Club members Don, Julie, Doug and Shawn rolled out early in the morning to attend the Saleen Annual Car Show and Open House in Corona, CA. Upon arriving at Saleen’s shop, Steve Saleen, the man, the legend, greeted the club members and personally parked them in some prime parking for the car show in a shaded area on each side of the bay door entrance, which was a great and unexpected treat! We also received a discount on the registration fees because we were there representing our club, West Coast Challengers, so that was great too!

During the car show and open house, we toured the Saleen facilities, peered in on some Saleen works in progress and then walked outside to view some of the great rides that others had brought to the car show and chatted it up with many of their owners. All the while, Steve Saleen sat inside signing autographs and posters for the attendees.

When lunch time came, Saleen spared no expense and had everything catered for us car enthusiasts, so we all sat down and enjoyed a terrific lunch.

The late afternoon came quickly, and it became time for the awards ceremony. Club member Julie, with her Pineapple Express Yellow Saleen Challenger, won the 1st Place trophy for the best Saleen car. A short time later, Julie won another trophy for the Most Sexiest Car. Not long after that, Don won the 1st Place trophy for Best Modern Day Muscle Car. After the awards ceremony we all met us with Steve Saleen again and he was gracious enough to pose for some photographs with us as well as autographing our trophies.

We all had a blast and are glad we didn’t miss the opportunity to attend this car show and represent the club as well as we did. :)
