President’s Message

The CAL-RODS Car Club of the San Gabriel Valley has been around since 1954. We are celebrating our 66th 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 meeting, held on the 1st Tuesday of every month at the La Verne Community Center, 3660 D Street, La Verne, CA. Meetings start at 7 p.m. (Temporarily closed due to Coronavirus).  Click here for our Membership Application.

CAL-RODS currently has over 220 members and is very active in the community. Our annual showcase event, which was in its 14th year, is the Santa Anita “Run with a Winner” Car ShowThe show is the Club’s major fundraiser and allows the Club to donate thousands of dollars each year to select charitable organizations, like the Volunteers for Veterans Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, and Children’s Hospital of Orange CountyThe show is held on the infield of the Santa Anita Race Track in Arcadia, CA.  NOTE:  The 2020 show had to be cancelled because the racetrack has been closed for the duration of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will hold the show again in 2021, so watch our website for the announcement later this year. 

The CAL-RODS Brackett Field Air Fair & Car Show, which was scheduled for October 24, 2020, has also been cancelled.

The CAL-RODS Car Corral on the 3rd Saturday of every month is still in operation. We practice social distancing and are wearing our masks. We meet from 7:30-10:30 at O’Reilly Auto Parts, 501 N. Azusa Avenue in Covina. Please join us for casual conversation, coffee, and pastries. 

CAL-RODS members also volunteer their time to help organize the NHRA Twilight Cruise held on the 1st Wednesday of each month at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum in Pomona, Ca. This event has been postponed until further notice. 

The members also 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.

Please see our Events/Calendar Tab for more information about CAL-RODS activities.
