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.

This Is NOT a Baur! But It IS An Abomination!

This one has been posted around the Internet from time to time.  I may have even done a post years ago.  I stumbled on it again today when going through some old files.  So I repost it as a cautionary tale:  this car entered this world as an E21 320i coupe.  "Look what they've done to my car!"  

It was in Florida at one time, and then I heard it was in Michigan or Minnesota.  Haven't heard anything for a couple of years now.  Not that I am complaining.  

My bias is that I prefer original cars, so I have a hard time with this one.  But I do understand the desire to make the car your own, and I respect the right of every owner to do so.  I admire the skills and craftsmanship--- not to mention the passion---  that it takes to do that.  

But this one.... is beyond the pale, to be kind.  What was he thinking?  ;)

Please don't answer that question, I don't want to know!  ;)
