Once again, classic cars will grace the city of Paso Robles this Labor Day weekend, with the Paso Robles Classic Car Weekend event scheduled for two days, August 29th and 30th (Friday and Saturday). Net proceeds will go to local charities.
The Golden State Classics Car Club puts on the event with help from the city of Paso Robles. The club was founded in 1986 by nine individuals interested in preserving and enjoying all types of antique classic, and custom cars, and trucks. There are now 120 members in this family-oriented car club organized for the purpose of promoting interest in the preservation, and/or modification of all classic automobiles and trucks. The Chamber of Commerce had helped organize the show in the past, but Golden State Classics Car Club and the city will co-host the event this year.
Friday night, starting at the Paso Robles Event Center from 21st Street., the cars of the show will cruise up to and along Spring Street (24th to 6th St.) from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:oo p.m., over 300 cars will be laid out across the Downtown City Park featuring 1979 and older vehicles. There will be a raffle and silent auction in the park during the show with awards at around 2:00 p.m. Saturday.
The club has encouraged its participants to tour all over town through Sunday, so expects classics cars at any turn.
