17th Summer Get-Together News and Notes

The 17th Summer Get-Together is shaping up to be quite an event June 5 & 6 at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds! In addition to the outdoor show & shine, the swap meet & car corral, vendor exhibits and arts & crafts, several other marquee attractions await show goers! Here’s a look at some of the excitement!

Concours d’Elegance
Inside the spacious Young California Building Goodguys will hold the Concours d’Elegance exhibit featuring regal 30’s era Packards, Bentley’s, Cadillac La Salles and other concourse style beauties. A collection of vehicles from the nearby Blackhawk Automotive Museum will also be exhibited.

The NoCal Packard Club, Early V8 Ford Club and the Classic Car Club of America will participate in the event. Northern California has long been a hotbed for classic cars and concours style events, led by the grand daddy of them all – the Pebble Beach Concours which celebrates the 75th anniversary of Jaguar this August on the Monterey Peninsula.

The exclusive exhibit is being managed by Fred Zimmerman. For more information or to participate, contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Street Challenge Autocross
The autocross will be moved to the paved lot and share space with the swap meet. This marks the first time Goodguys will run an autocross on the famous stretch of asphalt! Back in the 1970s, the SCCA used the entire patch of paved lot holding some of the west coast’s most exciting autocross events!

Competition will be held in 4 categories – Vendor class, Street Machine (’55 & newer), Street Rod (’54 & older) and the truck class (no year cut off for this event). The autocross is free to all event participants. Tech will be held starting at 8:30am both days with timed runs 9am to noon, 1-4pm Saturday and 9am to 1pm Sunday.

Tri-Valley Quarter Midgets
The club of junior midget racers will hold racing exhibitions both days. A field of 15 to 20 cars will enter the competition which will feature a selection of different age groups and classes. The track will be located in the paved lot behind the amphitheater. Session times are 9am to noon and 1pm to 4pm both days.

Tracy Clutchburners Exhibit
The Tracy Clutchburners, who later this summer will be celebrating their 20th annual “Picnic in the Park” will be the featured Club at the 17th Summer Get-Together. Twenty cars belonging to club members will be displayed throughout the weekend inside the Hall of Commerce building.

These guys know how to have fun. Their Picnic is one of the “can’t miss” summer events on the hot rodding calendar. Stop by and introduce yourself and check out their sweet rides!

Of course an entire weekend of traditional Goodguys activities await you plus a chance to win a 1965 Mustang from Live 105 as well as the brand new GT Mustang! For complete event details visit www.summergettogether.com
