What you'll do

Every first Saturday of each month: You'll truly get a taste of Southern California car culture at its finest by meeting some of the car collectors and occasionally, the movers and shakers of the automotive industry, who help shape the scene. I will pick you up at our meeting spot at Griffith Park and shuttle you to 2 of my favorite car events in my 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia TI/Veloce (for groups of 4 or more, we will take my 2008 Porsche Cayenne S) and where you can browse down aisles of obscure European and Japanese (JDM) imports, unique one off customs and rat rods, multi-million dollar exotic and hyper cars, classic American muscle, and barely street legal (and some not street legal) race cars. Expect a lot of smiles, laughter, making new friends, hearing the stories behind some of the most beautiful cars ever made, and of course, lots and lots of bench racing.
* Having been a professional race car driver and a current high speed driving instructor, my focus is on your safety and as a result, will be following all traffic laws and limits.

I've loved cars since my father left an issue of a then current 1983 car magazine on the coffee table. Over the next decades, I attended the Jim Russell Racing School, crewed on a works Mazda IMSA GTU team, was a racing driver in the Professional Racers Organization, Porsche Owners Cup, American Stockcar Challenge, NASA, SCCA, Touring and Car Racing Association. I also co-owned a professional race team with 5 cars.
Today, I work on some weekends as a high performance driving instructor for various schools and enjoy meeting friends who race professionally and for fun at these car events.

Where you'll be

These events are not exclusive nor hard to find IF you know where to look and are familiar with SoCal. However, because of their relaxed nature, the events are not well publicized, making them obscure even for automotive fans who live in Los Angeles. It also makes them much more fun as the atmosphere is one of camaraderie amongst a group of Petrol Heads or Gear Heads.
Due to the limited time, we will limit our visits to 2 events in Northeast LA
