The Nittany Bimmers are hosting a BMW CCA Regional Event in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Last year we had a great turn out so we are planning for an even larger BMW show field this year. Owners can exhibit their cars, socialize with members, and see the over 1,700 unique and stunning imported vehicles of current and historic makes. Nittany Bimmers plan to have discussion sessions, BMW technical information, and car care presentations by some of our vendors in our expanded covered tent area. There will also be vendors for performance products, car care products, a flea market, and accessories displayed throughout the infield show area. Several Import & Performance Nationals exhibition events are also planned. This will include drive through judging, autocross, drifting, exhaust competition, and more.

For those who come into town early before the show, we are planning to meet at the Rolls Royce Foundation Museum on Thursday, May 9th in nearby Mechanicsburg. ( 

There will also be options for tour visits to the amazing Antique Automobile Club of America Museum in Hershey ( One tour is planned for Saturday afternoon and a second tour is being offered Sunday morning.

A BMW CCA group dinner is also being arranged for Saturday evening. Details for the dinner are provided below. Please consider joining us for this a great weekend experience where you will display your car on our show field with fellow enthusiasts, meet other owners, and see a variety of cars at this special event.
