April 22nd Newsletter


     
  Hi Everyone,

I hope you all are enjoying this awesome Spring weather we are having. This is much better than the rainy days or instant heat waves we had going on over the last couple of weeks. I just LOVE IT!!! Springtime in California, I wouldn't want to be any place else. We'd also like to wish everyone a very "Hoppy" Easter, whether you're going to a Sunday brunch, or getting together with family or just staying home hunting for Easter eggs, we wish you lots of fun...more chocolate than you can eat...the ability to find all the hidden eggs before June.

I'd also like to remind you about the Cool Cruise and 4th Annual Chili-Cook-off this Sat April 23rd in Old Town La Verne from 10am - 2pm. If you don't already have plans I recommend you make it out to this show, I've gone the past few years and it's a really great event, with hundreds of cars, lots of good food and a great band, The Answer, playing live music. We will be out there again this year, roaming around and taking pictures, so be sure to say HI. Now let's look ahead to what's coming up. The Show & Go in Downtown Riverside is Fri April 29th - Sun May 1st. The events times are Fri from 5pm - 10pm with a cruise and BBQ from 6pm - 10pm. Sat from 7am - 5pm with an open header cruise from 11am - 4pm and an open header contest from 3pm - 4pm. And Sun 8am - 2pm with a cruise from 8am - 1pm. This is a HUGE event and you probably wont be able to see the whole thing in 1 day. I've gone to this one before and I highly suggest you try and make it out there at least 1 day. The weekend of April 29th - May 1st is the Western Street Rod Nationals plus at the Kern County Fairgrounds in Bakersfield, put on by the National Street Rod Association. Times for the event are Fri 7:30am - 10:30pm, Sat 7:30am - 10:30pm and Sun 7:30am - 3pm, and for a list of each days events and times go to nsra-usa.com/media/eventinfo.

On Sat April 30th is the "Spring Breakout Cruise" at the Norco Bob's Big Boy form 5pm - 8pm. On Sun May 1st is the 10th Annual PC Booster's Car Show at Pomona Catholic High School from 9am - 2:30pm. This show is open to Classics, Rods, Customs, Muscle Cars, Trucks and Motorcycles and will also include music by Groovetime Entertainment, a food court, a beer garden and a vendor section. This sounds like a really good time. Also on Sun Mat 1st is the 6th Annual Edelbrock Rev'ved Up 4 Kids event which benefits The Center For Learning Unlimited to help bring awareness and support for children with learning disabilities. The event is open to Classics, Trucks, Specialty Vehicles, Motorcycles and more and also will have live music, food and refreshments, a kids corner which will include face painting, a Hot Rodder of Tomorrow Engine Challenge, a beer garden and raffles throughout the day. It is held at Vic's Garage, 510 Madrid Ave in Torrance from 10am - 4pm. So here you go, this is what's know as a "full plate" weekend and I'm sure there's something for everybody. I would also like to take a minute and remind you of an upcoming event,the 17th Annual Inland Valley Street Rods Rally and Cruise on June 11th on Euclid in Ontario from 7am - 4pm, if you are interested in showing your car at this event the registration deadline is May 26th and you can stop by our location and pick up and enrty form.
