Memorial Day 2010 First Drive 1982 323i BMW Baur Lapisblau M20 5 speed #4154 of 4595 made. The car was imported to California by Dietel Enterprises. I have since changed the wheels, installed the clear turn signal lenses, and I am in the process of installing a new cabriolet roof. I have to do something about those bumpers, too. :) I love this car! To see one of the reasons why, check my post "Score One For the Good Guys" on 6/26/2011.

Oktoberfest 2015: EAST COAST! 46th Annual BMW CCA Oktoberfest

 46th Annual BMW CCA Oktoberfest will be in New Jersey in 2015!  The announcement (below) was posted to my email today from BMW CCA.

The jagged peaks and brilliant desert vistas of Colorado made a stunning backdrop for 2014’s Oktoberfest show, but on the horizon, the latest chapter of the show’s story has been unveiled—the 46th Annual BMW CCA Oktoberfest Presented by Michelin. Hosted by the New Jersey Chapter and held from the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club venue, next year’s Oktoberfest trades the high-altitude adventure of Colorado’s Beaver Creek resort for the oceanside experience—and trackside thrill—of Absecon, New Jersey and New Jersey Motorsport Park.

The 46th Annual Oktoberfest will run from Monday, September 21 through Saturday, September 26, 2015, and will feature many of the events that longtime attendees have become familiar with at previous shows, including the renowned Pirelli Concours and the BMW CCA Foundation-sponsored golf tournament, both held this year on the grounds of the host resort. Other events like the Pirelli Throwback Thursday dinner and the gymkhana precision driving course will return too, each with new themes related to the event’s new location. Oktoberfest’s signature rallies and street driving events return as well, along with the Bridgestone Autocross, local area tours and activities in nearby Cape May, tech talks, dinners, and social events—and so does the German biergarten, which has proven to be a member favorite in all its forms.

Track drivers will appreciate access to the high-performance driving world with ample time at the modern and challenging New Jersey Motorsport Park circuits. Oktoberfest will be taking advantage of both tracks offered by NJMP, the first being the 2.25-mile Thunderbolt Raceway—a popular and challenging circuit with a dozen corners, a half-mile straightaway, and 40 acres of paddock space.
The second course, NJMP’s northern Lightning Raceway circuit, is a fast, 1.9-mile course with 10 exciting corners and numerous elevation changes, as well as a 20-acre paddock. Oktoberfest attendees will be able to take full advantage of NJMP’s facilities with four days of High Performance Driver Education clinics and Club Racing, with both circuits reserved by the BMW CCA for the event.
Car Show

The 46th Annual BMW CCA Oktoberfest Presented by Michelin offers the same exciting automotive experience as previous Oktoberfests enhanced by the dining, shopping, and attractions offered in the local area. Whether for the turn-of-the-century host hotel, the car shows and driving tours, the meals and social events with fellow members of the BMW enthusiast community, the numerous specialized vendor booths of our sponsors, the four days of intense, track-focused, high-performance driving, or any other surprises that have yet to be announced, 2015’s Oktoberfest looks to be a week of excitement and fun for any BMW enthusiast.
Oktoberfest registration and the host hotel room block will open in early 2015.
