      Saturday October 8th, CJ's Car Show and BBQ

      CJ's car show, held at Perforce Software's beautiful grass parking lot is in its 3rd year, and should be bigger and better than ever! This event coincides with Alameda's Park Street Car Show, we'll have two walking tours through Park St where we can admire over 400 cars lining the streets of Alameda. This event is a social and automotive historical gathering you won't want to miss!

      This year is cj's 50th birthday celebration. Come out enjoy the festivities, 10:30am and 1:30pm walk down Park Street to view the pre 1975 muscle cars, BBQ and picnic eats from 11:30, cake around 4:00. This is a leisurely event with no awards. Just show up, share your car, enjoy the food and good company.

      The show is across the street from my shop at:

      2318 Clement Ave
      Alameda, CA 94501

      Aston Martin DB9, and color is OK.

      No gifts. You can bring some food or drinks though. It will be a potluck BBQ. We'll provide the burgers, chicken or whatever for the BBQ, but some fixin's will be needed, potato salad, green salad etc.

      Definitely hoping to attend. Any chance this is the same day as the Alameda flea market? If so, odds go way up. Wife really wants some new furniture and apparently that is the place to be.

      I have a work function in Tilden from 11-3 that day, but will likely leave a bit early to catch the second half of the show. I figured I wouldn't register since I won't be participating in the pot luck aspect, but let me know if you'd prefer I register anyway.
      Looking forward to it.

      Up at the steam trains?

      No need to register, just come on out. It helps to plan for food if you were coming earlier, but I am sure there will be plenty if you're famished. Helen is a school cafeteria planner and she won't want any of us going hungry...

      It works out that I'll be up in Lafayette that weekend, so I'm planning to stop by. Being in Lompoc, I'm caught in-between North and South with zero local activity. Looking forward to meeting some of you!

      I can most likely stop and pick up something to bring, what will be most needed? Also, I'm bringing my good camera.

      Bummed I wasn't able to make it. However, on my way to Tilden I can claim to have passed this lady and her beautiful ride on the bridge, right after the deadly s-curve:

      right after the deadly s-curve:
      It's only deadly if you shouldn't be driving a car.

      Thanks to everyone who came out. It was a birthday celebration I wouldn't trade for anything.

      This is the best picture. Biased like you Joe, of course.
