The following was passed on to me from a friend at my local BMW Dealership. This is the first year they will have a BMW division. They usually have plenty of M-B and Porsche and Guy Young has been after them for years to start a BMW division. They finally have, so we want to make it successful. Guy Young can be contacted at (215) 340-3900 about the BMW division. You can also e-mail me and I will get you any show information. <p><br>BMW DIVISION INTRODUCED AT NEW HOPE AUTO SHOW<p> NEW HOPE, PA - A special invitation us being extended to members of the BMW Car Club of America (non-members welcome also) to compete in the 43rd Annual New Hope Automobile Show on August 14th and 15th, in New Hope, Pennsylvania.<br> Since the first show in 1957, the event has become a summer tradition for antique automobile owners in the mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States.
