Car Guys of Los Gatos Special Announcement
We have arranged for the Car Guys of Los Gatos to be invited and to have a unified presence at two upcoming Saturday events. These will be in addition to our regular second Tuesday of every month Car Show and Luncheon at Aldo’s.
The first event will be on Saturday May 16 at the Canepa Motorsports Museum Cars and Coffee Car Show and Open House located at 4900 Scotts Valley Drive, Scotts Valley. Bruce Canepa’s Museum of vintage, historic street and race cars is a destination spot for automobile enthusiasts around the world and is not to be missed.
We will have an area reserved to feature some of the older cars amongst our respective stables of Classic’s and Collectables. This well attended event runs from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 and the cars participating may arrive and stay at their leisure during that time period.
Please RSVP, ASAP, your participation request and car information and we will respond back with confirmation. Space is limited in the CGLG compound area to a max. of 20 cars and we must provide confirmation one week in advance on the cars we expect to attend.
Be advised we are entertaining the idea that some of us may wish to meet at Aldo’s that morning and drive in groups together over the hill to Scotts Valley.
Then on Saturday June 13th we are invited to display our cars and have lunch at Silicon Valley’s Most Popular Automotive Themed Event and Business Center, Club Auto Sport, which is located at the corner of Junction and Charcot in San Jose. The Club can handle upwards of 150 cars and we will have reserved spaces for 20-25 vehicles with other spaces available close by for additional vehicles.
The “Cars and Coffee” car show runs from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00. after which the members will be served lunch in the TMFC patio area owned by Club Auto Sport Principal, and Car Guys of Los Gatos member, John Davis. Tours of John’s multi-faceted collections will be a value-added benefit of the luncheon which for $25/person will feature homemade selections from John’s outdoor pizza oven, plus salad and wines supplied by sponsor, Villa Italia Imports.
Participation at the car show does not require an RSVP but we do need to guarantee 30 attendees for the luncheon. Therefore we would request that any member planning on coming to the show, whether they display their car or not, to please RSVP their intentions to stay for lunch which should prove to be an enjoyably social, relaxing and tasty mid day repast
The Project 39 1939 Ford Pickup Rat Rod Hot Rod is one Fast, Mean Machine and the Aaron Brown led team will be going after the land speed record in its class later this year at Bonneville.
The team, already holders of the NASCAR Stock CAR Class Land Speed Record at 244 MPH, expect this hot rod to hit 230 MPH.
Marketing partnerships are available especially for any Moonshine or Spirit brand which would like to have a case of their product strapped to the bed of this hot rod as it makes a run on the salt flats thereby becoming the “World’s Fastest Moonshine”.
Contact Mike Cesario at 408-220-3167 or email him at email@example.com for details.

Project 39 1939 Ford Pick up Rat Rod Hot Rod Update
The Project 39 team is looking for a marketing partner/sponsor/distiller who wants their brand to be declared the world’s fastest.
Any amount available will be most appreciated and reciprocated with some solid PR support.
Already holders of the NASCAR Stock Car Class speed record at 244 mph, the team will now be going after the land speed record in the Rat Rod class and will be participating in both speed and non-speed Rockabilly/Rat Hod/ Hot Rod events around the country this year.
Really tough break for Alex and Tommy Baldwin Racing.
