The club meeting location is in Yucaipa, California, which is in the foothills about 80 miles due east of Los Angeles, and we have members from all over the Inland Empire. Our cars run the complete gauntlet of all makes and all stages of restoration. We are looking for a few good folks who may be interested in joining our organization. To that end, we would like to tell you about ourselves and some of our activities.
Our members are from every sort of background and employment, but our common interest is the love of the classic automobiles and music of the 50’s and 60’s. There are no requirements as to what kind of classic or hot rod you drive. In fact, you don’t even need to own a classic to be a member.
Every month from April through November, we sponsor a Family Cruise Night at the Von’s Shopping Center in Yucaipa. There is NO ENTRY FEE to enter this show, but we do limit entries to pre-1980’s vehicles. This is held on the first Friday of the month and features some great fifties and sixties oldies music, a raffle, 50/50 raffle, games and prizes, and some really nice awards for the cars brought out that evening. This Cruise Night draws anywhere from 170 to 230 cars. The shopping center is on the Northeast corner of Yucaipa Boulevard and Oak Glen Road, and the bank is at the far east end of the center. It’s possible you have visited our show with your car and we hope you enjoyed your visit and invite you to return.
Other club activities include outings to interesting destinations. Many are car oriented, but some are just interesting. At Christmas we enjoy a club dinner with gift exchange. We also participate in the Lions Club Christmas parade. We also have cruised to Peterson’s Car Museum in Hollywood, Peggy Sue’s Diner outside of Barstow, and have participated in the Los Angeles County Fair by cruising in and showing our cars at the Fairgrounds. The club is always looking for new things to visit.
Our business meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at Wildwood Canyon Villas at 6:30 PM. This facility was gracious enough to allow us to use one of their meeting rooms. The address is 33951 Colorado Street, Yucaipa, CA. Check the map for the location. If coming down the I-10 freeway, exit Live Oak Canyon / Oak Glen Road and proceed east past Calimesa Boulevard. The next right about 3/4 of a mile up further and it will be Colorado Street. Take Colorado Street until you see the very large WILDWOOD CANYON VILLAS building on the right.
Our club also is involved in raising funds for various charities throughout the Inland Empire.
Please read our Membership Application Page and give some consideration to joining our group. Our plans for this next year include some really great adventures. We invite you to be a guest at any of our meetings or shows anytime. We hope to see you soon.
