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.

1970 BMW “3002″ PROTOTYPE

Here’s something I didn’t know about—-in 1970, the BMW Werks team developed a weird concoction of part BMW 2002 and part E9 coupe and came up with the 3002. The car raced in one race, the 1970 Tour De Corse—-and the car still exists, although it’s in pretty ratty shape somewhere in California, according to someone who has seen it there.
Around 270hp with a 6 cylinder and weighing around 950 kg—–the car was surely a bit of an animal for the time.
ORIGINAL PICS from 1970:

In it’s most RECENT condition…but still alive!  (Pics from Walter Thomas, circa 2003.  Thank you Walter!)

  1. Looks like BMW has mounted/tested a early version of ABS on this car? Seems to be the same as used on E23?
