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.

Baurquest II: The Bullenstall Museum Baur

The Roaming Baur arrives at the Bullenstall Museum

Bullenstall Baur plate:  # 1282.

These are pics taken on the morning of August 10, 2011 at the Bullenstall Museum in Mechanicsburg, PA.  Thanks to info from Scott and Michael Behman, we contacted Hugh Freet  (at 1(717)697-9448 ) of Cumberland Valley Motors  (owned by Ed Ullom, who also owns the Bullenstall Museum), who holds the "Keys to the Kingdom", so to speak. 

Once again, as we have seen so frequently in our travels this week, Hugh was a gracious and accomodating host.  He opened the doors to the Museum to us, and encouraged us to take as long as we wished to peruse the inventory.  And what an inventory!!!  The Z1 and the Z8 were away from the museum appearing at shows, so we did not get to see them... but everything else was there!  Wow!  The main target of our search is pictured above, but there were many more that we were able to just drool over. 

So if you happen to be in that Carlisle/Mechanicsburg area for any reason, give them a call.  They welcome visitors, which according to Hugh, they get all the time.  Do not hesitate to pop in on them, you won't regret it!  I called Hugh enroute to the Museum at 9:06am, and he was waiting for us when we arrived about 15 or so minutes later.  Real nice guy.  We were outta there and back on the road home by about 10am, although we could certainly have lingered longer.  I will be posting other pics from the Bullenstall Museum down the road, so stay tuned.  Huge thank you to Hugh Freet, and to Ed Ullom!
