Vintage, foreign cars roll into downtown Nevada City Saturday

The Sierra Sports Car Group, United Way of Nevada County and the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce will present the second annual Nevada City Foreign Car Show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today.

Car entry is limited to 1980 and older vehicles, including vintage motorcycles. The cars will be parked on Broad Street in Nevada City for the public to view. During the day there will also be a Nevada City Wine Stroll and a pub crawl with several local restaurants participating in downtown Nevada City. The car show is free to attend.

The Sierra Sports Car Group is an informal group of enthusiasts who enjoy restoring, driving, maintaining and showing their vintage cars.

Most of its members are located in the Nevada City /Grass Valley area and meet on a monthly basis. The group began meeting in 1990 and has grown to some 75 members, and the cars range from MGs, Austin Healeys, Porsches and Ferraris.

This will be a great opportunity to see many of the vintage cars up close and talk to the owners of these beautiful and rare cars. There will also be live music performed by Blended Metal Saxophones and fun things for the kids. During the event, two people’s choice awards will be given out. The public may vote for their favorite cars and/or motorcycles.

The proceeds will go to the United Way of Nevada County and the Chamber of Commerce to help support community efforts in our area. United Way of Nevada County’s current impact areas are education, income and health.
