Should probably hold off on posting this until I get the rest of the 2017 Meet story up, but what the heck. Some video snippets of the Crosley Cruise from Pacific Grove to Carmel. Enjoy!

The West Coast Crosley Club will be hold our annual West Coast Regional Club Meet on October 14-15, 2017 in Pacific Grove, California. This year will be the club's 27th Annual Meet.
The unofficial kick-off for the Meet is the Friday Night Potluck, October 13 at the Monterey Peninsula Inn in Pacific Grove. This informal get-together usually starts around 3:30PM and winds up in the early evening. Bring a snack to share and be prepared to talk Crosley!
Saturday, October 14, the club will host a Crosley parts swap and display of Crosley cars in Jewell Park at the intersection of Central and Forrest Avenues in Downtown Pacific Grove from 9AM to 2:30PM. A club raffle will follow lunch, and then we will reconvene at 6PM for the Annual Club Banquet, where the Awards will be announced.
On Sunday, October 15, we'll meet after breakfast for the fabulous Crosley Cruise! Crosley drivers (and members in their 'regular' cars) are invited to take a 60 mile microcar-friendly cruise through the beautiful landscape of the Monterey Bay region. The cruise route will include the famed 17-Mile Drive and we'll make stops to check out attractions all along the way. The Meet ends when the Cruise returns to Pacific Grove at about 1:30PM.
The Crosley Automobile Club has been showcasing these tiny American autos since 1969. The West Coast Regional Group was formed in 1986 and is currently the largest regional Crosley Club group in the country, with members in all Western states. The annual West Coast Meet is held at a different place each year and this will be the first time that the Meet has ever been held in Pacific Grove.

After three “Orange Blossom Specials” in beautiful Fillmore, California, we’ve decided to try something a little different for our Spring Meet this year – we’re combining our mid-year meet with the Annual Southwest Unique Little Car Show. If you have never been to the SWULCS, you are in for a HUGE treat! Ever seen a Playboy? A Nobel? A Frisky? You may see all of those marques, and many, many more oddball autos at SWULCS. Imagine a car show where Crosleys are some of the LARGER and least-rare cars on hand! The last SoCal edition of the Southwest Unique Little Car Show meet drew over one hundred incredibly strange vehicles, including a half-dozen Crosleys. (A full write-up on TBT editor Tim Foster's trip to the 2014 SWULCS is here.)
This year we decided to make it "official" and hold our Spring Meet in conjunction with SWULCS. Come just for the Saturday car show in Downtown Upland, or go whole hog and sign up for the Friday night dinner and SWULCS Banquet on Saturday night, too! The Registration information for the West Coast Crosley Club Spring Meet at SWULCS is below- click here for a print-ready version of the registration form – be sure to send your registration directly to Greg Hahs. Call SWULCS head honcho Greg at (909) 292-8461 for more information.
We’ll have a West Coast Crosley Club Corral at the show - let’s have a great Crosley Club turnout and show these folks just how fun having a fine car can be!
