Start your engines for the Annual Benefit & Auction for the California Automobile Museums mission to preserve, exhibit, and teach the story of the automobile and its history on our lives. “Life in the Fast Lane” is a theme chosen to give highlight and pay tribute to the dangerously fast racing profession.

Not only will you have the opportunity to meet and greet some of the most entertaining voices in the regional racing domain (listed below), but the Museum got their hands on some wonderful auction items for you to bid handsomely on.

Guests of this event will enjoy a special inside look into the world of racing and listen to stories of speed from:

Sports Car Club of America Regional Manager Gary Pitts

24 Hours of LeMons Founder Jay Lamm

Concours d’LeMons creator & Billetproof owner Alan Galbraith

For all you risk-takers out there, enjoy a very fun and exciting live auction, a silent auction with tantalizing items to bid on, cocktails and appetizers, and a full-course catered dinner.

Want to get away? Among some of the items up for bid is a one week trip to Kona, Hawaii!  Did you know the average temperature in Hawaii is 85 degrees?  Time to practice up on your hula moves!
