Yeah!!!! Finally a date and a location. Here's to a great bimmerfest without all the traffic mess, and alot less dust. For those of you who have not attended in past, plan to get up early and stay late. Bring a camera and a few drinks. Hopefully we can have some food vendors (how about In N Out trailer) so we don't have to leave. Maybe we can go back to forming areas for same series cars. Now Jon just needs to make sure we have plenty of those hot models to make it a perfect fest.

Can't wait !!!!!!

there will be a registration here on this site so that the people running bimmerfest know how many people will be showing up. also parking last year was $20 IIRC.

so bring cash.

it will be a blast.

No, actually it's not. The car has a motor already designed for propulsion.

Last year was my first Bimmerfest, and it is worth attending. I hope to go this year, too.

I'm just curious....Have the recent wildfires in Santa Barbara come close to this area?

The most recent fire burned an area about 5 miles from Earl Warren Showgrounds.
