SNAPP has arrived!!


A beautiful example of German engineering- a 1971 Colorado Orange BMW 2002. Unpretentious class, exuberant style, zippy performance, nimble handling, easy-to-work on... it's got it all! I've already driven it from Portland out to the Columbia Gorge for a hike with Taylor Davis up to Triple Falls. It drove really well at 70mph! Her nickname has been Mango in the past and more recently, "SNAPP", which is what is on the tag now.

I've learned that I have to use the English words for car parts, like bonnet (hood), boot (trunk), and indicators (turn signals).

I love the nicknames for the 02's, the "Whispering Bomb." True, true.

For more information on the 2002, I recommend the UK BMW 2002 website.

Yes, I'm still going to commute by bike to work. But, there are those few occasional days each month that I need to drive to work or church myself. We're planning on fully restoring it once I'm out of residency and fellowship.
