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.

BMW 507 - THE ROCK'N'ROLL PHOENIX----The Long-Lost Elvis BMW 507!

In honor of BMW's 100th Anniversary Celebration this week in Monterey, CA, Baurspotting is pleased to offer this video from BMW:  the story of the discovery and restoration of the famous BMW 507 once owned by Elvis Presley when he was stationed in the Army in Germany.  The 507 is considered by many folks to be the most beautiful BMW ever designed, and it is one of the rarest, since only about 250 were built.  It is a brilliant car, and a great story!

This 507 has been stored in a barn since 1968, and it is being presented ---completely restored to the Highest Standards by BMW--- for the first time this week at the BMW Celebration in Monterey!   

So, stop whatever you are doing and watch this video.  You can thank me later.  Our thanks to Frank Greppo of the BMW CCA Patroon Chapter for sharing it with me.  Enjoy! 

Happy 100th Anniversary, BMW!
