This Saturday and Sunday, the Roamin Angels Car Club will host it's 19th annual Cruisin' the Pines Car Show at the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

More than 500 street rods, custom and classic cars, vintage camper trailers and classic boats will gather at the fairgrounds to show off their engines, paint jobs, custom body work and compete for over 50 trophies.

There will be auto-related vendors, a Car Corral of classic cars for sale, an Artisan's Faire, a car art exhibit, live music, and of course, lots of food and drink, including beer and wine.

There will be a Hot Wheels gravity drag race for the kids, and the Grass Valley Police will be offering an Impaired Driving Challenge.

On Sunday there will be a young gearheads competition which is intended to give high school students and young adults the opportunity to showcase their own cars and the work they put into them.

The engine raffle is on this year, as well as a 50/50 raffle and the big raffle with hundreds of prizes donated by our local merchants.
