Hot rods and classics

The Chico Concours field is typically very diverse. From funky 1950s hot rods to elegant marques of the world’s greatest auto manufacturers, and everything in between. Some of our board members have served since the very first event, and do so for the love of automobiles — To share that experience with the public and raise funds for local charities.
