We had a HUGE turnout. Thank you to all who came down to enjoy the day with us! Thanks to all the wonderful vendors and the car collecting bunch who brought their vintage pickup trucks & station wagons. We had a great time throwing the Pickups & Station Wagons parking lot party and Vintage Flea Market. A big thank you to The Underground Gourmet Food Truck who served mouth watering gourmet burgers, savory tacos and delectable sandwiches all day. And a special thank you to our exhibit and event sponsor, Santa Paula Chevrolet.

Exhibits from the collections of : Todd Huber, Skate Lab, Simi Valley CA; David Hansen, The Shop, Ventura CA; Daniel Schonewald, Camarillo, CA. As gas prices do go up, maybe we'll ride scooters again. They can go a 100 miles with a gallon of gas. The Murphy Auto Museum is displaying several scooters. Fans of old V-twin Iron will be interested to see several motorcycles from The Shop's collection. If you have been watching the TV show American Pickers, these are the bikes they would dream of finding. These are an Excelsior, Thor, Pope, and a red Indian. We even borrowed an engine cut-away that shows the inner workings of an engine.
Motorcycles on display include:
Vespa SS90, Swiss Army motorcycle, Condor 580-I Painted by "Von Dutch", 1918 Pope motorcycle, Excelsior, Thor Motorcycle, 1926 Indian Scout, Rudge speedway racer, Bultaco dirt bike
