The show also has a flea market and car sales area.

A few months before the 2015 show, I saw an ad for another "municipal car show" on the counter of a local tire store, and decided to check that out. I found a total of perhaps two dozen cars, of which perhaps half were interesting. I expected the same from the Rockville show, but decided to go anyway because I was looking for a tool I hoped to find at the flea market.

I was wrong. I was totally blown away.

Someone brought a working Amphicar (and told me all about the experience of registering the same vehicle as both a car and a boat). I watched someone demonstrate the electric sliding doors on her Z1 and then walked downhill to a 1954 Kaiser Darrin (the first American car with a fiberglass body, and manual sliding doors...), which was next to an SLS AMG, after passing a Lotus Super 7 (the car Patrick McGoohan drives in the opening of The Prisoner, but this one was modified for autocross competition). I had a long chat with a guy who brought his wife's Alfa-Romeo 164 and another chat with a guy who brought his '71 Challenger Slat 6 and several long chats with the owners of a couple of CitroŽn DSes and a couple of CitroŽn 2CVs including one modified as a bakery van. I never got to talk to the owners of any of the dozen Panteras (never knew they made any with wings...) or the owner of the Cadillac V-16 or the Pierce-Arrow parked nearby, and hardly got to check out the Porsches at all, but darn it I just ran out of time.

Also, I had owned my E91 for six months, and conversations with the owners of the couple of dozen BMWs being shown convinced me to join BMWCCA and got me a membership brochure. (Thanks everybody!)

My point is, if the phrase "city municipal auto show" makes you think of a two-dozen-car affair, do not be misled. This show is FAR beyond that.

what model year bmws are allowed

Last year, someone showed a Mercedes SLS that was, if I recall correctly, three years old. They're not sticklers about age.

The show is open to vehicles up to and including the 1991 model year. You may bring your 2015 model to the show but it will not be permitted on the show field. You will have to park in the spectator lot. Occasional exceptions are made but they are usually for very low production, high dollar exotics.

James, if we pre-registered with the Rockville show site, do we need to do anything further to notify you or Paul or anyone else?? BTW, I have pre-registered my 3.0 CSi.

Another week of great weather means that this Saturday's Rockville Antique and Classic Car show should be awesome! The history of cars will be chronicled as 500+ are expected to display their cars of all makes and models.

If you have a vintage BMW (1991 and older), bring it out and be a part of this great show! Get there early and be a part of our display row of cars.
