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.

Voll Cabrio by Baur Spotted Again in Wells, Maine!

Thanks to Joe Goldsberry for spotting this Baur in Wells Maine today, and thanks to David Combs for  alerting me to it! 
Here are Joe's comments about it in Facebook today:
"Saw this beautiful 1600 in Wells Maine today. All original except for the roof. No rust!" 

Seems like we spotted a similar one recently up in that area.  Could this be the same one?

Answer, YES! 

On July 7, 2017 our friend Wink Cleary posted this message:  "Spotted in Wells, Maine.."  It was accompanied by this pic:
We asked about the license plate.  Wink Cleary replied, July 7 2017: "I couldn't read it no matter how much I enlarged the photo. It's at a service station so it may be a repair type plate.. Interestingly enough, the google street view shows a VW thing convertible (Bing shows and e46 vert) in his lot so I suspect the place is known for its classic car work."

Joe Goldsberry, 4 minutes ago: "That's the car. Brown's service station on Rt 1 across from the police station."

The license plate, even from a distance seems to match.  Bingo!  Now we just need to track down the owner!  Pine Tree Chapter Represent!  ;)  

UPDATE 11:40pm July 18, 2017:  Well, that didn't take long!  

Joe Goldsberry "The owner of the garage owns it. He said he also owns several Austin Healey's too."

Thank you, Joe!  Great job!   ;)
