CCC Gives Back

We have a lot of fun working at California Car Cover and the holidays let us have a chance to give back to the community. November means Thanksgiving is near and Christmas is just around the corner. It also means that it is officially, Movember. Movember is a charity has been around since 2003. It raises awareness on prostate cancer and proudly supports the LIVESTRONG Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation. You can find out more about the organization on their website: http://www.movember.com.
California Car Cover has been a supporter of the cause since last year. Basically, men try to raise awareness, and funds, by growing a moustache all month long. This year, quite a few sales associates are growing 'staches in support. If you would like to make a donation or see some photos, check out our CCC Movember page:

In fact, anyone that makes over a $5 donation will receive some Golden Shine decals and a limited edition Moustache Key Chain constructed of car cover fabric. California Car Cover is going to match any funds raised during the month of November.
California Car Cover is also a proud supporter of Friends & Helpers, a local charity that assists victims of domestic violence. We will be hosting a toy drive for the organization through December 3rd to collect toys for the children in families affected by abuse. Anyone that donates a toy will receive a 4 oz. sample bottle of our popular Golden Shine Quick Shine Detail Spray.

One Sunday, Two Shows

One Sunday, Two Shows
Sunday, September 26th, 2010

The California Car Cover sales crew was covering the San Fernando Valley this past Sunday. First thing on Sunday morning, we set up shop at the latest installment of Super Car Sunday. The featured makes for this show were the Shelby Cobra and Dodge Viper. Plenty of each were on hand.

SCS always attracts a wide range of classic or exotic automobiles from all over Los Angeles. The show only runs from 6a-10a so you have to get there early to see everything before they drive off.

See the Super Car Sunday website for more details and the next event date at www.supercarsunday.com
While SCS was wrapping up, our other crew was gearing up at DMP Fasteners Open House in Chatsworth, Ca. The event drew many local customers of DMP and even California Car Cover. There were plenty of familiar faces and autos at the show.

Plenty of unique cars, a local rock n' roll band and an In N' Out Burger truck kept the crowd happy for a few hours even though it was pretty hot.

Labor Day Cruisin'

Over the Labor Day weekend, the Orange County Cruise takes place in Costa Mesa, Ca. California Car Cover has been a vendor there for many years. I decided to swing by the show on Sunday and take a few photos of some of the cool cars in attendance.

This truck and trailer combo is at the event every year. It is something else to see.
A nice convertible Cadillac.

Red was a popular paint color at the show.
I am a big fan of Chevy II's, no matter the condition.

After the show, I decided to drive over to Newport and cruise my beach cruiser around Balboa. Leaving the Balboa Ferry stop, I spotted this classic wagon. After walking around the wagon I noticed a few California Car Covers in the garage.
I talked to the car owner for a few minutes and found out he has quite a car collection, all of which are covered with our car covers.
Both being fans of classic GM vehicles, we talked cars for a few minutes before I got on the road and let him get back to work. I always enjoy seeing our CCC logo when I am out of the office.

The Redster Unveiling and Super Car Sunday

One of the perks of working at California Car Cover is the opportunity to check out some cool automotive events. Here are some examples of the unique events we get to cover while working for CCC.

The guys at Cinema Vehicle Services and Fireball Time Entertainment invited us to the unveiling of Fireball Tim's latest creation, The Redster. A while back, the manager of Fireball Tim Entertainment asked me if we could make a cover for a top secret project vehicle. After looking at some sketches and hearing what they were looking for, we were on board.
The unveiling of the Redster took place at the Cinema Vehicle Services museum. CVS and Fireball Tim are both based in Souther California and influential in the movie industry. These guys are responsible for supplying the ordinary and extraordinary vehicles you see in many movies and TV shows. Many of the cars that the companies have produced were on display at the unveiling.
The original Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters.

Back to the Future DeLorean, complete with Sports Almanac and Flux Capacitor.

The Redster was built as a new promotional vehicle for Auto Trader Classics. The Chevy truck features many unique and custom touches.
Many local auto enthusiasts and TV personalities were on hand for the debut.

The Redster has tonneau cover that raises to unveil a group of touchscreen Sony VAIO computers so customers can research vehicles on Auto Trader Classic's website.
Thank you to everyone and Cinema Vehicles Services and both John and Tim at Fireball Tim Entertainment for letting us participate.

Yesterday was the last Sunday of the month which meant time for Super Car Sunday. SCS has grown into the place to be on Sunday morning if you are a car nut. On the last Sunday, So Cal locals meet up at the Westfield Promenade in Woodland Hills, Ca from 6am-1030am. The Golden Shine and CCC crew is always on hand to demonstrate products and hand out catalog.
Each show, a particular vehicle make is the featured brand and gets preferred parking. This past Sunday the featured car was Porsche, so it was row after row of 911s and a few other unique models.

Once the sun comes out, the people come out. The prime time is always between 8-9am.

Hopefully see you at the next show.
