Owners from all marques and all generations come together to celebrate our automotive enthusiast community in a family-friendly environment. We gather every Saturday morning but there are 4 larger gatherings such as this one each year. On Saturday, August 10, invite your car club. Invite your friends. Bring the family! 

Special Announcement! (posted on July 29): 

Motorweek, television's original automotive magazine, will be filming a special on our community during August 10's special gathering!  While I rarely make the call to shine up your favorite set of wheels, this may be the best Saturday to exercise some extra shine time. Your car, truck or SUV may be seen on international television!  Spread the word!
