Welcome to the San Diego/Palm Springs Region of the Classic Car Club of America Website, and thanks for stopping by to check us out. The CCCA is the national car club dedicated to the preservation of the world's most prestigious automobiles. The CCCA has 29 regions throughout the US, with the heaviest concentration of active members on the two coasts and upper Midwest. Looking at a map of Club regions, most encompass several states; San Diego/Palm Springs is the smallest region in geographic area, covering just San Diego, Imperial and southern Riverside Counties. With our ideal weather making it easy to enjoy our cars all year long and our region's compact size, SD/PS is probably the most active in the Club.
For the past dozen years we have hosted car-focused meets almost every month. With the beautiful Coachella and Imperial desert valleys within a two-hour drive of any location within our region, and the spectacular coastal range of mountains separating the coast from the desert, our region enjoys drives to the most comfortable parts of our domain year-round. Our events and enthusiasm from our 100-plus members have earned us awards of recognition in a variety of categories at the National Club Annual Meetings since the Region's inception in 1992.
Our events are scheduled to visit each of the sections of our region annually, so that members with cars from the 1920s, 1930s and early 1940s will find driving relaxing. It is a little known fact that one can reach any part of San Diego, Riverside and Imperial Counties on slow-car friendly roads. We invite CCCA members from all over California and Arizona, as well as "Snow Birds" here seasonally, to visit us on one of our many tours.
I hope I have tweaked your interest in our Region. For more information, please e-mail our Membership Chair, Barbara Daigle at Barbara.Daigle@uav.com or telephone me at (619)222-0072.
