The CAL-RODS Car Club of the San Gabriel Valley has been around since 1954. We are celebrating our 65th Year! If you have a classic car, truck, or hot rod, or just want to share a love for old cars while getting together with old and new friends, CAL-RODS invites you to join us at our monthly meetings, which are held on the 1st Tuesday of every month at the La Verne Community Center, 3660 D Street, La Verne, CA. Meetings begin at 7 p.m.

CAL-RODS currently has over 200 members and is very active in the community. Our annual showcase event, which is in its 13th year, is the Santa Anita “Run with a Winner” Car Show. The show is held on the infield of the Santa Anita Race Track, in Arcadia, Ca. This is not your typical car show. You get to park on the infield grass of the historic race track with the backdrop of the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains. There is something for everyone while relaxing & hanging out with friends and watching live horse racing! There’s always plenty to eat and drink, a play and activity area for kids to enjoy, a live band, and you might as well hit a trifecta while you’re there. The show is the Club’s major fundraiser and allows the Club to donate thousands of dollars each year to select charitable organizations, like the Ronald McDonald House, Children’s Hospital, and Veterans Charities.
In addition to the Santa Anita show the Club hosts a Car Corral on the 3rd Saturday of every month. We meet from 7:30-10:30 at O’Reilly Auto Parts, 501 N Azusa Ave, Covina. Please join us for casual conversation, coffee, and pastries.
CAL-RODS members also volunteer their time to help organize the weekly Twilight Cruise, held on the 1st Wednesday of each month at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum, in Pomona, Ca. They keep busy with an Annual Picnic, a Christmas Dinner/Dance, private car collection tours, shop and museum tours, and various other car shows and cruises. CAL-RODS is proud to say we’re “still cruising after all these years,” and we definitely live up to it.
