This is a late 1969 BMW 2002 that was originally titled as a 1970.  I bought the car in 1994.  In the spring of 1999 I decided to completely redo the car.  After a great deal of work the car is totally rust free and the following modifications were made.

Auto Cross:

I put the little monster to some use and auto crossed with the Ozark's Mountain Region SCCA chapter.  It was a lot of fun trying different adjustments on the car.  I was not not the fastest guy out there but I did enjoy working on my driving and I got a lot of compliments on the looks.  Albeit the competition was a little thin in FSP, I did manage to win the FSP class in 2004 (wow, 10 years ago).

Some say that the BMW 135i is in the same spirit as the original 2002.  They are very similar in concept to drive and the 135i has a familiar feel to it.  This 135i has the M-Sport package, DCT (dual clutch transmission) and the twin spool turbo.
