The FIAT Club America SOCAL Chapter will be attending the Best of France and Ital Car show in Woodley Park in Van Nuys CA on November 3rd. From 9am - 4PM. This is one of the best car show and events to attend here in Southern California. The FIAT Club will have a special FIAT Car Club Corral. Please RSVP with Sean Russell

Here is more info:

Come join us at Woodley Park, Van Nuys for a day with the best of French and Italian motoring machinery. This a non-judged show, from the rough restoration project to the serious concours offering. All are welcome, and our pricing structure is geared toward the collector with more than one vehicle.

If you don't have a car, plenty will be for sale amongst the rows of gleaming machinery. The intent of this gathering is to provide a meeting place for those marques that get little attention at the fancier concours. If you're looking to unload the garage or for that special part, check out our swap meet.

The registration fee is the same for both cars and swap meet spaces. A parking area is provided for trailers and tow vehicles. Food will be available or bring a picnic (no alcohol please).

Wow...I was excited about this until I read the "release statement" to release anyone from any potential harm. Why would I release the event organizers from all liability (negligence)??? I would rather know the event organizers and affiliates carry proper insurance. Sounds like a good event though. Good luck.

Isn't that standard lawyer talk? Race tickets have that on the back, too, but if you get hit by a flying NASCAR engine, somebody's paying up, guaranteed.

That is an interesting perspective and A good point. As a FIAT Club Member part of your membership dues are for Insurance. As a FIAT Club America Member you are covered at all FIAT Club Sanctioned events. This is another reason to join a club that has had been around since 1982....

This event has been a SOCAL tradition for over 14 years. If you have watched any of Jay Leno videos from Jay Lenos Garage website Jay Leno typically video tapes segments for his website at this event.

Hope you join us?

Not necessarily....it all depends on the release and who you release to. :Peace:

Welcome to the forum! Fiat America Club will be there too, it is our annual 4-day long club tour. We'll leave Bay Area on Friday, will take some fun and scenic Sierra roads with an overnight stop at one of those little towns on the way. More fun roads on Saturday. Sunday morning we'll be at the show. After the show, in the afternoon we usually tour Mullholand Dr all the way to Malibu followed by a sunset picnic by the ocean. Will probably have some kind of special event Monday morning before heading back to Bay Area.

Hope to see you guys there! :)

For those in Bay Area, join Fiat America (fiatamerica.com)!

It was great to see you too!

Perhaps, with can have a joint tour through LA hills in the afternoon after BOFI show! It would be great to see two clubs and bunch of Fiats on the same tour. PM me your email if you are interested, I can introduce you to the organizers from our side. :)

It only cost $20 to display your car. This is a great event with lots of amazing cars to see. Typically Jay Leno shows up and cracks several jokes. Please make sure you sign up here: http://www.franceanditaly.com/register.php

And if people want to come, but not display their car, is that an option? Is there a basic entrance fee, or is it free to browse around?

You only pay to display the car, other than that admission is free. Parking might be a bit of a problem, but it's worth it. Great event, highly recommend it!

Hey everyone. Sorry I was off the grid last couple of days. I have been wrenching on a FIAT Spider trying to get the car ready for the show. Unfortunately I do not think I will be able to have the FIAT ready. Looks like I will have to bring the Alfa Romeo. One of the benefits of have too many Italian HOT RODS....

Thanks to everyone who has responded. It looks like we will have a great turn out. I will have a special Area designated for the FIAT Club America. Please do not show up late. If you show up late they will have to put you somewhere else.

If you registered you will not receive any confirmation. Sorry the organizers are "Oldschool" If you registered you will be on the list. If you registered please bring a print from your online registration. If you paid with PayPal bring your PayPal Receipt.

If you have any questions you can always email me directly at seanrussell01@gmail.com

Starts at 9AM so you should get there before 9AM to get a good spot with other FIAT Club Members. Again here is the website there is Link to the Map on the site
