We’ll again be at the Sacramento Autorama, February 14-16, 2020, at the Sacramento Cal Expo Fairgrounds. The Sacramento Autorama 2019 was spectacular with, for example, an outstanding street machine engine award to Lisa Lavoie’s 1955 Chevy 210 Sedan and David Echert’s 1949 Hudson Club Coupe winning the Custom D’Elegance award. Check this link for last year’s other winners. Again, several of my favorite fuel injection cars were throughout. Past shows featured live entertainment, celebrity signings, and great food. I had a great tasting chicken salad last year. Let us know if you are showing. We will look you up.
LAST YEAR’S HIGHLIGHTS
The Sacramento Autorama, February 15-17, 2019 was again a hit. Our favorites were an outstanding lime green Plymouth Daytona Street Hemi appraised at well over a million, a low rider Chevy convertible with stunning modifications probable too fine to ever drive again, numerous Roots blown street rods displayed in most every one of the different halls, as well as a host of mechanical fuel injection hot rods, all our favorites. A restored Nascar 57 Chevy sedan with Rochester fuel injection, a factory cold air pack, and Nascar 6 lug wheels was displayed in the East hall together with hundreds of other custom autos and trucks just in that building. Several thousand custom vehicles throughout. Thanks to Rodshows.com for this special event.

Kingdon Drags, Lodi, Ca Sept 8-10, 2017
We enjoyed this event very much. In addition to hundreds of racecars that included many prostreet cars, blown alcohol, turbocharged, and nitro powered racecars, the event featured a P51 fighter plane flyover and a 250 MPH jet dragster. The staff at the Kingdon event also supplied plenty of shaded seating covered by tents, all real close to the track for a great view. Thanks to Jeff & Brian Shirk & the entire staff of volunteers and airport workers who made this event a success.
