I’ve shared some photos on here of the past four Napa Valley 750 rally events we put on. This year we are gearing up for our 5th. Perhaps some of you are interested, or know someone that may have interest in attending. After the torrential rains of last year, we decided to push the event back into May, hoping for clear skies.
Information can be found here: www.napavalley750.com

The group is intentionally kept small; thus allowing each participant to get to know one another. Most participants bring their significant other: it’s Napa Valley, it’s beautiful roads, amazing wine, and Michelin rated chef prepared dinners.


It is a charity event. In the previous four years, we’ve raised in the neighborhood of $200,000 for the local hospital group. Helping them get through the worst of the pandemic.

Let me know if you have any questions. We keep the registration to pre-1972 sports cars. (Having made an exception last year for the 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS).

It’s a great group of people and a great group of cars.  Some photos below of the past events.

In my earlier post, I touched on the smaller rally group. We try to keep the participants at around 25 cars (45-50) each year.
Given the location, food and beverage; it’s understandable where some may believe this is a gathering of the pretentious. However that could not be further from the truth. We seek those that we refer to as the blue Jean and boots crowd. Those that have motor oil in their veins and consider gasoline a scent of cologne.

As with any vintage car rally, we do have break downs. A vast majority of times, the cars are fixed along the roadside using the brainpower of the participants.
For those needing more extensive repairs, we have a trailer that follows. The cars are loaded up and taken back to a local shop, where participants have worked through the night to get the cars back on the road by morning.
The most extensive night time repair to date has to be changing out a radiator in a Dino 246GT. There just so happened to be a radiator that would fit with a little bit of machining and welding. It was a “temp” fix, but allowed the Dino to finish the next 500 rally miles with ease.
