Hi, I'm Craig from Omaha - BMW CCA member #4264. I bought my Atlantikblau '71 2002 new and am still driving it (albeit on an occasional basis) 37 years latter. The 2002 now has 262,000 miles. It had a complete engine overhaul plus an E21 5-speed transplant in the year 2003. I've taken the 2002 to 5 'CCA O'Fests and several 2002 and vintage & classic BMW events. My wife Christine and I also own an Alpine White '98 323iC convertible that I bought in Ft. Meyers, Florida two years ago. The cabrio also has a 5-speed transmission. I am an active member of the Missouri Valley Chapter and have previously been a member of Badger Bimmers, Bayou, and Buckeye Chapters. I'm also a fluent German speaker and wrote a couple of Roundel columns from Erlangen, Germany and Vienna, Austria during the 1980's.
