The San Diego/Palm Springs Region of the Classic Car Club of America is holding a “Grand Classic” car show on the lawn in front of The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe on Saturday, March 12, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Rancho Santa Fe residents are invited to come over to walk among the cars displayed and there is no admission charge.
The Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) is a National Club with members all over the world, who seek to further the restoration and preservation of distinctive motor cars produced between 1915 and 1948.
There will be several residents with automobiles in the show from the local area as well as cars being shown from other areas, said Vicki Zeiger, Fairbanks Ranch resident who is also on the board of the CCCA. What you will see are 35 to 40 of the finest examples of automotive craftsmanship of this era. There will be finely restored Packards, Cadillacs, Rolls-Royces and Pierce-Arrows, just to name a few of the marques on display. And, several cars displayed are former Pebble Beach winners.( As many people know, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is considered one of the premier car shows in the world.)
You won’t see examples that are not original to the era or that have been modified at this event, said Zeiger.
For examples of the types of cars that will be in the Rancho Santa Fe show, go to the Club’s website at www.classiccarclub.org or go on Facebook at San Diego/Palm Springs Region.
