California Car Cover's European Car Show 2013

This past Saturday California Car Cover kicked off its 2013 Car Show Series. Between April and October California Car Cover will host six unique events for every auto enthusiast. On Saturday, we hosted our 2nd Annual European Car Show presented by dub-nation. The event attracted a number of European car enthusiasts from all over the Southern California area.



Our friends from Fusion Motorsports brought over a pair of exotics



The show was just not for new cars. We had a number of vintage British and German automobiles on display







 For most of the day, the parking lot at California Car Cover was filled with Audi, VW, BMW and Porsche automobiles. It was a nice opportunity to talk with many long time California Car Cover customers and fellow European car enthusiasts. The show was free to attend for car owners as well as the general public.
 Our friends from eco-shine auto reconditioning were on hand doing Golden Shine Car Care product demonstrations and handing out Golden Shine samples. Another one of our event sponsors, Solo Werks, was on hand talking about their suspension components.




Even a few vintage Volkswagen vehicles were at the show.

We were pleased to have Los Angeles based food truck, Dogtown Dogs, on hand as our official lunch provider. The guys were serving up fantastic hot dogs and tater tots all day. They will also be back for our Chevy Camaro Show in June.


 Here are a few photos of the car shows from above all the action.








A big thanks for such a great turnout at the show is due to Bernie Chacon and the crew at dub-nation. Bernie did an excellent job of getting the word out for our car show.We spent the last few months promoting the show and were thrilled to see the parking lot packed all day.

 Big thanks to Solo Werks. The suspension company generously donated a coil over suspension kit to our prize raffle. It was a big hit with all of the show attendees and helped California Car Cover raised some money for charity as well. We were glad to have them on board as an event sponsor. (This was also my favorite photo from the show, because of the kid in the background with the box on his head).





California Car Cover could not put on such events without the support of the event sponsors. All of them donated great items to the prize raffle. We had raffle prize donations from Park n Place, Weathertech, Glass Master and Park Smart. Raffle prizes were donated by Solo Werks, Golden Shine Car Care, Shop-Vac, Metro Vac, Lloyd Mats, XPEL, Dash Designs, Rim Fix LA and California Car Cover.
 Every attendee was entered into the door prize drawing and given a raffle ticket towards the larger prizes. Extra raffle tickets were sold to raise money for Movember, a charity that promotes men's health initiatives. California Car Cover has been a proud supporter of Movember for many years and was able to raise a $250 donation for Movember at the European Car Show.
