Classic Cars at the June 3-5, 2011, Goodguys Concours?
By Lynn Kissel
The Northern California Region of the Classic Car Club of America has been invited to display our cars in a Concours d' Elegance at the Goodguys 18th Summer Get-Together, June 3-5, 2011, at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton.
As many of you know, the past focus of Goodguys shows has been hot rods and custom cars. But for a second year, they are reaching out to the larger collector car community and soliciting exhibition of unmodified and classic cars at their Summer Get Together. In addition to NorCal CCCA, several other area car clubs have been invited to participate. This special concours will be strictly limited to 50 cars so it’s in your interest to register early.
For those of you who have never attended a Goodguys show, I think you will be impressed by the large and youthful crowds that they draw. Many of us can point to a particular past event, often as a young person, that planted the seed that grew and blossomed to our current interest in classic cars. I believe that this show can be one of those rare opportunities for us to share our passion with others, helping to plant that seed in a new generation of collectors. I consider my participation as an act of enlightened self interest and an investment in the future of our hobby.
Goodguys is waiving the $35 early registration show charge for NorCal CCCA participants and providing us with premium indoors exhibit space.
This concours is not being judged.
They will also provide us with booth space so that we can promote our club, our cars and our activities. National CCCA has offered to provide us with additional resources that will significantly enhance our efforts to project the sense of quality and professionalism that we associate with classic cars.
