Neue Klasse und Kaffee
Neue Klasse und Kaffee is a monthly gathering for the Vintage cars of all makes and models in the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento, CA organized by BMW 2002 FAQ. We meet on the third Saturday of every month between 8:00am and 11:00am at Loma Coffe Bar in Los Gatos, CA and third Sunday of every month at Market 5 one 5 in Sacramento, CA It is a small group of people who enjoy our cars as much as we enjoy conversations with other fellow drivers. The gathering gets a large number of BMW 1600s, BMW 2002s, Tourings, and other Neue Klasse cars. Other manufacturers are welcome, especially if you have something classic.
0BayArea 02 Swap & Show is completely cancelled for 2020-- see notes below.
As before, the address is 500 Sierra Point Parkway, along the Bay on the North side of Sierra Point. Preregister on Motorsportreg (see link below). Preregistration is $25 while the on-site fee on 2 May will be $30. Kile Brekke continues to show his artistic flare with the graphics and has again added his art for our T-shirts and printed materials; we expect the shirts, posters and cards to be popular once again! Please preregister early to help us plan. Preregistration will open on 1 March at [Preregistration for Swap & Show-2020 on MotorsportREG]. We expect it to end on 26 April 2020, so do NOT plan on a last-minute signup (we need a few days to get stuff ready...).
Note— Swap & Show visitors are welcome! There is no fee for entry if you do not show your car or swap parts. However, we strongly encourage anyone with a BMW of our vintage to bring your car to display, no matter how mundane your daily driver (dirt, rust and all, which may be surprisingly photogenic) or how Instagram-friendly your restoration. There is no judging your car so there will be no points for extra dirt, missing dirt, artistic (!?) rust or matching luggage. We smile at all BMW's and photographs or videos are welcome (but NO drones over cars)!
For any of you who are preregistered you can request a refund by sending an e-mail request to [[email protected]].
Like so many other events, Swap & Show-2020 was postponed until 12 September. Although in May and June the pandemic seemed to be waning, by mid July it's rising again and the county and state governments give no hint of allowing even outdoor semi-large events.
Please mark your calendars for 12 December for another Not the 49-mile Drive (perhaps social distanced but food is a question mark right now) and 1 May 2021 for the next Swap & Show at the Brisbane Marina.
