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.

VIDEO! Special Baurs (First and Last Together) at Stuttgart Retro Classics 2008

Thank you to my friend, Andreas Therstappen of Belgium, for posting this video in Facebook today!  It is a short video of some of the highlights of the Retro Classic Show in Stuttgart 2008.  This was a very special occasion:   Andreas presented E21 Baur #000001 and Baur #04595, the first and last E21 Baurs built together at the show.

Both Baurs are owned by Andreas.  We featured a series of posts on the restoration of Baur #000001 in Baurspotting a while back, and there is a link to that post (told in Andreas' own words in both English and the original German) below.  Lots of pics of the restoration also.  Be sure to check that out!

Anyway, here is the link to the video!


Thank you, Andreas!

 Andreas himself is in some of the pics, and so is Hermann Wenzelburger, the co-designer of the Baurs.

 There is a picture of Mr. Wenzelburger autographing the hood of Baur #00001.

Check out the video above.  Then go to this post in Baurspotting where you will see many of the same pics with an explanation.
