O.k. gang, in a nutshell our plan is to feature different BMW's each hour, with four separate segments as follows:


7:00 am - The Oldest, Classic or Antique, Vintage BMWs.

8:00 am - The Most Expensive, Custom, Modified BMWs

9:00 am - The Newest, Stock BMWs.

1:00 pm - The Bimmerfest Event with more examples of vehicles that will be competing or on display at Bimmerfest.


So far, many of you have expressed an interest in joining us for this unique opportunity, and have posted in this thread. Nonetheless, please repost your intentions here in this thread...

PLEASE help me coordinate this "mini-event" by following-up with a post in this thread specifying your name or "handle", and a ultra-brief description of your BMW automobile. BMW motorcycles might be cool too!

Last year's turnout was phenomenal, let's do it again!!!

Below are a few random images that I captured last year.

PLEASE SIGN UP BELOW>>>>
this is my second time attending an now I find out there's a "pre- bfest"? lol

Thank you to everyone who showed up today. It was great for me to combine 2 of my passions in one morning.....My job and BMWs. I just saw the segments on my DVR and they looked great. See you at Bimmerfest tomorrow.

Great KTLA clips, but what was up with the "peeling out" sounds in the backround?
Have fun y'all, time for me to get ready to go to a wedding. (not mine)

I was in attendance at the pre-bimmerfest event last year. I couldn't make it this year. Nor will I be attending tomorrow's festivities. Nonetheless, I have this year's clips in HD on my computer and will upload them shortly.
