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.

Vintage at Saratoga 2015: Saratoga-Bound Baurs!

Friday afternoon enroute to Saratoga:  Baurspotting Baur followed by Afonso's Baur #000048!  A beautiful day for a top down drive!  Baurspotting drove up 'landaulette-style":  Targa roof on, rear soft top folded down.  This allowed  Brian and I to sit in shaded comfort with a 70mph gale blowing through the car!  Beautiful!

Pic taken by our friend Jose Rosario, following in his 330i Coupe!  Nice shot, Jose!  Thank you for sending!

Saratoga is a delightful little college town with a lot of street life on a summer night.  After the Meet and Greet Dinner at the Parting Glass we (Afonso, Joe Cunningham, my son Brian and I) took a stroll around town, stopping for an espresso, and a gelato.  We also stopped to watch one of the many street performers, in this case a magician

Here you see Brian at the right and JOe on the left, mesmerized by the rope tricks and sleight of hand with a Rubik's cube of this street magician.  This guy was VERY good, btw!  

Stay tuned!  The party has just begun!  ;)
