For the second year The Vintage returns to Asheville, NC and we are more than ready this time. ¬†Hotels are expensive, and we all know E30 drivers belong in the wild anyway. So, for the second year in a row, E30 Chapter is going camping at the Vintage.An entire weekend of mountain roads, classic BMWs, and a camp on the shore of the French Broad River? That’s it, that’s what we’ll do.


This is the 14th annual event and one of the largest classic BMW gatherings in the world. What makes this event so special is that you won’t see a parking lot filled with trailers towing garage queens, this is a drivers’ event. BMWs of all shapes show up to celebrate our passion, collective obsession, and the spirit of our Bavarian Machines. The Vintage continues to grow and has become the principle event for restorers, racers, sponsors, vendors, artists, and hundreds of classic BMW owners. Record attendance is expected, as always. Record E30 attendance is guaranteed.


We will be staying right across the street from the Vintage show. We’ll have group campgrounds, a picnic shelter with electricity, and an amphitheater. Did I mention hot showers? We’ll have those, too. A million star hotel.
