Crystal Cove Car Show Searches for New Home!

For those who have not been, this is THE place to see an incredible static display of some of the sweetest exotic cars in So Cal. My friend at the Irvine Company just sent me this press release. If she gets any more additional information, I will pass it along...

You can see a recent (small) sample of what this show offers here:

WEEKLY CAR GATHERING OUTGROWS
NEIGHBORHOOD SHOPPING CENTER

Search Is On For New Event Venue

NEWPORT BEACH, CA (October 2, 2006) -- The search is on for potential new sites for an early morning Saturday car show that has outgrown a community shopping center parking lot at Crystal Cove Promenade.

The show began in 2003 with a few dozen enthusiasts showing off their antique and exotic automobiles early Saturday mornings. It has evolved into a weekly gathering that regularly attracts more than 200 specialty vehicles, 600 observers and commercial enterprises promoting their businesses.

“For more than three years, we’ve tried our best to accommodate this spontaneous and informal car show,” said Susan Jennrich, general manager of Crystal Cove Promenade. “It has grown in size and complexity into an enthusiastic weekly event that is no longer appropriate for a shopping center parking lot near a residential area.”

The show has no single leader or sponsor, but in discussions last week several participants were told the shopping center’s parking lot no longer will be available for the car show after October 14. Flyers to that effect will be distributed to participants at the next two events.

Jennrich said the car shows have reached a size and scope that they should be subject to a municipal special events permit that would require insurance and trash removal, among other things, and would regulate issues such as hours of operation and noise. Shopping center events held throughout the year are subject to permits issued by the city.

Several car enthusiasts who want to keep the show growing have been in discussions to find a more appropriate venue in Newport Beach that can handle its growing popularity.

“We hope they find a location equipped to handle the significant number of participants, spectators and businesses involved,” Jennrich said.

Are you going down there this weekend, nevermore? Anyone else interested in checking out some big-buck cages on Saturday???

If the weather is nice, I think I'll head down there early and get some pictures after smoothing out Ortega Highway...

I plan to be there! What time are you going to hit Ortega? I'm in south county, so that's my back yard and I might be up for an early morning jaunt
Either way, I'll probably take my son to the show, it's his tenth birthday this weekend and he is already trying to decide between a Ferrari and a Lamborghini when he turns sixteen, ha ha. Maybe I'll get him a lottery ticket.

Well, It looks like good weather, so, if I get to sleep at a reasonable hour, I would leave here between 6:30 and 7am, I live on the inland side of Ortega...That would put me at the show by 7:30 or 8am at the latest. This is an early event, so I am going to try to run on the early side of that plan!

Bring your kid, bring your camera...Should be great as always!

I will be on the Tambo, parked in the "motorcycle area"...
