Disclaimer: --------------------------------------------- This a pay your own way event. This means even me the organizer pays my own way to attend. As noted in other events I have organized, this is where the insanity of what I do comes in. Don't ask I don't get it either. I recently made a website to help broadcast day drives and these road trips. ---------------------------------------------
This is a road trip event for anyone and everyone. This is not a race or rally so if you are looking for a Gumball event this is not the event for you. The event does have fun back roads driving and some great stops. For references on past events look up Euro Cars Road Trip Yellowstone and California 500 Miglia.
Deadline to register is April 5th for decals to be mailed. Final registration is April 14th, decal pickup at event start.
Event details and registration:
Redwoods Road Trip – April 26 - 28
The Redwoods Road Trip is a fun three-day event that takes us through the land of giants. The event starts in Novato and heads north up the Pacific Coast Highway, making stops along the way for pictures and to socialize. The key stop for the first day is the Point Arena Lighthouse Museum and lunch in Mendocino. Day two is all about seeing the giant redwoods along the Avenue of the Giants, Lady Bird Johnson Grove, and Big Tree Wayside. Day three the group drives home with one more stop to see the Redwoods and ending in Redding for participants to make their way home.
Unlike rallies and road course events, we encourage people to stay in a group and stop at the planned destinations, as this is a road trip not a rally. However, the stops and activities are suggestions, not mandates. Our format is for those individuals, couples or families, who want to have an adventure as well as make new friends with fellow enthusiasts. We mix the day up between driving sections, photo stops and sightseeing opportunities for everyone. This is not a race, so if you are looking for a competitive event this is not for you.
I worked out group rates for all the activities and two nights of hotels. The hotels also include a full hot breakfast for hotel 1 and continental for hotel 2. The totals below are for the two nights of hotels, event insurance, decals with your number choice and shipping.
- 2 nights with King Bed $282.92 - 2 nights dual queen beds - $284.84

Hi everyone, Is there any place that will rent tools and space for you to work on your own cars in Socal near SGV? I'm looking for a place like that to make working on my car easier. I sometimes need specialty tools or run into a problem which always makes the work longer than I expected. It would be even better if they have a lift and other equipment. Something like a self-serve garage or DIY garage. Any info would be very helpful. THX!

SEPTEMBER 16th, 2007 at Houston Farm & Ranch Club. Proceeds from the AUTUMNBAHN auto show go to benefit the Texas Children's Hospital, so this is worthy cause!!
This is the event European car owners in TEXAS and surrounding areas have been waiting for year after year! AUTUMNBAHN offers its participants the BEST weekend experience possible. From the Pre-Event to "The Main Event", and "After Party Event" this is what sets AUTUMNBAHN apart from the rest to enable it to be the BEST!
AUTUMNBAHN auto show offers more than a typical Show-N-Shine, but a car show that is judged by Industry Leaders in ways that many other shows have yet to achieve. AUTUMNBAHN judges focus on detail, harmony of modifications, customization, theme, fit and a good display never hurts!. That is the difference between a "cool car" and a "Show Car".
AUTUMNBAHN 2007 offers separate Ferrari, Lambo, Porsche, BMW, Mercedes, Mini-Cooper, Volkswagen, Audi, Volvo & an open Euro Exotic classes!
All Classes will be awarded 1st thru 3rd place trophies. AUTUMNBAHN has brought in professional industry judges from some of the nations TOP car events. This will eliminate some of the "industries bias" among the European Community.
