30th Annual CPW Spring Fling XXX Chrysler Car Show 2016

The 30th Annual Chrysler Performance West Spring Fling took place this past weekend. The event attracts hundreds of new and old Chrysler vehicles to Woodley Park in Van Nuys, Ca. The two-day car show features a large swap meet, show & shine, plus awards ceremony on Sunday. The California Car Cover Crew was on hand again in a Midway vendor. Below are some photos from the weekend.

It wasn't just 1960's era Chrysler vehicles at the Spring Fling. There were a number of late model cars and trucks including this pretty clean 1989 Dodge Pickup Shelby edition.

A large group of vintage Plymouth Superbird and Dodge Daytona cars were on display at the CPW Spring Fling.

Thank you to everyone at Chrysler Performance West for the hospitality. It was a fun weekend for the California Car Cover Crew to interact with some Mopar enthusiasts. We will see everyone at the Fall Fling!

Our of our most popular car care kits is the Golden Shine Show Tote Kit. It includes everything you will need to make your classic shine when you get to a car show. Golden Shine car care products, plush microfiber towels and a convenient open top tote bag, make this the perfect car care kit to keep in the trunk.

Dust Happens! A California Car Duster product is a garage staple no matter what type of vehicle you drive. There are a few different styles of their popular car dusters, such as the California Super Duster shown above. The Super Duster features an extra long handle and 360 degree cotton mop with the signature baked-in wax treatment. The car duster safely lifts dust from your vehicle's paint. Use a California Car Duster daily to maintain your vehicle in between car washes.

Suffering from a lack of suds? The Tornador Foam Gun solves that problem by combining car wash soap and compressed air. Simply add some car wash to the Tornador, connect it to your air compressor and watch the foam fly. The Tornador will cover your vehicle in a thick blanket of soapy foam. Check out the California Car Cover website to see a video of it in action.

Time to rinse? Our collection of Bon-Aire ultimate hose nozzles are adjustable, durable and compact. The hose nozzles featured either aluminum or stainless steel construction with rubber casing. Simply twist the adjustable hose nozzle to adjust the flow of water.

You cannot detail your vehicle without some premium microfiber towels. California Car Cover offers a variety of microfiber towels to wax, polish, dry or detail your vehicle.

When you are working under the hood, reach for a Fender Gripper fender cover. These cushioned fender covers are made of a unique fabric that keeps the fender cover in place without the use of weights, tabs or magnets. Fender Gripper fender covers feature many different licensed automobile logos.

Roll around the garage on our Heavy Duty Garage Creeper Seat. This seat has smooth rolling casters to easily maneuver around the garage. The wide padded seat provides plenty of comfort while you are detailing your car.

Corvette NCRS Spring Inspection Event at California Car Cover

The Southern California Chapter of the National Corvette Restorer's Society (NCRS) held their Spring Judged Meet at California Car Cover last Saturday. For the past few months, we have been working with our friends and customers at the NCRS to host this meet and make it a nice get-together for all Corvette enthusiasts. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and we had to improvise a bit to accommodate all of the vehicles being judged and inspected. We still had a great Saturday at the office even if we did get a little wet.

The event was supposed to be an outdoor show and inspection in our SoCal sunshine. Fortunately, our California Car Cover Crew was on not working on the road last weekend, so we had some E-Z Up canopies available to use. Part of the judging involves an idle test and engine inspection, so cars were being checked rain or shine. 

A few generations of Corvettes waiting for judging.

The California Car Cover Crew worked late on Friday night to clear enough space for event attendees to have their vehicles inspected indoors out of the rain. There were even a few members of the club that traveled down from Canada to participate in the meet.

Thank you to Don, Beverly and everyone at the Southern California Chapter of the NCRS for having their event at California Car Cover. Hopefully, next time around we can get a little more sunshine.

Porsche Luftgekuhlt 2016 at Modernica Furniture in Los Angeles

Luftgekuhlt 2016 was held at the Modernica Furniture factory in Vernon, Ca.

On Sunday morning, I cruised down to Luftgekuhlt just south of downtown Los Angeles. It was my first time at the event and it was an impressive display of Porsche history. The event is open to all air-cooled Porsche automobiles so there were plenty of classic race cars and well maintained street cars on display.

There were plenty of people and classics at the Modernica facility on Sunday.

Luftgekuhlt attracted a wide variety of colors and models of Porsche.

Spectators enjoying the event from the beer garden.

Yes, Porsche powered.

Of course, the team behind the event made sure everyone got together for a good cause. RM Sotheby's coordinated an auction of a 1985 Porsche 911 rally edition at the event to raise funds for pancreatic cancer research.

Luftgekuhlt was an impressive event and I look forward to being back next year to cover it.
Hopefully, the California Car Cover Crew has a weekend off from the road so I can be back in 2017.
