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.

Project Journal: Update August 5, 2013...Keith's '02

I picked up a decent driver's side quarter panel for the 2002 project tonight from a young fella named Keith  in New London.  I stopped by after attending the Ocean Beach Monday night car show, which was the best of the season so far.  Great turnout, perfect weather.  The cars come out in droves on nights like tonight. 

More on that soon.  

In the meantime.... here is the fender I picked up tonight.

As you can see, there is a 2002 in the background.  That is Keith's project '02.  Looks like it is coming along nicely.  He stated that he recently painted it.  Light brown cloth interior.  Drive train is not in the car, so it may be awhile before he gets it on the road.  Best wishes, Keith, and we look forward to seeing that car on that road!

I took the liberty of snapping one pic of the car, and here it is.  Looks great in white!  I mentioned the local Nor'east '02ers group, and Keith said that he does know Steve K. through his work.   

Kudos to Keith for the great work he is doing to bring back another '02 (1974, I think).  Keith, I hope you will join us at Nor'East 02ers.... great group of guys/gals, and lots of expertise available to help you if you need to get something sorted out.
