NorCal Car Shows, Swap Meets & Races November 28 – December 4





We had another rare weekend without attending a Car Show. I need to be taking advantage of this time to be filling up our 2023 calendar, although sometimes it’s nice to relax a little. I think all year long that I wished was way ahead listing car shows but maybe I just like working under pressure? I do appreciate everyone that has been sending me information on their 2023 events.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Now, Christmas will be here before we know it. If you are looking for something cool for your favorite Car Guy or Gal, please visit our Hot Rod Bookstore at 7975 Auburn Boulevard in Citrus Heights.

Every week we have some really cool cars come to visit us at our Classic Reg Service/Hot Rod Bookstore. Here are a few of my favorites from the last few weeks.

Like I say every week, I am sure thankful 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. Please CLICK HERE to pay for you subscription, you could be the next winner!

If you would like to pay by check, please make it payable to NorCal Car Culture and mail it to: 7975 Auburn Blvd. Citrus Heights, CA 95610 or you are always welcome to visit us at our store and pay in person.

Last week’s giveaway winner was Cliff Madariaga from Sacramento, CA. He won a couple of cool Metal Signs from Steve Reedy at Reedyville Goods at 3302 Swetzer Road in Loomis, CA. All his signs are cut and made right there at their store by a very talented group of people.

***We are busy working hard on our new American Car Culture Association, hopefully we will launch it 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.
