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.

Baur TC1s in the US: Interim Status Report II

I have made some updates to the Baur Interim Status Report to reflect some of the new information that has come to us. 
We now have 43 confirmed Baur TC1s in the US; we have 11 more that we know exist but we haven't confirmed the Baur numbers yet. That makes a total of 54. That is an increase of 6 from our last report in July, 2011.
That number includes 3 baurs that we have moved from other categories: for example, we had no Baur plate number for the Beaufort Baur previously, and we now know the plate number, and that it has been moved to LA from SC.
We now have 28 more unconfirmed reports/rumors of TC1 Baurs. The Baur rumored to be in Scottsdale AZ has now beeen confirmed as Baur #118.
We also still have 11 Baur numbers from Jeroen's original US Baur TC1 list for which we have no information yet. Jeroen's other list of 25 that were largely destined for Canada, but some of which came to the US, are still not accounted for also. Not to mention the undiscovered barn finds that are out there, perhaps!

Baur TC1s in the US summary: we have 43 confirmed; 11 probables; 28 rumored; 11 + 25 unaccounted for; and an unknown number of 'undiscovereds'.

Stay tuned.
