NorCal Car Shows, Swap Meets & Races – Happy Thanksgiving





Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am so thankful for all of you and the tremendous support I receive from friends and family. This has been a long slow journey building these Car Culture websites and newsletters and I sure appreciate all the words of encouragement I receive every week. I am especially grateful for our sponsors, their support has and does mean so much to us. Please check them out at the bottom of each newsletter and on every page of our websites.

We have some big plans for 2023 including our American Car Culture Association. I hope to get out and travel across the West to more shows and races. I am excited to meet more of you in person no matter where you live. I got a very nice camera from my friend Art Wong at Maita Motorsports and my plan is to take better pictures at the shows I attend and of the people I meet. Hopefully I can do little articles on each show or race and share them with you.

This past Saturday afternoon I went to the big BC Fab Open House Car Show at 3265 Monier Circle in Rancho Cordova. These guys always have an interesting mix of cars from Lowriders to Resto-Mods. Here are a few of my favorites from the show.

I can’t say enough about how very grateful I am to all of you that paid for your $25 yearly subscription this past week and year!Our Weekly Giveaway Drawings are “for paid subscribers only” and take place every Wednesday evening.

***We are busy working to make the American Car Culture Association a non-profit corporation, hopefully before the end of the year. Our goal is to preserve and promote Car Culture through our Websites and Newsletters as well as with awards, scholarships and historical displays. We will offer different membership levels including a subscription and an American Car Culture t-shirt or other Car Culture Gear. We are working on additional benefits of membership including discounts or coupons from your favorite vendors. Please let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions.***

Here is a preview of our 2023 American Car Culture t-shirt.
