Our friends at the BMW CCA Foundation have again set up an amazing open house event for the Friday of Vintage Weekend.  Get your tickets now for The Heroes of Bavaria:  75 Years of BMW Motorsport on Friday, May 19th.

Click here to get your tickets and for more information.  This is a separate, sister event for The Vintage and tickets are NOT included with your Vintage registration.  Only 300 tickets are available and they will sell out quick!  Tickets are $20 each and benefit the BMW CCA Foundation with preserving BMW and BMW CCA history.

An Amazing Weekend!

The Vintage 2016 was without a doubt our most successful one to date!  Thank you to everyone who made it to the show.  The people make this show…the cars help a bit to!  If you couldn’t make it this year or didn’t get to register before we hit capacity, please enjoy this fantastic video show by the talented folks over at (and check out some of the awesome BMW schtuff they sell!)  We will DEFINITELY see you next year!



Registration is now almost full!


Due to a simply overwhelming registration response this year we will be capping registration at 500 participants.  We can’t even believe we are saying this, the most we’ve had in the past is 329!  Due to space restrictions at the host venue we absolutely have to limit it to 500 cars.  You MUST register online. THERE WILL BE NO ON SITE REGISTRATION!  We just won’t have the extra space we had planned on.  If you have not registered online you will not be able to park at the host venue.

Thank you for your understanding and for the incredible unbelievably massive interest we had this year!

Hot Springs Event location and event info

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about where the main event is being held in Hot Springs, NC on Saturday, May 21st.  Firstly, Scott has posted this online magazine with all the schtuff you need to know about The Vintage 2016!

Hot Springs Resort and Spa will be the event location.  They have a large open space with plenty of room for vintage BMWs.  We will be posting a map of the event space layout as soon as we have it arranged.  Since this is the first time we’ve had the event here AND we’ve had a huge bump up in attendance, we’ve had to rearrange a bit from our first layout.  Spectators are welcome and there is no admission fee if you aren’t showing a vintage BMW on the field.  However, we ask that spectators please park in the town of Hot Springs on public streets as no non-vintage BMWs will be allowed to park on the field…we just won’t have the space.  The town is just a block or two away from the event space as you will see on the map link below.

Check out this Google Maps link for a satellite view of the location.  The Resort and Spa are towards the back of the field near the river.  The spa will be open during the event and no BMW parking will be allowed in the gravel lot.  If you would like to spend some time in the spa and hot springs, please use the link above to the Resort to contact them for a reservation.

Thanks and more info coming soon!!!
