President's Message

  The CAL-RODS Car Club of the San Gabriel Valley has been around since 1954. We are celebrating our 67th 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.  Click here for a Membership Application.  

   CAL-RODS currently has over 200 members and is very active in the community.  Our annual showcase event, which is in its 15th year, is the “Run with a Winner” Car Show.  The show is the Club’s major fundraiser and allows us to donate thousands of dollars each year to select charitable organizations like the Volunteers for Veterans Foundation and Children's Hospital of Orange County.  The show is held in May on the infield of the Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia, Ca.  NOTE:  The 2020 & 2021 show was cancelled due to COVID-19. We will hold the show again in 2022, so watch our website for the announcement later this year. 

   Good News!  The Club's Car Corral is held on the 3rd Saturday of every month and is up and running. We meet from 7:30 to 9:30 am at O'Reilly Auto Parts, 501 N. Azusa Ave. in Covina.  Plan to join us for casual conversation, coffee, and pastries.  Be sure to wear a mask and practice social distancing. 

   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 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 Calendar for more information about CAL-RODS activities.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at 714-814-2499 or email me at jhussey51112@yahoo.com

John Hussey, President
