California Car Events, Automobile Shows, Races


 

California Car Events include classic car shows, woody cars, Grand Prix auto racing, hot rod events and more. 

 

California car shows and events largely go uncounted in the massive list of California event lists, but they actually fill the roster as some of the biggest, most popular gatherings, and their numbers are staggering. If you take a single event such as the Donut Derelicts weekly meet in Huntington Beach, that's 52 events per year, alone! Add to that other such meets throughout the state of California and you have a whopping calendar that most would be hard-pressed to maintain accurately. From the beach classic car shows such as the annual Surf City Woody Car Show in Santa Cruz to the  to the big LA Auto show held each Winter in Los Angeles, or the Pismo Beach Classic in June, car lovers seem to never get their fill of beautiful bodies, shiny engines that purr or hum, and leather interiors of colors ranging from pale blue to cherry red.
