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 #000001 at Oldtimers Exposition Ghent, Belgium February 14, 2014

Our friend and fellow Baur owner Andreas Therstappen is attending the Oldtimers Exposition in Ghent, Belgium this weekend, and he has posted a pic in Facebook.  We hope to see more pics in the course of the show, so stay tuned!

P.S.  These pics are a sneak peek into the show.... the Exposition doesn't actually start until tomorrow!  Thanks, Andreas!

Andreas is in good company at the event, btw, as you can see:  (left to right) BMW 507, BMW M1 by Baur, BMW 1600GT, and Baur #000001!

Notice the license plate:  it refers to the fact this this is the FIRST E21 Baur ever built!  Baur Plate # 000001!

Andreas sent us this pic from his garage recently as he was getting Baur #000001 ready to go to the show:

Stay tuned for more!  

More pics from the Oldtimers Exposition in Ghent, Belgium from Andreas.  Thanks Andreas!

Kudos to Andreas' wife, who is cleaning his car in the pic above for the show while he takes these pictures!  Wow! That is true devotion!  Thank you from Baurspotting, Mrs. Therstappen!  We owe you a beer!   :)


Nice!  I love these colors!   (Hint, hint!  ;) )

Jags!  I love the XJS, btw.  And the early XJS cabrios have a very Baur-like targa top, soft rear top and built-in roll bar!  Like a Baur Top Cabriolet!  And that is a red Z1 at the extreme left, btw.

E9! And Baur Targa!

Motorcycle and Batrmobile!

Whoa!  What is this!!!!  Shouldn't it say "Baur' there?  The short answer is 'yes'.  But.... this is a VERY special Baur!  You MUST see this previous post:

Therein you will find the explanation of the pic above!  This is very privileged information, btw!  Very few people would have any idea what this was.  Here is an earlier pic from that Baurspotting blog post from Andreas which shows the origin of the pic above:
Aha!  Check the blog post above for the explanation.  I don't know of any other Baur site in the world that posted this info!  Thank you, Andreas!
