3rd Annual Galpin Ford Custom Car Show






The 3rd Annual Galpin Ford Custom Car Show took place yesterday in Van Nuys, Ca. Galpin, one of the largest Ford dealers in the country, packed classic cars and customs around its property just off the 405 freeway.









The car show was an opportunity for Galpin to showcase its car collection, Galpin Auto Sports car customization center and attract new auto enthusiasts to the dealership.The Galpin museum was open to all attendees. The museum holds many popular vehicles from television and movies, plus vehicles from the Galpin collection.





It was a very hot day in Southern California, but plenty of people still came out to the car show and BBQ. MB2 go karts set up a race track at the event, plus there were plenty of activities for kids.







Even though the event was held at Galpin Ford, it was not a Ford only event. Plenty of other Chevy car clubs were at the event too.



There were plenty of Ford Mustangs, new and old, at the show.














Thank you to everyone at Galpin Ford for the hospitality and for hosting another great event. Check back next week for highlights from the California Car Cover Parking Lot Sale & Swap Meet.

Shelby Automobile Marque at the September Supercar Sunday


This past Sunday was the Shelby marque at Supercar Sunday in Woodland Hills, Ca. The marque attracted hundreds of people, and their cars of course, to the Westfield Promenade. There were plenty of Shelby Cobras, Mustangs and Ford GT40s on display in the featured parking.

The California Car Cover Crew was on hand to talk car care and promote our upcoming events: the 6th Annual Parking Lot Sale and the 3rd Annual Classic GM Car Show.


There were mostly late model Ford GTs at Supercar Sunday, but there were a handful of vintage ones like this.



You cannot have a Shelby marque day without a number of Cobra roadsters showing up.

The California Car Cover booth





At every Supercar Sunday, there are always 100s of classic cars, exotics, muscle cars and hot rods to check out. There is something for everyone, which has made SCS such a popular destination on Sunday mornings. 






Thanks again to Dustin at Connected Media and everyone at Supercar Sunday for the hospitality. The CCC Crew will be on the road for the next few Supercar Sunday events, but check back for more car show coverage in the coming weeks.


Southern California Chevy Corvette Clubs at California Car Cover


Just over two weeks ago a number of Chevy Corvette owners stopped by California Car Cover as a their official rendezvous point for an upcoming road trip. A number of Chevy Corvette owners from the west coast drove back to the National Corvette Homecoming in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
 
 We were thankful that the local Corvette clubs thought our facility would be the ideal place for Vette enthusiasts to meet up. It was a great sight for all of our local customers and employees.




The California Car Cover parking lot was packed with late model Chevy Corvettes. It was quite a sight for Corvette enthusiasts.

California Car Cover's COO, Jimmy DeFrank, second from the left, hosted lunch for all attendees.





Before heading out to Ontario, Ca to meet up with other Chevy Corvette owners from all over California, the drivers received a game plan for the rest of the day.

Thank you to all of the Chevy Corvette owners who stopped by our store. We hope that everyone enjoyed their trip to Kentucky and back.
