many hills of San Francisco. A small one-lane street circles the peak, one side of which is a dirt road, although some people thought it may have just been a paved road that hadn't been maintained in 50 years. Also important to me is finding the many roads which give amazing view of the city that not many know about or typically get to experience. I drove ahead and tried to make some nice pictures of people in their '02s with the nice backdrop. This year I incorporated the Presidio which such an amazing place. So many hidden gems this this neighborhood of Infantry Terrace. The houses are all rentals because it is federal land, but the buildings are terrifically preserved and act as such a time warp when you drive through. But of course it can't be a 2002 drive without a few hiccups. One 2002 wouldn't start and another lost its break caliber bolts on one wheel. Thankfully both were able to head home after the drive. We ended the drive on Treasure Island again this year. TI works perfectly as it is technically part of the city of SF (rally rules are we cannot leave the city) and island provides space for parking 20-30 cars at a local pizza place.
  2. Hey there Bay Area 02ers — I finally sourced all the necessary parts needed to put my '74 back together after a collision last year. I really don't want to take it to a body shop for pre-paint work like this because I simply won't learn anything. I crashed it, and I need to learn how to fix it… 1. Things I have: -Solid donor hood -Great drivers side fender -Pretty decent nose clip -Moderate welding skills -Basic understanding of electrical wiring -Basic tools -Motivation -Patient girlfriend allowing me to store first three items in living room (Note: this part might move to section 2 very soon) 2. Things I don't have: -Experience with this particular job -Workspace -Local friends with experience and a workspace. I am totally willing to pay for some help and definitely want to be involved to help as much as I can. Swap and Show is coming up and the car will be there, maybe someone would be willing to take a look at the damage and see if it is something that you'd be interested in lending a hand with? I am located in Berkeley. As always, appreciate the help and insight!
  3. Hi Everyone-- Thank you for participating in Not the 49-Mile Drive this year. I had fun and from your comments, you did too! Please add your photos to the Not the 49-Mile Drive 2018 album in the image gallery to help us remember the fun. Here are the route instructions, as you received at Ocean Beach and also the photo key so you can verify the proper order of when you saw these images. While some locations are straightforward a few are discrete. Photo-2 is at the corner of 30th and Cabrillo as you turn onto Cabrillo. Photo-3 is at the Legion of Honor. Photo-7 is at Geary and Polk. Photo-8 is on 16th St. just before Van Ness. Photo-9 is on the Dandelion Chocolate building on 16th at Harrison. Photo-10 is at the corner of Chanel and El Dorado. All of us should give Rallymeister Pete Petras a thank you! for a great rally! NT49MD-18 FINAL route & photos 181201.doc NT49MD-18 FINAL photo KEY 181201.pdf
  4. Now re-opened-- MotorsportReg "registration" page that allows you to buy a T-shirt from this year's rally. See original page at [Order T-shirt for NT49MD-18 at MotorsportReg] and note final instructions at bottom. We will close this final shirt purchase at end-of-day Saturday, 15 December 2018. Thank you everyone, especially Rallymeister Pete Petras for a fun event!
  5. Event Title: Swap & Show-2020 completely cancelled Event Location: Event Author: layers Event Date: 09/12/2020 12:00 AM BayArea 02 Swap & Show is completely cancelled for 2020-- see notes below. As before, the address is 500 Sierra Point Parkway, along the Bay on the North side of Sierra Point. Preregister on Motorsportreg (see link below). Preregistration is $25 while the on-site fee on 2 May will be $30. Kile Brekke continues to show his artistic flare with the graphics and has again added his art for our T-shirts and printed materials; we expect the shirts, posters and cards to be popular once again! Please preregister early to help us plan. Preregistration will open on 1 March at [Preregistration for Swap & Show-2020 on MotorsportREG]. We expect it to end on 26 April 2020, so do NOT plan on a last-minute signup (we need a few days to get stuff ready...). Note— Swap & Show visitors are welcome! There is no fee for entry if you do not show your car or swap parts. However, we strongly encourage anyone with a BMW of our vintage to bring your car to display, no matter how mundane your daily driver (dirt, rust and all, which may be surprisingly photogenic) or how Instagram-friendly your restoration. There is no judging your car so there will be no points for extra dirt, missing dirt, artistic (!?) rust or matching luggage. We smile at all BMW's and photographs or videos are welcome (but NO drones over cars)! **************************************************************** For any of you who are preregistered you can request a refund by sending an e-mail request to [info@bayarea02.com]. Like so many other events, Swap & Show-2020 was postponed until 12 September. Although in May and June the pandemic seemed to be waning, by mid July it's rising again and the county and state governments give no hint of allowing even outdoor semi-large events. Please mark your calendars for 12 December for another Not the 49-mile Drive (perhaps social distanced but food is a question mark right now) and 1 May 2021 for the next Swap & Show at the Brisbane Marina. Larry Swap & Show-2020 completely cancelled
  6. Event Title: Not The 49-Mile Drive 2018 Event Author: layers Event Date: 12/08/2018 09:00 AM NT49MD-2018— Not the 49 Mile Drive , Saturday 8 December, 2018 Not the 49 Mile Drive, the BayArea 02 annual rally, arrives in San Francisco again on December 8 (2nd Saturday in December). As before, we'll meet at OceanBeach between 9 and 9:30 AM. Many of you may recall that we assemble across The Great Highway from Beach Chalet on the West end of Golden GatePark. Fulton St. is the cross street and turning left from Fulton St. onto Great Highway, the entrance to the OceanBeach parking lot is immediately from the extreme right lane. Following our driver's meeting (navigators and family welcome), all cars will be off by 10:00 AM. After discovering some major, minor and potentially weird roads around San Francisco (we never leave The City) we will meet again for lunch at a restaurant and review the photos in the handout that each navigator will have numbered during the rally in the order of observation. Rallymeister Pete Petras is working hard to create our rally route. He works in The City so he has many fun and delightful highways, byways and alleys readily at hand to help us find the hidden gems, gorgeous views and awkward avenues that make San Francisco such an intriguing adventure for all of us living nearby. Join us for the fun rally, see your friends, learn and enjoy some of San Francisco’s road history and quirks, and, of course, share your BMW tales. We recommend driving with a navigator (Wells Fargo would call the navigator someone riding "shotgun"), so the driver can drive and the crew can give turn instructions and watch for the rally photos to number in viewing order. Solo drivers are also welcome, although there could be a navigator or two available before drivers get underway. Kids are always welcome to ride along, provide keen eyes and share lunch!

  7. Hello Bay Area 02'ers, I'm a complete beginner to 02's and could use help adjusting valves on my 75 02. I'm specifically having trouble locating the crankshaft nut/pulley to turn the engine. I'm also not sure how to tell if my rocker is positioned at TDC to properly adjust the valves (this is my first time). I'm a quick learner if I can see how it's done first. I've search the web for videos of someone performing a valve job on an 02, and nothing's come up. I've read also all posts dedicated to valve adjustments here on bmw2002faq, but would still like to see the process in person, if possible. If anyone is willing to help, I would be forever grateful. Please let me know! Best, Christian chjeria@gmail.com
  8. Where to begin? I like cars a lot. I design them as my occupation, and I work on and drive them as my hobby. I'm slowly building my skill set with mini-projects. My dad likes cars too, and though he's never been interested in the mechanical side of them, he brought me into his BMW passion from an early age. Once upon a time, before us kids, he had a 2002 that he loved. A few years ago, when I decided to buy a running project car to start getting my hands dirty, the 02 was an obvious starting point. Reasonable prices for cars and parts; knowledgeable and passionate fan base; antique enough to be simple to work on but new enough to drive like a modern car. Without knowing exactly what I was doing, I watched the market for a few months before falling for a '71 Chamonix I found in Los Angeles. The longer version of the story is here, but my girlfriend and I flew down from San Francisco, bought the car, and drove it back up PCH to the city, where I was living. From the start, the car was an adventure. So much fun to drive, and with so much charm. It was a great trip - it had a little bit of everything. We bombed down Mulholland and saw Jay Leno; stayed overnight in Morro Bay where the seals barked all night; got a push-start from a German family on vacation when the battery died ("Ve had to help, it iz a German car."). I also learned what that red charging light means, as the alternator died early in the journey and the car threw in the towel 5 short miles from home. The car was pretty solid from the start - not perfect, but great driver quality - and after replacing the alternator I moved on to other small projects on the brakes, stereo, and a general tune-up. My girlfriend loved the car, and we participated in the great Bay Area 02 community events, the highlights being the "Not the 49-mile drive," Swap and Show at the Brisbane Marina, and some CCA events (Silver Rabbit Mystery Tour). While I had roundie I decided I wanted something "with horsepower," and bought my second BMW - a 2011 E90 M3. Manual transmission, cloth interior, no iDrive, no sunroof, competition package. This was a strange and scary car. It was far more expensive than anything I'd bought before. It had a serious motor, serious brakes, and serious consequences if you tried to tap its performance on public roads. Third gear topped out at 105 MPH; it was a time bomb either for my safety, my wallet, or my license. I learned an important lesson with that car: I am the type of person who greatly prefers a "slow car fast" that can be wound out on the back roads and deliver fun at or around the speed limit. After about 6 months I replaced that car with a 1988 M3. This was a good combination of cars. However, it was not to last. You see, early in my ownership of Roundie an idea had come in to my head, an idea that made so much sense that it could not be ignored. My dad would be turning 60 in April of 2015. He had visited and driven Roundie and enjoyed himself, reminiscing about his old car and talking about finding a car of his own. I knew that my father was too practical to actually go through with buying something, so I made the decision: I would surprise my dad with the car for his birthday. There were some tricky logistics for shipping a car cross-country to Atlanta and making sure he wouldn't find out, but the pieces fell into place and he had no idea what was coming. The moment of surprise/total confusion: First drive, with his original CCA badge from his old 02 on the grille: Surprise! It was a big gift, but without getting too sappy I'll say that I owe my dad more than I could ever repay for all he's given me through the years. This was the end of my time with the car, which made me sad, but it was the start of my dad's time with the car. Roundie gets to live in a garage now, running around north Georgia on the weekends and making my dad smile. I'm also fortunate enough to get to revisit my old friend every time I go home to see my folks. This was a long entry, but it is just the start. With my 2002 gone I focused time and energy on the M3, but I kept finding myself on Craigslist scouring for the right car to get back into the round-tail light game. And about a week ago, you could say that I struck gold...
  9. NT49MD-20 Pete route & photos checked 201206.pdf Welcome to NT49MD-20 announcements and drivers protocol 201207.doc Not the 49 Mile Drive, BayArea 02's annual rally, comes to San Francisco again on December 12 (2nd Saturday in December). At about 9:30 A.M. we will meet at a new location: in The Presidio across the street from the Officer’s Club (50 Moraga Ave ., the Moraga Parking Lot). From here you can start route instructions and driving protocol you downloaded and can purchase a NT40MD-20 T-shirt or a BayArea 02 mask. Rather than a driver's meeting please download the driving protocol sheet; all cars will be off by 10:00 AM. After encountering some major, minor and probably weird roads and alleys around San Francisco (we never leave The City) we will meet again in a parking lot to review the photos in the handout that each navigator will have numbered during the rally in the order of observation. Note: in deference to the pandemic, this year does NOT include lunch! Pandemic rules: if anyone is at all sick, please do NOT come! Wear your mask at all times when outside; social distance at least 6Ft.; clean your hands often. Please be careful— we do NOT want any spread of the corona virus from or to anyone! Rallymeister Pete Petras has our rally route ready for your download. He works in The City so he can easily encounter the fun and delightful highways, byways and avenues that help us discover hidden gems, gorgeous views and surprising streets that make San Francisco such a unique adventure for all of us living in the Bay Area. Join us for the fun rally, wave at your friends from a social distance and learn and enjoy some of San Francisco’s road history and quirks. We recommend driving with a navigator from your family, so the driver can drive and the crew can give turn instructions and watch for the rally photo locations to number in viewing order. Solo drivers are also welcome. Kids are always welcome to ride along and provide keen eyes! Be sure to highlight 12 December on your calendar for the NT49MD-2020 rally! Note: You can see a few photos from NT49MD-2019 at [https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/253416-nt49md-2019%E2%80%94-not-the-49-mile-drive-saturday-14-december-20/].

I added the files for Route Instructions and Driver's Protocol-- PLEASE download these files and print them for your reference on 12 December or save them on your portable computer to read during the rally. The Driver's Protocol is both Welcome to NT49MD-20 and instructions we would normally have in a Driver's Meeting which is cancelled due to gathering prohibition. There are a few porta-pottys available near the Moraga Ave parking lot where we start (actually, pottys are at Sheridan & Arguello), but the normal restrooms are closed at the Presidio Visitor's Center due to construction. Other restrooms are available at Chrissy Field or eventually in Golden Gate Park (see route instructions). I do have some T-shirts and face masks available for purchase: $10 per shirt and & $5 per mask, cash or check. Since we are not "gathering", sales will be one purchaser at a time. Please realize that with just 50 shirts ordered, sizes are first-come, first-served. Remember, this is a car rally, not a prohibited "gathering", so please be sure to have fun but maintain safety from the Pandemic! NT49MD-20 Pete route & photo KEY checked 201206.pdf
  10. On Saturday the Bay Area 2002 hosted the 2015 Not the 49 Mile Scenic Drive. We had an excellent showing of eclectic people and cars. Everything from beautiful originals to a resto-mod square tail with motorcycle carbs. Larry Ayers organized the drive through the city and for the past few years I have had the privilege of designing the route. The point of the drive is to experience a part of San Francisco you normally wouldn't see, while hanging out with other 2002 owners from all over the Bay Area. If you'd like to do the rally yourself, feel free to download the directions and photokey below: Photo Key: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B61LEGUxfxjXUXFvZ0o0NEFPbFE/view?usp=sharing Directions: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B61LEGUxfxjXU2NCQTgtM0NOUGs/view?usp=sharing Lots of photos below, beginning with the pre-rally park ferme and ending with pictures I took along the route. Enjoy!
