Well . . . Hello everyone, I'm JB and an "02-aholic". I never thought I could admit it, but I've been smitten. I remember seeing my 1st '02 while in high school and wanted one every since. When I finally had a chance to get my first one, I jumped at it without hesitation, sight unseen, only the promise of a decent car. Luckily it was just that. Then came another. A '71 touring as it were. Although I won't have time to work on this car for who knows how long, I bought it anyway cause I don't know when I'll be able to see one for sale again (and they look just soooo neat!). The 1st 02 is gutted in preparation for a total sprayover. Then comes the meticulous fitting of everything back on to the naked body. With any luck, I may be able to start it up again next year. The poor touring is in desperate need of TLC though all I can do is take it around the block once a week. Despite all this, I'm currently salivating on a '72 tii (yep, another roundie). Why???

The garage is full of disassembled parts from the '73 roundie, with only the stripped carcass outside under a cover. The touring is also in the driveway under a cover. The E90's in the driveway and the X3 is on the street. Time to knock down the block wall to pour a driveway down the side of the house and make a slab in the back to rest the 'old folk'. The Tii would then fit very nicely in the group . . . . No, wait, I'm here in '02-anonymous . . . someone help me please!

It is hopeless, just get the Touring fixed and on the road....it really is the "coolest" driving machine. Come see us at Bimmerfest..

You think you have issues? I'm "unemployed" now... ok, in between jobs. And I was playing around with my babes at my apt build this afternoon and decided to block the road for a little bit...



Then there's the question of what about all these rims for all those cars I don't have?



(The Alpina Dynamics are most definately NOT for sale.)

Nice wheels! What you want for the set on the far right? DOH! (I did it again!)

But seriously, I could use those.

Can't make bimmerfest this year cause I'll be out of town next week :-(

Maybe West Fest (whenever that is).

I have got the sickness too...I blame it on my father who bought me my first car when I turned 16

it was an 82 633csi that did not run, he said I had to fix it if I wanted a car to drive...so we did!! Once that was running another one popped up in our garage, those 2 are gone, now I have an 85 635csi and an 86 535i


HELP!

I keep seeing all of these " '72 2002 B6's" (Forgive me, I just made that up) and I'm constantly wondering to myself... which is the model year? The '72? Or the 2002? Only just seconds ago did I realize that the four digit numbers were representing a model of a car, and not the model year. Oh, the joys of being a baby in a grown up, and mature (usually) audience.

Mein Auto: 1993 M5
I think I'm going into the deep end.....

Well, I've owned a beautiful and low mileage (<100K) 93 M5 for the past two years. It is an amazing car and one that I'll keep forever. However, I'm now finding myself drawn to even older BMW's. Specifically, I'm seriosly considering purchasing a 74 2002 Tii (gulf yellow). Not sure I'll get buy in from the spouse....but if I do....am I crazy? Might I find myself still yearning for other cool cars? Might need something from 80's?

Kevin

If it is this one, or one as nice as this one from the BMWCCA Concours this weekend, you can do no wrong. I know this car and it is a beauty. Warning.....they are a "sickness" that has no cure.




couple more pics from Carmel Concours...





Good luck,
