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.

"SLINGSHOT!" Hollywood picks up the Bill Caswell story! An E30 Rally Movie!

The Bill Caswell saga continues......

Gotta love Bill Caswell!

The actor's production shingle will guide pic centering on do-it-yourself car racer Bill Caswell.

Paramount has picked up Slingshot, a pitch centering around the true-life story of racer Bill Caswell, with Jeremy Renner attached to star and produce.
Renner will produce with Don Handfield, his partner at their shingle the Combine, with Handfield on board to write the screenplay.
A great underdog story, Caswell became known as a do-it-yourself racer when he bought a 991 BMW 318i that he found on Craigslist for $500. The unemployed man, a racing fanatic with time on his hands, refurbished the rust bucket and began entering racing rallies.
EXCLUSIVE: Jeremy Renner Forms Production Company, Developing Steve McQueen Biopic
His first race was inauspicious: he crashed the car in the first five minutes and blew the engine. Eventually, however, Caswell ended up on the winning track, coming in third place at the World Rally Championships in Mexico and beating teams with cars worth $400,000.
Renner and his Combine team seem to be focusing on the true-life testosterone-skewing fare. As first reported by THR, Combine's first project in development is McQueen, a biopic of the man’s man actor. Ivan Zacharias is attached to direct with James Gray writing the script.
Renner is repped by CAA and Untitled. Handfield is repped by UTA.
