3rd Annual European Car Show at California Car Cover


We kicked off the 2014 Car Show Series at California Car Cover this past Saturday with our 3rd Annual European Car Show presented by dubNation.com. We had an incredible showing as our headquarters was completely filled with new and classic European cars all day.





Volkswagen enthusiasts of all sizes were at the show.


Our friends from Last Sunday were on hand for the show all day.



Webb from Webb Starrs Motoring brought out a couple of nice VWs.




The guys from dubNation and Empire Fabrication showed off their handy work on the front lawn.


Attendees enjoyed food and drinks from our friends at All American Softy and the Slider Rider food truck. Thank you to these great vendors for supporting our European Car Show.



The highlight of the morning was the unveiling of dubNation's Projekt T4.


We were honored that Bernie from dubNation and Sean from Empire Fabrication would have the initial unveiling of the Eurovan at our European Car Show. The van still has some interior mods to complete, but it looks great (& pretty low) for now.




Our rear parking lot was packed all day with cars. Thank you to everyone for being patient as we tried to safely park as many cars in our facility as possible.






Big thanks to our friends at Haskell's Auto Body next door to our store. The new owners there were gracious enough to let us park cars in their lot. We definitely needed the space there and even the parking lot adjacent to their business. It was the largest turn out we have ever had at the European Car Show.










Solo Werks was back again as an event sponsor. The guys at Solo Werks donated a suspension kit to our charity prize raffle. We were glad to have them back this year.

Complex Ink from Moopark, Ca was on hand. They do some incredible vinyl wraps and even donated a certificate towards a vehicle wrap for our charity raffle.

The car show could not be possible without a list of amazing sponsors. Our show vendors and raffle prize donors all make the California Car Cover European Car Show possible.
We raffled off over a dozen prizes during the show. We were able to raise $500 for Friends & Helpers, a charity that helps victims of abuse in Southern California.

We had incredible prizes from Shop-Vac, Race Ramps, Intro-Tech Automotive, Golden Shine Car Care, Cal Trend, Solo Werks, Pasttime Signs, Gaphix, Complex Ink, PitStop Furniture, Metro Vac, Slick Stixxx, License Frame Inc, eco-shine, M2 Diecast, Colgan Custom, Dr Color Chip, Weathertech, Beach Filters, Webb Starrs Motoring and many more.

Our friends at Gas Pods were on hand demonstrating the benefits of their fuel mileage improving roof pods.




Winner, Winner!

Not sure what is going on here, but thanks to @speed927 for posting a photo of these diehard photographers getting the perfect shot.

It was a beautiful day in Chatsworth, so plenty of dogs were out at the show. @airedoutvw caught this bulldog enjoying the shade at the car show.
