Electric 1602 built by BMW in 1972

BMW had a prototype electric 1602 they showed off at the Olympics. Clearly not practical but a harbinger of things to come: https://www.hagerty.com/media/automotive-history/50-years-before-the-i4-bmw-showed-off-an-electric-1602-at-the-olympics/?utm_source=SFMC&utm_medium=email&utm_content=MED_UN_NA_...

Re: BMW Relay - spendy but is it any better?

As for the circuitry, it looks comparable. The marking are slightly different with the new relay having an 87 and 87b marking instead of just two 87 legs. Also the new one looks like it has 2 diodes. I can make out but one in the original. An advantage for the new relay. My guess is in the earlier ...

Re: President Donald J Trump makes history...

Agreed, presidents don't control prices when it comes to nickles and pennies but their policies do influence direction True. If biden was serious about controlling inflation, his first actions in January wouldn't have been to impose restrictions on the industry. Actually, the Fed tries to control i...

Re: President Donald J Trump makes history...

You're working hard to defend an indefensible position and most of your post doesn't warrant a reply. Why, because everything I have said was factually correct. Let's start by standardizing the prices used...this is from the DOE and gives monthly averages, back to 1994. December 2020 gas was 2.555 ...

Re: President Donald J Trump makes history...

For the sake of discussion, let's say gas with the economy in full swing was 2.99 on 12/31/2019 The economy was no where near in full swing then. and some 6 months into a still restricted biden presidency it's 3.22. That's a 9% difference in 6 months...and in many states, like the liberal shithole ...

Objectivity usually finds the correct answer, agenda...Not so much. This is from Factcheck.org and is based on data available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It is true that inflation-adjusted wages (average weekly for production and nonsupervisory workers) peaked in February 1973 at $345.95, ...

Re: President Donald J Trump makes history...

The fact is that 2019 gas prices were far less the today's prices and that was with our economy running full tilt, not hobbled state we're in today. In 2019 gas prices peaked at just under $3 and are just above $3 today. That's hardly far less and they didn't tank until the economy did. Inflation s...

Re: President Donald J Trump makes history...

key point is that Trump kept inflation in check while increasing middle-class HHI. something that neither obama or biden can claim. If fact, you may remember obama saying those jobs were not coming back. One reason, and probably the main reason, gas prices and inflation were low was the pandemic ba...

WAGNER 3497 vs Honda 34903-SF1-A01bulb

Anyone have any experience with the WAGNER 3497 bulb in their taillights? It's a 15BS base, 45CP 27W bulb. The Honda 34903-SF1-A01 seems to be a preferred replacement for stock bulbs.

Re: Taillight bulb holder removal.

Thanks. It's just a small piece of brass that I could make from stock, but the existing hole just needs to be reamed out to fit a universal holder so I may just do that. Plus, I then have a set of functional Euro buckets as well. May just resilver those and run wires.

Taillight bulb holder removal.

I am pulling the bulb holders from a spare set of Euro front turn signal buckets to put in the open tailight spot in the rear. The holder came out easily once I found the holding clip, but for the life of me cannot remove the metal strip that contacts the bulb center pin. It wiggles but something is...
