Individual pre-1975 car clubs and owners will be displaying their classic cars in specific classes including foreign car, custom car and American classic.
Also on hand will be former National Football League players, including Honor Jackson and a host of celebrity judges including: Letitia Turner Hanke-Ryzhkov, President, North Bay Black Chamber of Commerce; Samantha Acosta of Sigma Omega Nu; Aleta and Vesta Copestakes, of the Sonoma County Gazette; Gina Belforte, Rohnert Park City Council; The Community Voice's Dave Williams; and kids from Fence at the Top, which will receive the proceeds from this event.
