Thank You to all the volunteers for helping out at The Great Race 2019.   Whether it was parking cars that were on display on Mill and Main Streets or the Great Race cars as they came in for their 45-minute lunch stop, directing traffic, giving out information and selling engine and jeep raffle tickets – it was greatly appreciated.

Definition of a Classic Car
By David Schultz from the November 2013 issue of Hemmings Classic Car

At a recent Car Show meeting, the subject was once again brought up as to the definition of a classic car. Richard G. submits this excerpt definition for consideration from the Classic Car Club of America (CCCA): In the words of the CCCA: A CCCA Classic is a “fine” or “distinctive” automobile, either American or foreign built, produced between 1915 and 1948.

Christy’s Barn Party – June 2, 2019

This year the weather cooperated, it was only in the 80’s.  The Band this year was Solstice, a local Nevada City band.  They played classic rock out of the late 70’s and 80’s.  Everyone loved the music and a lot of dancing was going on. I’ve already booked them for next years party. They were great. We had a lot of help with putting on the party.  The helpers that laid out the dance floor were: Bob and Colleen N. and Bruce and Lynne K. It was a warm day and we…

Announcements & Observations: From Lanny N. regarding the Friday morning breakfast location change: “In spite of the fact that I haven’t been a regular for a while, I will miss knowing it was there.

Shirley Telum was our waitress and we sat in the back booth. Soon we were joined by Ray Y., Rose S.,…

Bear River High School Shop Tour

After Breakfast Field Trip Friday, May 10, 2019 A bunch of us jumped at the opportunity to view the wood and metal shops at Bear River High School. We were greeted in the office by this (what I thought was a high school student ) young woman,  Morgan.  She has a masters degree from San Luis Obispo.  I was under the misconception that the Arts were cut in high school, but thankfully, that is not the case. Speaking for all of us, we were overwhelmed with how brilliant Morgan was. She ran both shops and a…

Six Most Cost-Effective Performance Upgrades - Photo by BHeller

Kurt Ernst on May 21st, 2019 • Hemmings Daily If the first car race happened as soon as two primitive automobiles lined up next to one another, then the first performance modifications came shortly after that very contest.
