To All 2016 Whittier Area Classic Car Show Participants,
On behalf of our car show committee, I would like to thank you for your participation in our fifth annual event, and invite you to the 6th Annual Whittier Area Classic Car Show.
This past February, we hosted 400 show cars, a few display cars, and a hand full of nostalgia dragsters.The show also included sponsor and vendor booths, t-shirts, live music, games and activities for the kids,a very popular coffee cart, food trucks, sno-cones, a raffle table and opportunity drawing, and trophies in over 20 categories. Weʼve heard a lot of positive feedback, and many of you have expressed an interest in our next event. Please consider this letter and enclosed registration form your invitation to attend our next car show scheduled for February 25, 2017.
At the February 2016 show, we raised over $14,000.00, putting the five-year total over $65,000.00.Again, that $14,000.00 went back into the community. With your help, we were able to offer financial support to The Interfaith Food Center and Serve Weekend. Serve Weekend is an annual Whittier event where hundreds of volunteers from dozens of churches come together to complete projects all over Whittier for dozens of service and support agencies. We appreciate your support again this year, without you, none of this would be possible.
We would also like to express our thanks to Jim Maher of Good Vibrations Motorsports and DragParts.com for his continued support. Jim will be back in 2017, along with Classic Performance Products and Hagerty Insurance. A big “Thank You” goes out to Matt and Jeff Langan of Precision MetalCraft who will once again produce our trophies and to Whittier Area Community Church for being our host. The crew at Stith Printing have once again produced our artwork and will print our t-shirts. Thank you to all of these organizations for their continued support; this will always be a major team effort.
The food trucks will be back in 2017 and the coffee cart will be available too. Three important things to note; 1.) As in previous years, all show cars will have a designated registration number and numbered parking space, so thereʼs no need to arrive early. 2.) If you would like to park next to your buddies, please send your registrations in as a group. Itʼs easier to keep your group together, if you register together, and 3.) Last year we sold out six weeks before the show. If you would like to come back in 2017, please register early to guarantee your spot. The earlier the better!
Our plan is to have the 6th Annual Whittier Area Classic Car Show look very much like our previous shows, with just a little tweaking to make it a little bigger and a little better. The date is set for Saturday, February 25, 2017, and the time will be the same, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. For more information, please visit our website at www.whittierareaclassiccarshow.com or our Facebook page. Again, thank you for coming out last February and giving us your support. We look forward to seeing you in 2017. Tod Linklater Chairman of the 2017 Whittier Area Classic Car Show
