    2002 targa/cabrio

    the model 2002, not the year..

    sooo, the other night the wife says, "it would be really neat to have an old convertible. did they make a 2002 convertible?". gasping for breath, i say, "why yes dear, and here in this picture on the internet is a beautiful inka targa in japan for $19,500." and the reply, " that would be really fun! are there any around here?"

    any 2002 folks around here that might have more info on these unique cars?

    There were more 1600s produced as a full drop-top (vollcabriolet) - only about 200 real 2002 came this way (built in early 1971). It's not uncommon to find the 1600s with a 2-liter engine by now!
    More common was the 2002 targa, converted by Baur, and built 71-75. These, too, were few in number (~2300 total), and had the removable roof panel and soft fold-down rear window.
    All of these were for built for the Euro market, not offered here.
    A great place to look is in the cars for sale section at www.bmw2002faq.com

    John, are there any local 2002 events happening this year? My neighbor, a non-club member, wants to know.

    Mid America 02 Fest 2007
    April 27 & 28 2007 - Eureka Springs, Arkansas
    www.eurekasprings.org

    May 26th, 2007
    Westbend Vineyards, Lewisville, NC
    Vintage At The Vineyards. This is becoming a highly regarded event - fun, not a Q-tip concours, but there's always a few!

    A group usually gathers for the Import/Sport/Kit car weekend at Carlisle PA, although attendance seems to be diminishing. May 18-20 this year.
    Import Nationals

    '02 Fest East is usually the Sunday after Labor Day at Lime Rock Park CT. Again, this event seems to be in trouble (attendance-wise), and there was talk from some about trying to tie it together with the BMW Historic Races during the Labor Day weekend.

    We have a non-club-affiliated Mid-Atlantik '02 group, planning drives/events in the area. Have your neighbor drop me a note and we'll get him in the e-mail loop.

    Thanks John. He's not serious enough to consider Arkansas, North Carolina or Connecticut local. Maybe Carlisle. I'll tell him to contact you.
