One of the best car shows to ever attend ! Great place for Father & Son/ Daughter time too. Loads of fantastic cars cruising up/ down Pleasanton's Main Street also.

This years event turned out to be the WORST ever! Stayed at the Marriot in Pleasanton, no place to park a trailer as they threatened to tow it away. The only place to park a trailer at the fairgrounds was in the dust and dirt and with the paint job on my cars, there was NO WAY I was pulling my cars out on the dirt. Ended up parking my trailer at the Tri Valley Motel where my friends were staying and had to pay $18 a night to park it there. 10 minutes after parking the trailer someone tried breaking in with a crowbar! I've come to this event for many years and this is the last for me and all of my buddies. It's just not worth the headache and nobody did anything special to make us even think about wanting to come back. There are 10 of us that come from Reno and we won't be wasting out time or money again. Pleasanton could care less about welcoming anyone, they just want the $$.
