Here is a start to listing all the 2002 Baur Targas that we have found in the US. We have lots more info and pics on each of these cars. We will try to add that here as time allows.

We will also be adding to this page as we find more Targas. Apologies in advance for any inadvertent oversights..... send me pics and I will post them here!

We hope to do the same soon for the 1600 and 2002 Baur Cabriolets, btw!

Stay tuned!

FYI: The white Baur in your post from Vintage 2012 belongs to Deb and Terry Sayther, of Austin, TX and no, it's not the same car as the next picture.

Happy hunting!

Thank you, Clay! Your help is much appreciated.

Doesn't Terry Sayther have a shop in Texas? I believe I have heard the name before. That is a very cool Targa that he has!

Anyone have any clue as to the owner of the other white Targa at the Vintage (2011)?

Tom, I remember the green (don't think that's a factory 02 color) Targa being for sale about a year and a half ago by a dealer in the San Jose, CA area. Haven't seen it since. Perhaps it's still in the Bay Area...

Yep, his shop is in Austin, TX.

Wow, Clay, thank you for that information on the Saythers, and also for that link to the story of the M2. What a great story! An M2 Baur Targa! Wow!

I have shared it on Baurspotting, along with links back to Terry's page, because I know that Baurspotting readers around the world will be as fascinated and inspired by it as I was!

Kudos to Terry, Deb and Duncan!

Thank you for posting.... it is now up in Baurspotting.

Although I see the Targa is in Oregon and you are in Kodiak, AK, you may be interested to know that there is another Baur in Alaska! Jeff (alaskabimmer in E21bimmerforums) has a beautiful E21 Baur that has now been used in two films that were filmed on location in Alaska: The Big Miracle (about the whales), and a Nick Cage murder movie, based on a true story.. THE FROZEN GROUND ....I dont think that has been released yet.

He also DROVE his Baur alone from Anchorage to Pasadena CA for Bimmerfest a couple of years ago, a trip of Epic proportions! It took 4 days on gravel roads to cross Canada..... camping out!! No Holiday Inn Express out there! Great story!

He lives in Anchorage.

Here is a link to one of his posts about the Nick Cage movie:

Nice fella, and I am sure he'd love to hear from a fellow Baur owner out in the great Alaskan wilderness! :)

Anyone know this Baur Targa?

http://bringatrailer.com/2010/11/11/bat-exclusive-restored-1973-bmw-2002-baur-targa/

It says it was in the Chicago area at the time of this listing back in 2010. Any idea where it went? It was originally green.

We have known about it for quite some time.... scroll way down to see it here:

I used to own this car... Sold it to someone in Florida in 2004? Next I know, it's in Chicago is Inka and has doubled in price. The original color was Agave; when I got it in 1996? it was Resedagrun... I think I still have the born on document from the old country. Kevin

Hi Kevin!

It is a small Baur world, indeed! Thank you for posting! Always great to hear some of the history of the car! Agave, Resedagrun, and now Inka!

Do you have any other info on the car, such as the VIN, perhaps?

I will add it to the listing on this map:

Tom: I can't seem to find the Birth Certificate, but I did find the VIN jotted down on something... 2795740. I used to hear a lot of speculation about how if it was a model 71 that was made in late 72 then why did it have square tail lights and a model 73 front clip. There, the strangeness stopped, though as the rest of the car seemed correct for a model 71. At one point the guy that bought it in Chicago got in touch and insisted that the front and rear clips had been altered. About a month later he called back to say he and his local wizards in Chicago now thought it had not been altered. The only horrible thing that was done to the car (when it was still owned by the used car salesman in Kresfeld (SP?)) was someone put a tinted moonroof in the Targa lid... Think about that one... It takes all kinds. Can't say I'm in love with the Inka either... But that's just me... I enjoy the stuff you post, by the way; keep up the Lord's work! Kevin
