Thanks to our friend and fellow Baur owner Afonso Conceicao for the heads upon the beautiful E21 Baur for sale in the Washington DC area. It is a familiar Baur to us, btw, #689. We met the former owner, Greg S., back on "Glory Day'* in 2012 at the Vintage at Saratoga, NY. He sold it to another gentleman named Greg in the Silver Spring MD area, and we did a post about it in July of 2015**. It is apparently now owned by "Steve', who has posted it for sale on ebay. It is a beauty, with some nice upgrades, including a close ratio transmission, and an upgraded engine. Check it out!
This may be the seller, btw. (Below).

And here it is on the showroom floor this afternoon!
I believe that the gentleman standing near the wall at the right of the pic behind the Baur is Steve K., whose phone number is in the ebay ad. Baurspotting is on the case! ;)
