Autorama    4/28/2023 through 4/30/2023
Location:  Cal Expo Fair Grounds April
Our club is hoping to take 5-7 cars of different Model A body styles. This is a three day event and you will leave your car inside Building 7 for the entire time without moving it once it is parked, and you must have a 1/4 tank of gas in your tank. I will make a rotation list of members who will work the counter each day — that way you don’t have to be there all three days unless you wish to. Our cars will be under security watch all night and we have never had any problems in the past.
