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 Alpina Tribute Beauty!

My friend Harry B. is just ON FIRE with this new post tonight on his Facebook page:

Look at this beauty!

My goodness!  Is that gorgeous, or what!  Wow!

N.B.  As far as we know, there are no authentic Baur Alpinas.  But we do know of several Alpina-tribute Baurs, including Ron Perry's brilliant restoration, rdmanahan's current beautiful project and Amir K.'s in Nevada.  Search them in this blog to see more.  Garage du Bac (France) also built some.

I asked Harry where he found it, and this was his response tonight:
"Puerto Rico Classic Bimmer Group - Clasicos BMW Found it on Google! Did an Image Search, but couldn't find the source to post the link."

This is hot off the press, folks!  Thank you, Harry!  Outstanding work!

Please check out Harry's page.... he is the Hardest Workin' Man in the BMW business!  ;)

Here is a new pic of Ron Perry's Alpina Tribute Baur taken August 17, 2013 at Laguna Seca by our friend, Tom D.  Thanks, Tom D!
