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.

1600 Voll Cabrio at Oktoberfest 2014

Thanks to m6smitten in the 2002faq for this pic taken at Oktoberfest 2014 in Beaver Creek, Colorado last week.  I believe it was one of 18 cars in the judged Concours competition.


Our friend, Dirk d. G. added the following info:
 "Prior to winning second price in the concours, Elliott completed a 1,200 mile Colorado driving tour (which included a climb to the Pikes Peak summit) in his 1600 cabrio."

Thank you, Dirk!

What is Oktoberfest?
Thanks to visionaut, also in the 2002faq, for this succinct summary:
For FAQers that aren't BMWCCA members -- Oktoberfest is the annual 'whole-club gathering' event for Club members, held at rotating locations around the USA each year during summer/fall. It's a full week of fun activities celebrating the marque. Last year it was held in California, alongside the famous Monterey & Pebble Beach automotive events. This year it finally returned to Colorado, and it was more of a smaller, social OFest. Many FAQers might remember the last time Colorado was host to the event, in 2002 in Keystone CO, when a massive number of 2002s showed - since our 02 was honored as the 'marque' BMW model that year.

Thanks to m6smitten and visionaut for the above!
