Resurrecting Bertha: A Clutch Performance - BimmerLife
As I wait for the logistics on the Lama (the E28 I just bought sight-unseen in Tampa) to settle, I’ve turned my gaze and wrenches back to Bertha in a final push of fall fixes. via Pocket

Resurrecting Bertha: I Win The End Game - BimmerLife

Resurrecting Bertha: The End Game - BimmerLife
That’s a silly title, really: There is no end, and thus no end game, to vintage-car ownership. If I were a golfer, perhaps I’d instead say, “The short game”—you know, the ball is on the green, you’re close, get it in the hole. But that’s not right, either. via Pocket

Resurrecting Bertha: Making Her Cold Again - BimmerLife
Surely you don’t think I’d go to all this work, buying back and resurrecting Bertha, the 1975 2002 I owned in Austin—initially purchased 32 years ago partially because it had air-conditioning—and not get the a/c working? As Bugs Bunny said to Elmer Fudd, “You don’t know me very well, do via Pocket

Resurrecting Bertha: Inspection Woes, Part II - BimmerLife
Last week I discussed how, in order to continue drive Bertha, I needed to make her completely legal, which meant getting her past a stringent Massachusetts state inspection. This required replacing her blatantly cracked windshield. via Pocket

A Tale Of Two Starters - BimmerLife
It seems like back in the day, I replaced a lot of starters in 2002s and other vintage BMWs. Either they’d gradually get worse, cranking slower and becoming hot to the touch, or they’d suddenly die. via Pocket

Sharkie Gets New Struts (Part II: An Unlikely Savior) - BimmerLife
Last week, I described taking Sharkie (my ’79 Euro 635CSi) for a post-winter drive, discovering that the car’s ride had deteriorated to the point of being oxcart-like, being horrified to find the right front fender sinking so far down onto the wheel that the tire hit the fender while turning, a via Pocket
