Targa California 2011
Our friends George Eshagian of Automotive Innovations and Restorations (Van Nuys) and NASA presents a classic car tour for 1975 and older makes* that winds its way through some of the best sports car roads California offers. This non competitive event is a way for car enthusiasts to enjoy their older cars in the manner that they were designed for: DRIVING !
According to NASA the start is just north of Los Angeles, the tour winds its way over and through mountain passes, canyons, and plateaus. Up through parts of the central valley, then out to the coast. We drive as far north as the Carmel / Monterey area with stops for unique interests and lunch. Challenging roads with spring time vistas await. There are no check points, time limits, or trophies. Just plain fun camaraderie with 124 other car teams.
Our headquarters for Thursday and Friday nights, is in Paso Robles. A secure area of our Headquarters hotel is set aside to park our cars. Wash facility will also be provided.
Being the third edition of the Targa California, we have taken it up a notch. Included in your entry fee, for each team, is a welcome dinner Thursday evening, a farewell brunch on Saturday, and a Team packet. Packets include dinner/brunch tickets for two, route books, car ‘plaque’ stickers, and more.
There will be special gifts awarded by sponsors for multi car teams, unique models, and spirit.
Each car is considered a team. Each car must have one NASA member to be eligible to enter. Proof of insurance, valid driver licenses, are required in advance of the event.
