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.

Vintage at Saratoga 2013! Get Your Calendars Out!

Is it too early to start the buzz about the Vintage at Saratoga 2013?


Registration is now open for the fourth BMW Vintage at Saratoga to be held on October 12th, 13th, and 14th, 2013.

The Vintage at Saratoga 2012 was the site and the occasion for the LARGEST gathering ever (as far as we know) of BMW Baurs in the US!



Can we do it again?

The event will be potentially bigger than ever this year, since it has been moved to October to coincide with two other events at the Saratoga Automobile Museum.  Here is an email I received the other day from Frank Greppo of the BMW CCA Patroon Chapter, the host chapter for the event.  Frank is a great guy, and he was very supportive of our efforts to bring out the Baurs last year.  Thanks again, Frank, and we look forward to seeing you again this October!

If you haven't seen the Saratoga Automobile Museum, that ALONE  is sufficient reason to make this trip!  Trust me on that!  Throw in the Vintage at Saratoga Show, and the week-long BMW Vintage and Classic Car Club ----  PLUS the potential for another great showing of BMW Baurs-------- and this becomes a 'Can't Miss Event!"

Be There or Be Square!  See you there!

Check out Frank's email, and the links below to the event.

Hi All,
Registration is now open for Vintage at Saratoga 2013. There are a few changes for this year, most notably the move from July to October. This will enable V@S to become a part of two other BMW centered events at the Saratoga Automobile Museum. First we will have the opportunity to enjoy the cars on the floor of the museum. This BMW themed exhibit will include art cars, pre-war cars and a few examples from one of the worlds most prominent collections of BMW motorcycles. This weekend will also be the start of the BMW Vintage and Classic Car Club's fall holiday. They have planned a week long series of drives centered in the Saratoga area, and they will join us for a Meet and Greet dinner on Saturday night. This tour will also include significant cars from BMWs history. While these events are all stand alone, Saratoga will be the focal point of vintage BMWs, and we welcome you to be a part of it all.

Hope to see you this fall,

Vintage at Saratoga 2013

2013 marks the fourth year of Vintage at Saratoga. This year we are gathering on the lawn of the Saratoga Automobile Museum in October so that we may pair with the opening weekend of the BMW Vintage and Classic Car Club of America’s week long holiday. While the two are separate and stand alone events we will join in on a few shared activities. October also marks the closing weeks of the museum’s BMW exhibit and so attendees will also be treated to experience some of the very finest classic BMWs cars on the floor of the museum.
