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.

The F-Bomb Meets BMW Media In Pittsburgh! Michelin's Pittsburgh to Columbus: Celebrate BMW Tour

Our friend Paul Wegweiser is taking the F- Bomb on an epic journey to the 100 Year BMW Celebration in Monterey CA this week!  Baurspotting is helping to sponsor his trip, thereby earning this little treasured memento:

But wait!  There's more!  If the F-Bomb is not the most famous 2002 in America today, it probably WILL  be by the end of this Monterey saga! Michelin is sponsoring a cross country road trip to Monterey, and they made a stop in Pittsburgh, stomping grounds of the F-Bomb!  They did a little video session with some members of the local BMW CCA Allegheny Chapter, and Paul Wegweiser gets a plum featured spot!  Check it out!

The F-Bomb presented by the F-Bomber (Paul Wegweiser) himself!  This is a screen shot from the video above.

What??  You say you don't know anything about Paul and the F-Bomb?

Fear not, friends! Baurspotting has got you covered!  

Paul is a Mechanic Extraordinaire, Metal Sculptor, Automotive Writer and Blogger, Weird Music Lover, and General Mischief Maker.  He is also a Legend in BMW circles. 

We posted about Paul a couple of years ago, and you will find some essential info here, including an excerpt from Paul's blog where he tells the story of how ---and why!--- he acquired the F-Bomb.  And pics too.  ;)  Check it out!

Here are a few pics to pique your interest!

California Dreamin'?  ;)

Here is the link to our post a couple of years ago!  Please check it out!


And this may be part of the reason why I have an affinity for Paul and his car:

I acquired this rough little 1973 BMW 2002 a couple of years ago.  Not pretty, but basically mechanically sound, and a blast to drive!  TBone's Barebones Beater BMW!  ;)

Although I don't think he's taking 'Route 66", Paul will be chronicling 'that California trip', and you can 'get hip to his timely tips' here:

"Paul Wegweiser's Automotive Sideshow"

Oh, did I mention Mischief Maker?  I will just leave this here.  ;)  From the Vintage at the Vineyards May 2014.


Godspeed, Paul!
