320i, selling the 2002 with 70k
miles and only losing $1,000 in
depreciation. I purchased a 1967
1600-2 from a friend. He hadn't
taken care of it, so at 70k miles the
engine was giving up. If you don't
change the oil the engine will wear
out. I rebuilt the 1600-2 and took it
to a few HPDEs in those days
including the O'fest in 1976 put on
by the NCC. I eventually sold the
1600-2 and years later it showed up
at Coupe King in Los Angeles after
going through a couple of owners.
Coupe King does restorations and
ran down the previous owners, so I
was contacted. I eventually started
an involvement with M cars and
purchased a new E30 M3 in 1988.
I kept the E30 until 2000 when I
sold it and purchased an E46 328i
coupe. I thought I could resist the
E46 M3, but couldn't and sold the
328i to buy an E46 M3 in 2002.
After the invitation to the M3
Experience at the Nürburgring in
2007, I purchased an E92 M3 in
2008. In 2016 I ordered an F82 M4
Competition Package following
multiple trips to ///M Club Days
and the Performance Center West
in Thermal, CA. In the mix there is

Steve: Grand Prix has always been
special. I saw it in a theater when it
first came out and I have my own
copy now. More recently, Ford v
Ferrari is a very well-done movie
covering a special time in motorsports history and doing it very
well. In the BMW world, Stereoscreen has a couple of very well
done documentaries of BMWs
in racing. 24 Hours - One Team.
One Target, Adrenalin: The BMW
Touring Car Story, and No Limits
all are on Vimeo and can be rented
or purchased.

also an X5 (2004), an X6 (2011),
and an X6M (2017). I recently
traded the F82 M4 for an M4 GTS,
taking advantage of the opportunity
to acquire a special BMW.
Here are the BMWs I've owned listed
by production year:
1967 1600-2
1972 2002
1977 320i
1988 M3

dB: What else would you like to
convey to our readers?
Steve: I've certainly gotten tremendous enjoyment from the programs
supported by NCC. I'd like to
recommend that chapter members
try out the activities, whether social
or competitive. You are bound to
make some friends and find great
events to enjoy. Something is there
to suit everyone.

dB: What is your favorite movie in
the car, car-chase, heist or racingrelated genre?
