A new auto museum is opening in Vancouver on June 28th in conjunction with the Great Race stop over on its way from Riverside Ca. to the American Car Museum in Tacoma.
The Great Race is an annual driving rally that has occurred in a different part of the country every year since 1992. It is a timed event, limited to 120 cars of various vintage, style, etc. The grand prize this year is $50,000 with the total prize purse of $150,000.
The new museum in Vancouver is the home to nearly 40 antique and classic autos from the 20's through the early 70's. Activities at the museum will include food carts, as well as live music from 5:30 - 8PM. Car Club cruise-ins will start at 2PM. Race cars will start arriving and be on display from 5- 8 PM. The museum will have dedicated parking available for car clubs.
The CLC driving tour will meet at 11:30 at the Jantzen Beach Red Lion parking lot, leave at noon for a no host lunch on the Vancouver waterfront. Depart lunch at 1:30PM and drive through Fort Vancouver's Officer Row and proceed through downtown Vancouver and Old Hwy 99 to the museum site in Hazel Dell arriving at approximately 2 PM.
We will need to inform the museum 2 weeks prior to the event of the number of cars club so parking can be secured.
