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.

Our 1982 323i Baur at Bimmerfest East 2011: Pics and Videos

I am finally catching up to some pics and video shot by others at our recent Bimmerfest East adventure. You may recall that my son, Brian, accompanied me on a 900 mile trip, that included joining the Turner Motorsports Caravan on August 5 at BMW NA headquarters in Woodcliff Lake, NJ enroute to Bimmerfest East on August 6, 2011. I have located some pics and videos of the experience, and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did! We had a ball!

Turner Motorsports Caravan again. You can see the Baurspotting Baur parked in front with Steve52's white 320is behind it.  Tom in the white hat.  Getting ready to depart.

BMW NA Alpina B7.  this car did not make the trip with the caravan.  A very impressive car, btw.

Two BMW enthusiasts from NJ we met along the way in the caravan. We followed them for a bit when the caravan got temporarily broken up by a Garden State Parkway Toll Plaza. Nice fellas.

1:40-1:44 live shot of the Baur, 3rd car behind the Frozen Grey on the Delaware Memorial Bridge, keeping pace, doing 'Indian Sprints' at 90 mph.  The Frozen Grey, a Z4, an E30 and an E21!!!!  Nobody expects an E21 there!
Woo hoo!  That is my son Brian giving the "V" Sign, I am driving;

at 3:02 you can see Dan(midlifebmw) waving in charbel to the parking area.

We had a great time in the Turner Motorsports Caravan, and meeting our fellow E21 Legionaires at the show.  Definitely recommended.
