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.

Baurs at SoCal Vintage October 19, 2013

UPDATE October 21, 2013:  8 Baurs at SoCal Vintage!  That's right....EIGHT!*   See bottom of post.

SoCal Vintage was held yesterday in Woodley Park, Van Nuys, CA and it appears that there was a great turnout once again!

Thanks to our friend and fellow Baur owner Curtis W. for sending these pics.  Curtis also reported that: 
he saw this 1600 Cabrio (we believe it is the Carl Nelson/Katy Perry Cabrio), 2 other E30 Baurs, an E21 Baur, plus his own E30 Baur!  

That would make 5 Baurs.  We are looking to confirm that with pics of the Baurs at the show, and we will post them when we have them.  

Here are Curtis' pics:

Carl Nelson's 1600 Cabrio by Baur. Carl is from La Jolla Independent.

This is Vanik B's new Baur.

Thanks, Curtis!

Ok that is three Baurs right there, plus Curtis' E30 Baur, which unfortunately we don't have a pic of.... yet!

We have received some more Baur pics from SoCal Vintage!  These are from another friend and fellow Baur owner,Vanik Badlian.  Thanks, Vanik!

OK, now it looks as though we have pics of 5 different Baurs at SoCal Vintage, plus, we know that Curtis brought his E30 Baur.....that makes 6!  It appears that there could be more.... since Curtis mentioned seeing an E21 Baur that we have not confirmed yet.

A couple more pics from VWVortex of Carl Nelson's Baur:

I love it!

So.... stay tuned.... there could be more to come

Bingo!  The E21 Baur!  Pic from Mr. Noobie in r3vlimited:
Check the upper right of the pic for the white E21 Baur!

UPDATE:  We have identified the E21 Baur in the pic above!  We have compared the license plate to the pics in our files and....Bingo!  We have a winner!  That is Sevan's Baur #658 which we have seen at previous shows!  

Hello Sevan!  This pic is from a previous how.... but compare the license plates!  Same car!

That makes 7 Baurs, including Curtis' (not pictured)!

Here is a video of the whole show from Youtube:
And another video by Lucian Hood:

*UPDATE:  Thanks to some pics posted by Jon Shafer, we have spotted another Baur in the crowd at SoCal Vintage on October 19, 2013.  There was a Z1 by Baur on the field!  that makes 8 Baurs!
