Sandy McCullar said that a dozen car clubs from Northern California and Southern Oregon were represented. People came from as far away as Santa Rosa, Napa, and Cool, California.

The show began at 10 a.m. The first seventy-five entrees received goodie bags, a t-shirt and dash plaques. First and second place were awarded in 17 show classes. There were also awards for Club Participation and Best of Show. The award for Best of Show went to Dreu, Ed, and Mary Ann Murin from Susanville for their 1934 Ford Fordor Sedan.
