Does this count as Automobilia? I searched for these for ten years, issued by CA in 1970 when blue plates were introduced and now able to be reregistered as Year of Manufacture starting this year.

Yes, in California you can reregister plates up through 1980 only as long as they are clear meaning not registered already. So if car is a 1973 you have to use a 1970- 1980 blue plate.

Racers can get a 15% discount from the factory when buying the car.

Sweet, Chris. That's a nice find. I've been collecting these plates for a while too. I didn't think we'd be able to register them this soon. Nice surprise. My 1972 Coupe was originally registered in Los Angles with a plate that already was in the G's, so I'm not changing that, but all my other cars are 1970s as well and I am currently having them assigned. It was quite a chore to get the Hollywood DMV to understand the YOM rules, but with patience they finally and begrudgingly got there....

A letter from Romeo Ferraris to a customer who asked for the tuning options for the 02 tii.
Romeo Ferraris, a gentleman from Milano, was the major BMW race/street tuning specialist in north Italy from late 60s to early 80s.
Today he handbuild very special wristwatches and the the Tuning company, still on his name, is ran by his son and partners.

My E12 was given "Stradale" level motor work by them in the early 80s. High compression forged pistons, cam, etc. The car has a Ferraris strut brace also. Thank you Lorenzo for shedding some light on the company. There is a video somewhere about the watchmaking hobby of his.
