It was a fun and very eventful day for Original Parts Group and our Car Show Team on June 8, 2019, as we hosted our all Chevy car show for pre-88 models. If you are a Chevy guy or gal, OPGI was the place to be. This show kicked off the first of our two Spring-Summer Series car shows, held once again at our headquarters in Sunny Seal Beach, California. We had delicious breakfast items and coffee served by some of our team, music, awards, an opportunity drawing and a food truck provided by Roaming Hunger.
Bill Sinko and Fred Schmitthammer along with the So Cal Chevelle & Camino club assisted us with registrant parking bright and early again this year and even brought in 25 cars of their own. Check out some of their rides!
The G-Body Key Club was here with 15+ super clean G-bodies prominently displayed all along the front side of our building. Their club member Edwin Garcia won the best G-Body Award.
Check out our other Chevy show winners below.
