Arcane Auto Society Run -- Penngrove, CA

Fulvia cam > Arcane Auto Society Run -- Penngrove, CA
Peter Engle of the Arcane Auto Society (www.arcaneauto.org) was kind enough to invite us to join them on a run from Penngrove to Sonoma.

The Arcane Auto Society is an organization devoted to the care and use of vehicles which inspire the question "Say, what kind of car is that, anyway?".

As is traditional with old car events, the rally point served coffee...

image

A well patinated Citroen Traction Avant.


image



image



image

Citroen 2CV


image



image



image

The Isetta is one of the few cars that can make the 2CV appear normal sized.


image

Three Citroens in one shot: A DS, an Ami, and a 2CV.


image

France is not the only country represented in the Arcane Auto Society...


image



image



image



image



image



image

The sporting contingent: our 67 Lancia Fulvia coupe and a lovely 63 Porsche 356.


image

With 87 bhp, the Lancia is unused to being one of the most powerful vehicles on an event. But I think that was the case here.

Yet another Flying A


image

Austin Cambridge

image



image



image



image

Off to Sonoma...


image



image



image



image

The route was a nice one, through oaks, fields and vineyards.


image



image



image



image



image

Some body roll evident with the Austin in the corners...

One of the fun things, from our position in the rear of the group, was to observe the reactions of passing drivers I'm still a little surprised some didn't drive off the road.


image

image

Arrival: the central square in Sonoma.


image



image



image



image



image



image



image



image

Lots of interest in the Arcane in Sonoma.


image



image



image



image

We may start from coffee shops, but we usually end up in pubs...


image



image



image

Sonoma is the site of a festival during the Wine Country Classic, which is held just down the road at Sears Point.


image

A number of old cars, including some of the racers, drive up from Sears Point and are displayed in the town square.

image

It must be a hoot to drive a Lotus Formula Junior on city streets.


image

...or a Lola.


image



image



image



image



image



image

A favorite with everyone I talked to: a Falcon with race history from new.


image



image



image

The cars circumnavigated the town square before being staged in the park.


image



image



image



image

A Jowett Jupiter. I would bet it's eligible for the Arcane Auto Society.


image

And very cool, I think.


image

Drinks and food on hand for the old car fans...


image



image



image

A Muntz Jet. Another shoo-in for Arcane Auto Society membership, I should think.


image



image

Mad Man Muntz


image

Period dress for the Morgan trike pilot.

A good day! Thanks to Peter for inviting us, and thanks to all the Arcane People for bringing out such interesting cars!
