COARSEGOLD – Mountain Area residents were treated to a dazzling array of style and color at the Coarsegold Classic Car Show (CCCS), Saturday in the Historic Village.
This was the first time in the eight years of the event that the CCCS was held in the afternoon. It was the goal of organizers to beat the June heat, and the show was a smashing success, with over 70 cars available for viewing and coveting on the green at the Village.
Bruce Novak won Best of Show with his 1950 Studebaker Champion.
A special trophy was given to showrunner, Carolyn Mather, for her tireless effort of running the CCCS for the last 8 years.
The Coarsegold Classic Car Show is an annual event which debuted in 2008. It is held each summer on the green at the Coarsegold Historic Village along Highway 41 in Coarsegold. All funds raised from the CCCS go to benefit Manna House, a local outreach and assistance center for families in need.
