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.

Calling All Baurs!

Vintage at Saratoga 2012

July 14, 2012

OK, Baur owners!

Let's make this OUR event for 2012!  This is the 3rd year of The Vintage at Saratoga.  Let us make it a memorable one.

How many Baurs can we get together for this occasion?  We have seen as many as five (5) at The Vintage last month in Old Salem, NC.  What a beautiful setting that was for vintage cars!  Saratoga promises the same, as well as offering the Saratoga Auto Museum!

We now know that there are a number of Baurs in the New England/New York/Mid-Atlantic area.   This is not to mention that there are several others in the Philly/DC area.... and who knows how many may be lurking out there undetected that will show up on their own?

I have been in contact with most of the owners that we know of and.... if everything falls into place --- and the weather cooperates---- we certainly have the potential to beat the 5 that showed  last Memorial Day at the Vintage in Old Salem, NC!!

And.... we may have the strongest showing of E21 Baurs EVER in the US!

But.... can we do it?

So.... I am putting out the call to ALL Baur owners in the East:  bring out your Baurs to Saratoga NY for the Vintage on July 14, 2012!

We want you all there:  1600 cabriolets, 2002 Targas, 2002 Voll Cabriolets, E21 TC1s, E30 TC2s---are there any E36 TC4s in the US?  Come one, come all!

There's more:  BMW 502, the 700LS, the 1936-37 BMW 329 2+2 Cabrio, the BMW M1... ok ok, I am dreaming now, I know.  But still, you never know what is out there!

Here are the details for the Saturday show:
Saturday July 14, 2012
10:00 AM – 3:00 PM – Lawn Show on the grounds of the Saratoga Automobile Museum. Gates open at 9:00 AM.




It should be a great show, and I am told the Saratoga Auto Museum is a great venue.  Rumor has it that there will be a BMW 507 on the field, and much more, of course!

Baurspotting will be there!    See you in Saratoga on July 14!
