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.

Royal Baur-Type Cabrio Spotted In The Netherlands! ;)

This car was posted by our friend and fellow Baur owner Cawdy Karsten Nielsen in Facebook today:  although it is NOT a Baur, it does fall into the category of "Baur Type Cabrios" by virtue of..... well, you can see the resemblance.  ;)  

Here is how Cawdy introduced it on a Baur page in Facebook:
Just stumbled upon this one as I'm a big Ford Sierra and Scorpio geek besides my 325ix baur and this would be a cool thing to have with my TC2 😁👌
Made by Terberg Specials for the Royal family in Holland I think it was.

And here you can see the roof in the "Landaulette' position, allowing the Royal Passengers to see, and 'be seen' without the obstruction and inconvenience of a 'roof'.  

This is the roof configuration I always like to use whenever I have Royalty in my Baur, btw.  ;)  

Cawdy's post was followed shortly by this confirmation from Baur Guru Jeroen Janssen:
Jeroen Janssen Correct, the AA-plate indicates a royal owner. And it is still in possesion of our royal family 
Thanks for posting, Cawdy!  ;)
