Board and Staff
The BMW Car Club of America, Los Angeles Chapter was founded in 1970. Since then the club has evolved to become one of the largest automobile enthusiast’s clubs in North America. Today, with over 3,500 members, our club enjoys a number of club sponsored events, contests, and offers a great way to meet new friends who appreciate our very own ultimate driving machines.
In addition to the National’s monthly Roundel, the BMW CCA Los Angeles Chapter publishes its own quarterly magazine: The Whispering Bomb. Since October 1970, it has been carrying information about our club and BMW’s many successes throughout the world. Join our club to receive your copy of The Whispering Bomb!
