|PLEASANTON, CA EUROPEAN, BRITISH & UNIQUE FOREIGN CAR GATHERING
May 2, 2008, Saturday, 12:00 – 4:00 PM
(Come and go & stay as long asyou choose!)
It is open to all owners of European sports, classics, high
performance and any unique imported cars of particular interest.
Emphasis will be on cars produced pre-1975. Also, unique cars
fromother continents welcome as well! This is a good excuse to take
a drive to a Bay Area destination, blow the cobwebs out of the
carburettors and meet with other Bay Area enthusiasts.
NEW LOCATION…….. Simply Greek Restaurant, 4220-C Rosewood
Drive,Pleasanton, CA - Phone: 925-463-8801 -
Website:(www.simply-greek.com) Conveniently located in
the Rose Pavilion near Santa Rita Road & Rose Pavilion Rd. (Just
minutes from the Hwy. 580/Santa Rita Road freeway exit) IMPORTANT!!!
THIS IS THE PLEASANTON LOCATION
OF SIMPLY GREEK, NOT OAKLAND
As before, this is an informal, relatively last minute gathering &
an excuse to leave the "Honey Do" list behind as you "run to the
hardware store for some parts." Hell, it was successful last weekend
even with a last minute date change and on Easter weekend, so this
event should be huge!!
NOTE: Since the last gathering of close to 50 cars, we've had numerous
requests to "Do it again." So, before the car show season gets into
full swing, here we go again! Here are a few of the things that we've
learned and changed for this upcoming gathering:
We are sending this release directly to various car clubs and those
individuals that expressed an interest (no names will be shared with
any other clubs, organizations, span sites, etc.) in the event.
We've got considerably more space at the Rose Pavilion as a result of
a number of fairly large businesses that have vacated their
properties. The Simply Greek restaurant parking lot (and adjacent
area) will accommodate upwards of 75 cars. Simply Greek welcomes our
group and offers unique, quality food (consistent with our cars!!).
Within walking distance there are also a few other restaurants
including TGIF, Asian, etc. Also, for those of you that might be
considering a new / used car, within walking distance is a MINI
dealership, Lexus and other new cars stores.
As with the last event, the success of the event was largely due to
enthusiasts (like you) spreading the word to friends, car clubs and
even those that would like to see a casual collection of unique cars.
Finally, thanks to all of those that attended the first event, we hope
to see you on the 2nd of May. By the way, so far we've got commitments
from a few unique cars that we unable to make it to the first event.
They include: a local Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 355 (perhaps 2-3),
a Pantera, Porsche 550, old Mini Cooper's, Lotus Super 7 and a few
OUR GOAL REMAINS THE SAME AS WITH THE FIRST EVENT. SPECIFICALLY:
THIS EVENT IS FOR THOSE THAT ARE:
- Tired of "American Only" car gatherings with virtually no Foreign,
Euro or interesting (to you) cars on display
- Interested in a Saturday drive destination to meet with other
Foreign car enthusiasts on a beautiful, sunny California day and tell
- Owner's of a wide range of foreign sports, specialty, high
performance and unique vehicles are welcome to bring vehicles in any
condition including; "drivers", show level examples, exotics, and even
interesting "RIP" (Restorations in Progress)
- Interested in meeting other foreign car owners and possibly
organizing driving events and other activities for certain types /
groups of cars
- Interested in the flexibility of being on their own for lunch at one
of Pleasanton's new, unique Greek restaurants (Affordable burgers,
salads, drinks, etc are also available at "Simply Greek." However,
their food (IMHO) is absolutely great!!
- Have a car for sale and would like some free advertising to a group
of potentially interested buyer's
THIS EVENT IS NOT FOR THOSE THAT ARE LOOKING FOR:
- A formal car show with judging, awards, etc
- Events with costly admission, cost to park
- American cars, hot rods, muscle cars or other American "Iron"
- A full day of organized activities
Sound interesting?? If so, please join us for a few hours (or as long
as you care to stay) of very informal socializing and viewing of some
interesting cars. No need to RSVP, sign up…just show up and let's see
how many cars we can attract.
