1982 BMW 323i Baur

1982 BMW 323i Baur
Memorial Day 2010 First Drive 1982 323i BMW Baur Lapisblau M20 5 speed #4154 of 4595 made. The car was imported to California by Dietel Enterprises. I have since changed the wheels, installed the clear turn signal lenses, and I am in the process of installing a new cabriolet roof. I have to do something about those bumpers, too. :) I love this car! To see one of the reasons why, check my post "Score One For the Good Guys" on 6/26/2011.

WTF Department: 1980 Citroen Karin

OK, so this is a little off-topic.  But we do this once in a while, and we enjoy the WTF Department, right?  

I stumbled across this today.  :)

The pictures speak for themselves.

 UMMM..... what can I say?


The Citroën Karin was a concept car presented at the Paris Motor Show in 1980. It featured a striking, pyramidal design and was designed by Trevor Fiore. The exterior of the car incorporated flush glass panels, faired rear wheels,[1] and butterfly doors.[2] The roof of the Karin was only the size of an A3 sheet of paper due to its truncated pyramid shape.[1] One of the Karin's most noticeable interior features was the unique three-seat layout with the driver located in the middle of the two passengers. Also among its features were a 4-cylinder engine, front wheel drive, and a hydropneumatic suspension like the Citroën DS.[2]
