European Car Show 2012 Coverage

 On Cinco de Mayo a large group of local European car owners converged on California Car Cover for our European Car Show 2012. It was a great event and could not have been possible without support from some local companies and promoters.
 All registered attendees had the chance to win awesome prizes from our show sponsors and vendors. Attendees had the chance to win gift certificates to ABD Racing Werks, T-Rex Grilles, Empire Fabrication, XPEL products, Golden Shine Car Care and many more.
 NOS Energy Drink was on hand giving out free samples and had a gaming center for show attendees to relax in the shade and play some video games.
 One of our event sponsors, Oktoberfest, was on hand to talk about the annual VW show in Big Bear. The event is a lot of fun, so hopefully we will see you up there on October 5-7. More information on the show can be seen on Facebook.
The Empire Fabrication crew from Simi Valley, Ca was on hand. They donated a gift certificate for some fabrication work to one lucky winner at the show.


 The show attracted a nice variety of late model European cars. From Audi R8s to Volkswagen GTIs to a few Porsche and Mercedes vehicles, the show brought in a nice mix of people to California Car Cover.

 There were quite a few new and classic Volkswagen vehicles on hand. All around the building at CCC there were groups of Volkswagen, Audi and Mini Cooper enthusiasts.

 Motoring Magic from Thousand Oaks, Ca was another event promoter. The crew at MM brought in a large group of Mini Cooper enthusiasts to the show.



 The registration tent drew people to the front lawn all day. We gave away prizes throughout the day to a lot of lucky winners. The event was free admission, so you just had to show up with a European car for a chance to win something cool for your vehicle or garage. Our Golden Shine Car Care Crew was also on hand demonstrating car care products.

 At the end of the day we gave out the last of the prizes. We had a lot of great items donated by our event supporters. As a thank you to everyone that attended, California Car Cover also donated a custom fit car cover to one lucky attendee and a 6-pack of Golden Shine Car Care products to another winner.
