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 at 7 PM on the 1st Tuesday of every month at the La Verne Community Center, 3660 D Street, La Verne, CA. (Temporarily closed due to COVID19). 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 Show. 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 Volunteers for Veterans Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, and Children's Hospital of Orange County. The show is held on the infield of the Santa Anita Race Track in Arcadia, Ca. NOTE: The 2020 show was cancelled due to COVID-19. We will hold the show again in 2021, so watch our website for the announcement later this year.
The Club's Brackett Field Air Fair & Car Show to be held on October 24, 2020 has also been cancelled.
The Club's Car Corral on the 3rd Saturday of every month was recently cancelled due to COVID19, despite our practice of social distancing and mask usage. We normally meet from 7:30 to 10:30 am at O'Reilly Auto Parts, 501 N. Azusa Ave. in Covina. Watch the website for notice of the event resuming and then plan to 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. 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.
