The Club’s mission is to promote the interest in, the ownership of, and preservation of classic BMWs, as well as to encourage their use and visibility. They do this mainly through the organization of and the participation in specific events, and the publication of a quarterly magazine THE ULTIMATE CLASSIC. They are in contact with other BMW clubs in order to keep members abreast of events and happenings in the US as well as abroad. A strong emphasis is being place on social contacts between members. The Club also maintains a register of members and their cars.
