RonR's 1969 BMW 2002 - Schwarz Car





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.
