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.

Baur Cabrio Targa For Hire in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne!

Thanks to our friend Scott S. for giving us the heads up on this Cabrio Targa in a photo shoot that he spotted in Newcastle, Northumbria, UK!
That is a pretty dramatic photo, and it aroused our curiosity!  So we clicked on the link, and we were able to track it down.  It is part of the fleet at Northumbria Classic Car Hire, in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK.

Here are some pics from the shoot that day.

I thought this was an interesting little feature from their website:  
A lovely guy Paul Sewell Burman was our first paying customer hiring our BMW Convertible to take his father Greg out for his 70th birthday, accompanied by his mum. They had a lovely day out in the afternoon sun on the Northumberland coast and also lunch in Carluccios in Grey St. Greg Burman is world famous for his company Burman Amps- the amp of choice in the 70s and 80s for rock bands worldwide, manufactured in the Handyside Arcade. Later on Paul couldn't resist another run out with his fiance Kate to let her enjoy the 70s open top classic experience. Hes coming back later in the year to hire our E-Type, thanks Paul!

Very cool!  And just by coincidence, I am posting this on Father's Day!

 Gotta love this next one!  Move over, Katy Perry!  ;)

Awww!  ;)

And some more featured pics from the website:

Thank you, Scott, for the tip!  Northumbria Classic Car Hire may introduce a whole new group to the wonderful BMW 2002 and Cabrio Targa by Baur!
