Come on NorCal, by now I'm sure everyone knows how to be responsible and social distance and I'm sure everyone has their masks . So I was browsing all social networks and I found the post below. Pretty sure one of our members may be involved with the gathering as well and I would love to see a few Spyders and Speedsters reunite. The post below came from Valtautoclub on Instagram:



And boy does it feel good…

To kick off 2021, we’ll be back at the USS Hornet. This time, find us there on the Third Sunday of February (21st) from 9-11am.

Though it may be a new year, we still aren’t in the clear. Wear a mask, and give people their space. We have kicked folks out for this and we’ll do it again.

To spice things up a bit, we’re going to be hosting our good friends @breakfastclubrally in their own section. Keep your eyes out for the BCR section right next to the Hornet. If you’d like to secure a spot in there, head over to the @breakfastclubrally instagram and follow their instructions. Let’s show em a good time!

We’ll be joined again by our friends @hemmings, who will be on site to serve YOU. Stop by our shared tent and grab some swag, and maybe even a mag. First come, first served, so get there on time.

As usual, our good friends @peetscoffee will be on site serving up some coffee for all of you.

And finally, we’ll be on site at our tent selling posters & stickers. Come pay a visit and hear a bit more about what we’ve got planned for 2021. We’ll even give you the inside scoop about a project we’re rolling out for 2021 (which we’ll be launching that day, in fact).

See you there folks 🚗🚙🏎💨

Our very own @ericthered puts on this show and the monthly one in Albany on Solano Ave.  I know he puts in A LOT of work organizing these shows.  

The USS Hornet aircraft carrier and a number of WWII Liberty Ships make an amazing backdrop for the cars.  I've attached a few pics.  If interested, let me know, perhaps we can all park together?



I also attached a photo from the Solano Ave meet in Albany.

Hey all!!

yep that’s me that putting on the Cars & Coffee in Alameda at the USS Hornet every month. This month it’s on Feb 21st from 9:00 - 11:00am. We normally get about 600 plus diverse cars. Everyone from a few Spyders and 356’s plus so many other makes. It’s truely NorCals largest and most diverse show. Free coffee by Peet’s, abs generally free automotive grab bags for cars attending.

We are strict about the masks and will ask you to go if you choose not to. So far we have had no issues, and I’ve personally never seen anyone not wearing them.

This month our main sponsor and collaboration is LUCID MOTORCARS and they are brining out a new prototype that’s never been shown before. Will be amazing! Also

come on down all are welcome, if you want a good spot be on time or early as this is always fully packed show.

Rick99GSX,

Thank you for posting this.

I have just nudged my wife about this.

Fingers crossed, (hopefully she authorizes this, heheheheh)

Looking forward to seeing you and the others again, (we have met a few times over the years including last year in Monterey when my wife and I drove our Spyder down the 1 on the way to meet with the Speedster folks).

Talk to you soon, (hopefully in Alameda).

Antonio

I did not even think of the weather, especially since I plan to bring the Spyder.

Fingers crossed on that one too.

Antonio

Antonio:

The East Bay/Alameda weather is "forecasted" to be decent (read: no rain) Sunday. From the lo-40's in the AM to the lo-mid 60's in the afternoon. Either way - Spyder OR Speedster - they're BOTH topless with piss-poor heaters, so I certainly don't recommend T-shirt & shorts.

I'll be looking for you!

Paul

I would be there no later then 8:30. But I would shot for 8:00. Show is expected to be very large this month. Should be around 600 plus cars.

we do not hold spot or allows large clubs together so the show can stay diverse. We want people to see things they never do!

this month we are honoring technology with an all electric area called “shocked” we will have a Lucid Prototype, Volvo Polestars, race ready i3’s, and a few fully modified Tesla’s. We will also have cars coming from BCR (Breakfast Club Rally) so many cars from outside the general area usually never seen local.

i will Also most likely be taking my Spyder or my 1930 Ford Roadster. Come by the tent and ask for me would love to see your cars!

@kevin - Bay Area  kevin you must have been there very very early. That place was pack. At least thousand cars. What’s nice was most was wearing mask.

@ericthered that was a nice turn out. Just getting there early AM they had 10 cars caravan. Lots of HP on the road also. Where is the next one?  In Palo Alto CC you don’t get this mic of cars.
Awesome day to be out. Thanks.

Glad you all made it out. Show was an amazing turnout this month, super diverse with something for everyone. We counted cars as long as we could and estimate about 2000.
no issues, police were all cool, people wore masks and in general was under control. We learned a bit about traffic flow and parking.
We have some amazing stuff coming for March so if you want to keep up with what’s going on follow me on Instagram @autolgnd or go to our website at www.Valt auto club.com
