One week to go until the 25th annual West Coast Crosley Club Meet in Buellton, California!
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the West Coast Regional Group. The first meet was held in Sept 1985 in Monterey, California. The locations have varied since then, ranging from Southern California to Nevada to the Bay Area. Buellton was the site of the first meet I ever attended- back in 1997. I didn't have a Crosley yet and I went with cash in hand, hoping to come back with a car. No dice.
I did come back with more information about Crosleys than I'd been able to compile on my own in six months. The folks I met were the best car people I've ever run into and I started friendships that continue today. I'd never belonged to a car club before, but I am a card-carrying member of the Crosley Club and dang proud of it.

The Meet kicks off friday afternoon with an informal meet and greet at the official hotel- at the Pea Soup Anderson in Buellton. Things get going Saturday morning about 9am over at the Buellton City Park. There's a small swap meet, Crosley car show and then a 'funkana' test of your Crosley driving skills. Club members attend a dinner Sat night and then there is a brunch Sunday morning. Then you go home and wait for next year.
