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.

British By The Sea June 2, 2019

The 32nd Annual British by the Sea Gathering took place on Sunday June 2, 2019 at the beautiful Harkness Memorial State Park.  Although I no longer own a British car, it remains one of my favorite shows of the year, and it is basically in my backyard!  Here is part of the write-up from the MG Register page, which explains the event:  

The CT MG Club's 32nd

The CT MG Club's "BRITISH BY THE SEA” is a fun GATHERING of people who own and appreciate British Vehicles of all Marques. Although we do present etched glass mug awards to vehicles selected by popular vote, "BRITISH BY THE SEA" is not a judged show. We want to encourage ALL British car, truck, and motorcycle owners and enthusiasts to attend and have an enjoyable time. Whether your vehicle is in pristine condition, or a daily driver, sparkling paint and chrome or with “Barn Fresh” patina, it deserves to be part of the event and on the display field.
Our featured Marque for our 32nd year will be Classic Mini produced from 1959 thru 2000.. Please put this on your calendar and join us for a Fun GATHERING of all British Marques.

This is the first car I see as I enter the event.  What a little beauty, currently in the midst of restoration.

The featured Marque this year:  Minis!  Yay!  ;) 

Wolseley Mini! 

N.B.:  The event is entitled "British by the Sea", not British 'Cars' by the Sea, so .... we are all good!  ;)

Singer Gazelle

Yes.  Allard!  ;)

The Real Deal, folks!   ;)


The Jaguar V-12.
