New Regalia Items

Check out our Regalia Page for new regalia items! We have just added two jigsaw puzzles to our regalia offerings. These are the same puzzles featured in our annual Puzzle Night competitions! They feature the lineups from our 2013 and 2014 TCMG / ARR Conclaves. Quantities are limited, so buy yours before they are all gone!


potteryOur next monthly meeting on July 28 will feature a special presentation by TCMG member Sandra Loe on making custom pottery. Examples will be on hand to examine, and Sandra will describe the process, tools and materials used in her creations.

The Henkel’s Picnic meeting in June was enjoyed by 39 members and guests, with five TCs driven by Buckeridge, Loe, Ratnayake, Simmons and Spiegel. Also present in a classic was Dave Reid in his XK-150, and of course our hosts showing their all original XK-120 and 1928 Lincoln.


adolfo-camarillo-houseOn August 22, take a drive to the city of Camarillo for a tour of the historic Adolfo Camarillo House, built in 1892.  This two-story Queen Anne Victorian style home is maintained as it was when new, and still includes the barns and stables built to house the famous Camarillo White Horses.  Beat the Summer heat by joining us along the coast for this cool and historic event!  Stay tuned for further details.

July event recap: Two TCs graced the parking lot at the USS Iowa, driven by Richard and Sandra Loe and Larry and Tracy Pate.
