Will you be the one who becomes the Big Kahuna?
As our theme suggests, this year’s Casual Concours Charity Car Show celebrates everything Hawaiian and Ford Thunderbird. Join us on Saturday, October 14th between 9 am—2 pm as we return to a new and old club favorite venue, the iconic Indian Canyons Golf Resort in Palm Springs, California. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased the day of the show at the entrance gate.

Last year’s show brought out 190 cars and well over 1100 attendees. With so many members thrilled about our return to Indian Canyons Golf Resort, we expect even more cars and larger crowds. 

It's a full weekend of fun. While the car show itself is Saturday, we have the usual Friday night Kick-Off Party, the Saturday night Awards Banquet, and the Sunday morning brunch. You may pre-register for all of these activities here.

There is much more information on the show and the classes in the August Solenoid, so please consult it for all the details.
