Barney Toler here in Leander, Texas...Proud to be the new owner of a Baikal 71 2800cs 124,000 original miles 1000 miles in the last 12 years. my plan right now is to get sorted it out mechanically first and then cosmetically...
Welcome Barney, I’m sure Ed will be working with you on this one, she’s a beauty.
You'll quickly find that we're a bunch of pompous, big ego'd, self-centered, walk around looking down our noses type of owners.
Hal, would love to see you guys give me a call 512 789 35 93...Excellent description! Coming from the '02 to the e9 world can be quite a shock. But I am sure Barney will quickly learning how to steer with one pinkie sticking up in the air and how to ask a fellow e9 owner if they have any Grey Poupon.
Not sure of the history completely but the car did start off in California and I know it was there for at least 20 years, I also know in the first 11 years of life it only had 12,000 miles put on it...Welcome aboard Mr T.
I recall speaking to an owner of a Blue 2800cs with white interior at coupe gathering in Monterey 25 years ago. It stuck with me because he said it’s was factory color and he never took his kids out for ice cream. Not many e9s running around with white interior. Congrats!
As a vintage BMW guy who‘s existed simultaneously in 2002 and e9 world for many years there’s nothing to it, Any stories you’ve heard about e9 owner‘s arrogance are greatly exaggerated. It’s not like we’re Porsche guys.
