Even after attending for three years in a row, SoCal Vintage never ceases to bring a smile to my face the second I pull in. Hosted at Woodley Park in Van Nuys, just outside of Los Angeles, SoCal Vintage is the mecca for classic BMWs - most from the 70s and 80s.
This 3.0CSL made it's debut after a lengthy, proper restoration to its original racing specifications.
Possibly the nicest Neue Klasse in existence, this BMW 1800 was perfectly restored to OEM+ specs. Sporting ALPINA wheels and engine upgrades, the car was a show-stopper, yet retained a mature, period-correct vibe.
SoCal Vintage is a must for any BMW enthusiast, whether you're showing your own car, or just there for the good company.
