According to the VIN numbers listed, all the E9s are CSLs?
1972 Silver BMW 3.0 CSL 2S 2275123
(To those who inquired about 2275 123 ...... be patient ........ and thanks for your interest !!!!! Be Safe, Jimmy) Jan 2007
1972 Silver BMW 3.0 CSi 2275302 I’m guessing the silver CSL with the rear wing is 2275302?
1972 White BMW 3.0 CS 2275011
(the motorsport "staff" street CSL (2275 011) from Richard Conway ......... so this car sat untouched for almost 2 years ......... It will be back on the highway by spring with a new owner !!!!!!!!!) @soxrus
will be restoring the Staff CSL to its original condition (color, which should be Golf yellow also, engine, suspension, etc) and displaying the race car and staff CSL together at Classic Lemans in 2008 ........
I have now confirmed (with European help .... thanks Gerrit) that the staff CSL (Golf Yellow)was in fact the CSL, used in the now famous "comparison article" in AMS between the factory CSL offering and Alpina, GS Tuning, Schnitzer, and Kopechan (spelling ????) tuner versions !!!!! This CSL letters from BMW as being sold to the the original owner ....... BMW Motorsports !!!!
To each and all .......... Happy New Year ........ Hope to post progress pics of CSL 2275 030 later this week ....... Car has been sold to a new owner from Georgia ......... I will allow him the honors of introducing himself to the group as the next owner ..... I bought this car from the...e9coupe.com
I haven't talked with Jimmy in 15 plus years , he use to race with the BMW club he had an e36 tuoring car that was crazy fast for the time , I enjoyed jimmies company funn guy , I hate to see he is struggling I hope he works something out . Any one have any idea what happened to the grren Bavaria he had ?Anybody local able to help a guy from up North - Ideally with access to trailer or at least storage for a short time (week or so) ? Outside is fine.
It's halfway between Birmingham Alabama and Chattanooga TN.
Update !!!! - good news Jimmy is alive and well and is trying to stop this auction. Fingers crossed he does, I was worried he had passed and IRS had grabbed everything........sounds like it's a case of the IRS being over aggressive and let's hope Jimmy saves the day - fingers crossed for Jimmy, he is a lovely guy and an important part of many E9s now in the US

Guys - I don't know the owner of these cars, but I found a little bit of info on his situation.
Working backwards, it is likely that this guy has been fighting with the IRS since at least 2015 for activity that occurred in 2014 or earlier.
So, the IRS conducted an audit, concluded taxes were due, attempted to collect those taxes through administrative means, and in June, 2018, dragged this guy into court.
Like all government processes, there's a form for bidding. They can't make the process too opaque or they won't get full value for the items they are selling. But maybe that's not how they view it.There is also a house being auctioned.
If this could be solved selling a few cars, then the owner would have done that himself.
The auction terms look very rigid. Like payment has to been in cashier's check at the time of bid accepted, but one would not know the amount in order to get the cashier check ahead of time...
Hope we can give the owner our sympathies. I do not know the particulars but it feels like it is easy to sense who Goliath is, perhaps.
