Mercer Island, Washington, United States



1969 BMW 2002ti vintage race car. Built and raced by well known German tuner Holger Tapp - aka Turbo Tapp and actively raced in Northern Europe and the USA in the 1970's and 1980's. Stickers on the car include Mantorp, Sweden; NHRA World Finals in Ontario, CA - 1978 - 1981; and Sko-Uno festival Mantorp Sweden. I have not done a tear-down and do not know precise displacement of the engine. But does have KKK 3LD turbo and custom manifold blowing through twin Weber DCOE. Roll bar; 'drag-water' and pump for burnout; interior adjustable boost & brake bias; fiberglass hood and truck.

I think the photos serve to illustrate the condition but to be clear, body has rust in the rocker panels and less severe rust elsewhere. Some filler in the drivers door and rear 1/4 panel. Windshield has some bubbling. This is a race-car in need of complete restoration to bring back to it's former glory. Sold on a bill of sale only. Happy to work with your shipper but must have this moved by September 15th.

Researchers halfway to cutting carbon fiber costs by 90%

Wed, 15 Oct 2014

Carbon fiber has been utilized for decades to build racecars, as a means to cut weight while maintaining strength. But until recently, the space-age material has been largely absent from the street on anything but supercars because of the expense to use it. Recently, BMW signaled a major shift in that trend when it starting using carbon fiber reinforced plastic panels on the i3 and i8. This relatively small scale start might be just the beginning; the German company believes that a breakthrough to inexpensively manufacture the lightweight stuff is just on the horizon.
MAI Carbon Cluster Management GmbH counts BMW, Audi, Airbus, the German government and many other organizations as supporters, and it's researching how to make carbon fiber cheaper to produce, according to Automotive News Europe. The company thinks it can reduce costs by 90 percent in the near future. "We've certainly reached a halfway point on our cost-cutting target for suitable carbon-fiber parts," said project head Klaus Drechsler to Automotive News Europe.
Unfortunately, it isn't entirely clear just what MAI Carbon is doing to make such a huge leap possible. However, a recent post on the company's website talks about a new form a carbon fiber using a thermoplastic matrix that could be cured in less than three minutes. That's compared to about 90 minutes in the traditional process with an autoclave.

Consumer Reports says these are the worst new cars of 2014

Thu, 27 Feb 2014

Consumer Reports has announced its annual list of worst vehicles, a cringe-inducing contrast to its list of top vehicles. Ignominiously leading the way in 2014 is Chrysler, which has a staggering seven models listed.
Jeep nearly sweeps the small SUV segment by itself, with its Compass, Patriot and 2.4-liter version of the new Cherokee, while the only midsize sedans listed by CR were the Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger. The new Dodge Dart and the Dodge Journey round out CR's condemnation of Chrysler.
Ford is taking heat as well, with the Taurus, Edge and their counterparts from Lincoln all listed as the worst vehicles in their respective segments. Toyota doesn't fare much better, with its Lexus IS, Scion iQ and tC also making the list.
