Classics Car Show a success in many ways
More than 175 spectacular pre-1976 cars were driven from all
around the Mother Lode to participate in Saturday’s Foothill Classics
Car Show in Valley Springs.
This year’s show and swap meet at
Veterans Memorial Park was the 10th annual hosted by the
Valley Springs-based car club and organizers said it was a “resounding
Judges had a real struggle to pick the finest cars in the Best of
Show, Best Upholstery, Best Engine and Best Paint categories as well as
the judge's individual preferences for the Club Choice category. The
judges independently inspected all the aspects of each car and
documented their picks. Surprisingly, when they got together to
summarize their choices for the final list there was a significant
overlap in their individual lists. It was unanimous though which car was
the choice for the Best of Show. It was Bill West's 1938 La Salle driven
Another big winner was the Calaveras High School automotive
technology class members who had a booth in the show for the first time.
The Foothill Classics Car Club is a significant supporter of the
automotive technology department and of the students participating in
the classes. They have struggled over the years to get a donation of a
newer vehicle that has the computer-control systems all modern cars
have. Having one of those vehicles on which to practice the skills that
are being taught is an important part of the learning process.
The club's main goal was to help the class solicit a donation
during the show. They succeeded. One show attendee offered a newer van
and two others said they would be interested in a donation. More than
one vehicle is a bonus because it allows more access to the different
kinds of vehicles that they will encounter in the future. The students
were also able to get cash donations for their travel expenses to other
schools to participate in auto technology competitions.
The club is deeply appreciative of all the local business that
sponsored the show with donations of cash, prizes and gift certificates
for the raffles. Forty-one businesses participated as sponsors of the
show. A list of the sponsors can be found on the club's website:
