Car Show, Beyond And More

It’s all Landon’s & Den’s fault! 2005 was my first Roamin Angels show as a member joining after Landon told us the Roamin Angels’ story. Jean and I volunteered for gate and ticket duty. At the follow up meeting, Den announced he was retiring from the Car Corral and asked if I would be interested. No, I said…(yeah right)…and here we are 13 years later. It was at that car show meeting that I remember Show Directors Duke and Thane saying thanks to all the directors and volunteers. “You” deserve…

September Travels With The Roamin Angels

Well, fellow Angels you missed another great road trip, with only four cars we covered close to 500 miles in five days. Wednesday morning we had a little rain leaving Grass Valley heading down Highway 49 through Coloma, it was too wet to stop and enjoy Marshall Gold Discovery State Park. We did stop off at the Poor Man’s Bronze shop in Jackson. WOW! What a place – very interesting inventory of unique & charming metal statues for your garden or yard. After having lunch, we ventured on further down…

Show Snapshots

There were a lot of special moments during the show – From the Friday Night dinner to the clean up on Sunday. The Roamin Angels car show is run by volunteers, mainly the members of the club. From the initial planning to the wrap up ‘party’ to go over the ‘good, bad and everything in between, it’s a group effort. Special Thanks goes to Mike Hauser for his 7 years as the head director of the Greatest Car Show in Northern California.

Vintage Trailer Village

We had a great weekend in our cozy Vintage Trailer Village. Twenty vintage trailers showed up. It was a tight fit, but everyone helped and didn’t mind being close. Trailer hopping was in full swing on Saturday. Many of the car show attendees were fascinated with the old trailers that were in such good shape. The idea of added accessories is important when showing vintage trailers. The awning, chairs, flamingos, etc. are all part of the presentation. The best presentation was won by Micheal Aeri from Shingle Springs. The best…

Colfax Car Show
Colfax Car Show - August 17, 2019

Colfax Car Show – August 17, 2019 The Colfax Lions held their third annual downtown Car Show Saturday, August 17th. The weather was a blistering 92 degrees but a breeze helped. Fifty five cars on hand, fifty less than the last two years, but weather was partly to blame. The Lion’s furnished lunch, a DJ played music we all enjoyed and a raffle where every Roamin Angel appeared to win something. Having a small show sure appealed to me and others too. Oh yes, donut holes and coffee when we…
