SAOCA West Coast Invasion


Open to all Rootes Group Cars


May,18,19,20,21, 2017. Cambria, Ca.


Sponsored by The Sunbeam Alpine Owners Club of America


Please join us for a weekend of Celebration of the Rootes Group Cars. The enjoyment of driving and owning these cars is shared only by a special few. If your desire is to park and sit for 6 hours at a car show, then this is not the venue for you. Driving, visiting, sightseeing and eating are the plans. While there certainly will be time to “show” your car, the pleasure of driving, and visiting is the main venue. Our schedule and times will be a bit loose.


Schedule: We have 12 rooms reserved, we suggest reserving as soon as possible. Cancellation must be made before 30 days of the event.
