Another Sunday Drive

Yesterday (6/5/11) I took a drive to Arroyo, PR to meet with some friends and have a day of BBQ and chilling out at the beach. It was cloudy, but I didn't get a drop of rain until almost home. One of the first things I need to take care of on the Baur are the top seals, which are all either cracked or missing portions. Supposedly they are available, so it's a matter of getting the funds together to buy them.

Here's a pic from yesterday:

Maybe by next weekend I'll start to do some actual work on the car. In the meantime, I've enjoyed it quite a bit on its first two weekend in Puerto Rico.

The Caribbean Baur!

Well, the Baur finally arrived in Puerto Rico on 5/26/11. I drove it from Deltona to Jacksonville, FL, where it was loaded on a barge and shipped to the island.

After paying freight ($1100.00) and excise taxes ($800.00) on the day after the car arrived, I took a drive across the island and back on Sunday May 29 to the Exotic Car Show in the town of Anasco. People there liked the car and asked many questions about it, since it is now the only known E21 Baur in the island.

Here's the obligatory pic of the car at the show:
