Nevada City car show attracts vintage auto fans
Diehard foreign car fans braved the heat in downtown Nevada City to check out the beautiful cars at the 3rd Annual Nevada City Foreign Car & Motorcycle Show recently.
The weather was hot, however the turnout was great. Nearly 100 registrants lined up their gorgeous automobiles on Broad Street.
The band, Blended Metal Saxophones, played while people strolled past the vintage foreign cars and motorcycles.
There were two winners chosen by the public.
The People’s Choice winners for best car were Scott and Theresa McLaughlin of Nevada City for their 1967 356C Porsche. The People’s Choice winner for best motorcycle was Grass Valley’s Dave Molloy and his 1969 BSA Victor Special.
The Sierra Sports Car Group, the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce and United Way of Nevada County collaborated on the event, with proceeds benefitting the Chamber and United Way of Nevada County.
There was a raffle with some great prizes: a wine stroll, a pub crawl and fun things for the kids to do. There are still commemorative T-shirts and beer mugs available with a donation to United Way.
This annual competition has become a popular event for Nevada City with people from all over California participating.
