    After dealing with the failed clutch master, the 2800 was loosing power under load on Saturday and I had no time to investigate. I left Monday morning at 5:30 and made it to Paso Robles. I had a hunch it was the points so I opened the Dizzy and confirmed my suspicion. The red screwdriver and feeler gauge were used to open the points gap, even though the feeler is .020 and I needed .015, I just needed it to be close. I started her up and she instantly wanted to rev, success! I kept it to 70mph on the way home and got 22mpg. On the way up at 75-80mph I got 20mpg, impressive and unexpected from the ZF 4 speed.

    Yeah, Barry -- Mike paid me to park next to him so his car would look better in comparison.

    I thought I was going to have the triple weber category all to myself, and then Carl showed up!

    Great pics, Andrew. Looks greener, and a lot less crowded, than last year.

    Next time, now I know what car is yours. Nice..... are the rear tires stretched a bit? I see it in the picture and thought I noticed that in person.

    Great to hear it made it back. My valve guides are starting to go. Burned about 1-1/2 quarts in 851 miles. Rear of car has quite a bit of exhaust oil (bumper, trunk, etc.) and my poor wife couldn't figure out why her windshield was so smudged when she tried to clean it at the gas station. She was behind me the whole way back. I owe her a detail I guess.

    I've known about it for a while but the trip put it over the top. Sustained speeds over 80, occasionally 100mph+. What is it with college aged girls cutting in front of you with one foot distance on the freeway between me them and the car in front of them? I wanted to strangle her.... Anyhow...... I love the 4 sp. 3700RPM doing 75-80, those motors seem to love that all day long. Love it on the hills and mountains. I don't see the need for a 5 sp. And I'm not a big dog-leg fan either with the different gearing. But new clutch needed soon and will replace throw out bearing same time I guess. Anyone have any recommendations on clutches other than stock? Like in between a stock feel and racing? Heavy duty but not too heavy....LOL...

    Glad you made it up and back Chris without a tow, that is BMW for you......

    Stick with the stock clutch, and do the rear main seal on the engine while you are in there.

    I didn't realize this was you. I was camped near the gate by the permanent bathrooms with the truck bed tent. You drove by several times along with the white Bavaria. We admired your car. :)

    Dan can you repost the pic? I can't see it. Not sure if you are referring to me or not.

    Yeah there's a bit of a stretch on the rear tires. No more that on the old Csl race cars

    Cool, nice shot. SoCal Vintage is fun, look forward to meeting you. Can't believe I missed you at Legends I was hoping to put some more faces to the names. I missed DANG (Dan) too.

    The coupe was in the garage at home. We brought the truck with all the gear and truck bed tent. You drove past us a few times in the camping area.... we said "Oooooo aaaaaah!". :)
