The 15th Edition
Festival of Great Cars & Fine Food
Sunday, May 25, 2014
For car enthusiasts who love gourmet food
This year's event commemorates the 35th anniversary of the ’79 Cannonball Run, and features a slide show narrated by several participants of the ’79 race, a light breakfast, a caravan-style drive, an over-the-top luncheon, automotive trivia contest, live auction & a showcase of collector cars.
The Festival of Great Cars & Fine Food is not a competition or a race. It is an interactive social event for car mavens who enjoy the company of like-minded enthusiasts. It is also a celebration of fine food.
Sports cars, exotics, classics, replicas, high performance, special interest, collectibles and other "fun" vehicles are all welcome.
"Having done countless automobile rallies, I learned long ago that it is not about the cars or the weather, but rather it is about the people behind the cars and your interaction with them that you really remember. To that end, I have nothing but fantastic memories of yesterday's events, not to mention the fact that I did not even think about eating until lunch today. Again, thanks for all of the hard work that everyone obviously put into the event, and please keep me on the list for future events."-Glenn R (NYC)
April 2, 1979, Portofino Inn, Redondo Beach, CA. Harvey Adelberg welcomes fellow Cannonball participants at the finish line. The Cannonball Run was a cross-country race that was held five times between 1971 and 1979. Harvey participated in the '79 event, finishing 9th, out of 46, with a time of 36 hours, 19 minutes.
Note: This is a rain or shine event. All activities will take place, as planned, regardless of the weather. The starting point of this year's event is the "library" (lounge) at the CT Car Storage facility in Shelton. Showcase vehicles will have complimentary access to secure, enclosed space up to one week before and one week after the event.
