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.

Baurspotting at Lime Rock Park Historics Part IV: Spotting Baur-type Cabriolets

At Baurspotting, we have a page dedicated to non-BMW Baur-type cabriolets that date from approximately the same era as the BMW Baurs.

They are defined as "Baur-type" by the following characteristics:  a hard, removable, targa-type roof over the driver, a soft fold-down rear roof, separated by a built-in roll bar.  While meandering through the hundreds of cars on display at Lime Rock Park on September 2, 2012, I couldn't help but notice a few examples:

Lancia Beta Zagato

Jaguar XJS V12

Two BMW Baurs, for reference.  :)  JMinNJ on left, and Baurspotting on right.
Triumph Stag.  This one was parked out in the parking lot, not on display on the track

There was an additional Blue Triumph Stag present, and it won an award at the Concours.  I somehow missed getting a pic of it, however.  Mea culpa.
