Why Citroën was the Pioneering Misfit of the Car World
Words and photography Vijay Sankar (pink_helmet) … Arriving at the sprawling farm draped over the hilly landscape of Castro Valley, I was greeted by a sanctuary carefully preserving the cream of French automotive avant-garde. It was fitting that the entire locality felt detached from the modern world, seemingly living in its own dreamy bubble of…

2021 Car Season Kickoff at the Shipyard
WE’RE BACK PEOPLE!
And it feels so good…
To kick off 2021, we’ll be back at the USS Hornet. This time, find us there on the Third Sunday of February (21st) from 9-11am.
Though it may be the new year, we still aren’t in the clear. Wear a mask, and give people space. We’ve kicked folks out for this before and we’ll do it again.
As usual, our good friends at Peet’s Coffee will be on site serving up some fresh coffee for all of you. To spice things up a bit, we’re going to be hosting our good friends at Breakfast Club Rally in their own private section. Keep your eyes out for the BCR section to the right of the Hornet. If you’d like to secure your own parking spot here, head over to the BCR website and follow the instructions. We’ll be joined again by our friends at Hemmings, who will be on site to serve YOU. Stop by our tent and grab some swag and maybe even a mag. First come, first served, so get there on time. And finally, we’ll be on site at our tent selling posters & stickers. Come pay a visit and hear a bit more about what we’ve got planned for 2021. We’ll give you the inside scoop about a project that we’re rolling out for 2021 (which we’ll be launching that day, in fact).
See you there folks 🚗. 🚙. 🏎. 💨
