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.

Baurspotter of the Week Award: Tom Jones!

Our friend, Tom Jones, was on the track at Laguna Seca today with his dad riding in his cousin Matt's tii.  Their car was following Tery and Deb Sayther's 'M2" Cabrio Targa by Baur, with Mike Pugh and Bo aboard.   Mike shot a great little video which we have posted here already earlier tonight*.

But now we have a couple of pics taken by Tom of the Sayther Baur on the track!

First we will set up the scenario: 
This pic is a screen shot from Mike Pugh's video, and you can see the '02 that Tom is riding in behind the Baur on the course.  That is Deb's hand on the Cabrio Targa's roll bar, and Mike pug's baseball cap in the lower part of the pic.  

Here are the two pics that Tom posted!  It appears that Terry is about to hit that downhill curve that he mentions in the video!  Nice timing, Tom! 

You will note that the back seat passengers are boosted up in the back seat and they are utilizing the roll bar!   You can't do that in a regular cabrio, folks! 

I love these pics!  Thank you, Tom, for shooting them and sharing them with us!  Just know that you have put a smile on a lot of Baur owner faces with these pics!  

Baurspotter of the Week Award:  Tom Jones!  
Honorable Mention: Terry Sayther for getting the Baur on the track and Mike Pugh for the great video!

*Here is the link to the video from Mike Pugh that we posted a little while ago!  


What a great night!  Thanks Terry, Mike and Tom!
