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.

UPDATED UPDATE! Golf Cabrio Targa Sold in PNW!

UPDATE To the Updated Update!!!  Whoa!

You may recall the post below from last December 2013, and previously from June 2013, when Paul S. first spotted it in Issaquah, WA.

Thanks to Paul W. of Vancouver in 2002FAQ yesterday, we have another update to the previous update!  :)

This is his post in the FAQ:
"Posted Yesterday, 10:38 PM
One just sold, got bought in Seattle, Golf Yellow, $16K. It was on CL for a day, and removed. Didn't even have time to post here.

Hopefully the new owner will share pix with us. "

Seeing this, I was immediately reminded of the Golf Yellow Targa posted by Paul, and so I posted a pic and asked if the sold Targa could possibly be this one.  
Could one of the guys pictured here be the owner/seller?  Pic is from Paul S June 2013.  Hey, it could even be the eventual BUYER!!??  We just don't know at this point.

I mean really, when you think about it.... how many Golf Yellow Baur Cabrio Targas can there BE in the Seattle area??!!!  :)   Sooooo, I had a feeling......

And sure enough:  BINGO!  Paul responded a little while ago in the FAQ:
Posted Today, 01:08 PM
Tomscat1, yes that's the one that sold yesterday in Seattle.

No idea who bought it. Anyone here? 

Once again.... it's a Small Baur World!!  

The Good News we have (partly) identified this Baur!  Thank you , Paul, for the heads up and the confirmation!

The Bad News is:  we still don't know who the owner is!!  

OK, PNW Baurspotters Alert!  Please keep your eyes peeled for this Golf Yellow Baur Cabrio Targa!  let's bring him/her into our Baur community!

Thanks again, PaulW--- and Paul S.!  We couldn't do this without your help !

Stay tuned!   :)

UPDATE 12/7/2013:  While going through some old files..... look at what I found!

Here is the caption that I found on the pic:
"bmw_2002_targa_72  512 0f 1963 per 2002 Haus San Luis Obispo CA".  

Check the wheels, etc.  Looks like the same car.....  So, it would appear that the Cabrio Targa in Issaquah, WA was previously located  at 2002 Haus in San Luis Obispo, CA.  This pic is dated 10/4/2007, btw. 

Do we have any other info on this car yet?  :)

Stay tuned!

Many thanks to Paul Skelton who spotted this 2002 Baur Targa out in Issaquah , WA.  Paul posted these pics today on Facebook.  He reports that he was unable to find the owner, so we have no other info on this Baur.

Thank you, Paul!

Anyone know this car?
