Our June 2014 California Car Cover features a great looking 1956 Chevy Convertible. The Chevy is owned by local customer Sean Cassar of Moorpark, Ca. This Chevy has many custom touches.

The Chevy features a custom 510 cubic inch fuel injected engine.

Air Ride suspension puts the Chevy on the ground when needed.

Large Billet Specialties wheels and Baer Brakes make sure the Chevy looks good and stops too.

Volkswagen Fastivus 2014 at Willow Springs Raceway

It sure was windy, but that didn't stop these VW owners.

This Memorial Day weekend, Fastivus took over the Willow Springs International Raceway in Rosamond, Ca. This event is geared towards the Volkswagen enthusiasts. Fastivus features a Show & Shine, track events and many other activities to promote the love of VW vehicles.

California Car Cover was an event supporter for the 2nd straight year, so the CCC Crew headed out to the Show & Shine on Saturday to see our colleagues at the track.

Our friends at eco-shine & dubNation were on hand to talk car care and accessories with the VW owners.

The event is sponsored by a number of premium aftermarket companies, like APR, Accu Air and Galpin Volkswagen. Volkswagen of America even sent out executives to the show to talk to attendees and showcase some of their latest vehicles.

One of the cool events on Saturday afternoon. Everyone at the show was able to participate in the group photo whether they have a Volkswagen or not. A few hundred cars packed the front straightaway at Willow Springs for a huge group photo.

The big draw of the weekend is the World Famous Raffle on Saturday. All event sponsors contributed a fantastic prize to the drawing. Volkswagen owners are only allowed (1) raffle ticket, so they pick wisely and hope for some good luck.

Thanks again for the hospitality from everyone at Fastivus. It was a little windy, but the California Car Cover Crew still had a good time with friends and colleagues.

Check back next week for highlights from the June Pomona Swap Meet and the latest from CCC.

GM Muscle Car Show at California Car Cover

Our GM Muscle Car Show took place this past Saturday at California Car Cover. It was the second event in our 2014 Car Show Series. The show attracted a number of classic and late model General Motors muscle cars to our event.

There were plenty of Gen5 Camaros at the show from Southern California Camaro clubs.

Just one of the handful of clean Chevy Nova vehicles at the show.

There were also a number of great looking Chevy Chevelles on display at the car show.

The show brought out all years of GM vehicles, including a few 1950's era Chevys.

One of our local customers Chevy Camaro COPO edition got a lot of attention when it was fired up.

Our friends from Cal West Radiator were on hand

It was another busy day in our unique retail store.

The free car show was also able to raise money for local charities. Our great vendors donated amazing door prizes that we gave out and raffled to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project and the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission. We were able to raise $250 for these charities on Saturday.

We received great donations from many companies, such as Race Ramps, Merrick, Bravo Sports, Shop Vac, Dr. Color Chip and many others. Below are some of the great companies that donated prizes to our GM Muscle Car Show:

The team at the Keep on Grubbin' Food Truck served up lunch to the attendees.
