A friend on the Board of the California Automobile Museum in Sacramento has asked me to help notify vintage travel trailer owners about an upcoming Car (and Vintage Trailer) Cruise being held August 6th in Sacramento sponsored by the California Automobile Museum and was hoping you could help spread the word.
The Museum is really interested in getting vintage trailer owners to join in. It isn’t necessary that the trailer be pulled by a vintage auto.
Here’s the scoop:
The California Automobile Museum is encouraging travel trailers to join in their “Cruise” this year and will have a special display space on Fulton Ave, where the Cruise ends. Participants will gather at lot 1 (shaded) at Sac State College, cruise down Fair Oaks Blvd with a Police escort, left on Fulton and then we are closing Fulton Ave from Marconi to El Camino. The car and the trailer will be charged at the single car rate. Vintage trailers can be pulled by modern or vintage cars.
The museum is requesting that entries for trailers be made by July 31st as they will need to do a special display for them and will need to know how many trailers there will be. Participants should
also say if they want to display their vintage tow car or place it elsewhere.
Registration and online payment for the event can be found at
The following is an excerpt from the CAM website:
On Saturday, August 6th, 2011, get ready for Sacramento to come alive with the sights and sounds of hundreds of unique cars from all eras and manufacturers as they celebrate an American summertime tradition of cruising with community-wide participation.
The 3rd Annual CAM Car Cruise, hosted by the California Automobile Museum (CAM), will be a fun-filled day for the whole family as we cruise through the streets of Sacramento and along Fulton Avenue where we will conclude with a huge car show on Fulton between El Camino and Marconi. Attendees are encouraged to enjoy the local fares of Fulton Avenue merchants, plus we will have a beer garden, live bands, vendors and more!
Price for car cruise is $39 early registration, $49 after July 15 with an extra $5 off for CAM Gearhead members. General admission is free for spectators.
