May 2 - May 3

(Just Before the HCCA Bakersfield Swap Meet)

Join us on the 2024 Grizzly Bear Tour from Bakersfield to Porterville (100-mile round trip).

  • We meet at the parking lot of the Famoso Drag Strip (location of the 2024 HCCA Swap Meet) on Thursday, May 2, 2024 at 8:30 am.
  • Tour directions will be handed out and the tour leaves for Porterville Community College at 9 am.
  • Expected arrival (50 miles) is around 10:30 am.
  • Cars will be parked on campus for an informal ‘car show’ and a presentation on the early development of automobiles in the US will be given in the campus theatre.
  • Cars will stay on-campus until noon and tourists can get lunch in Porterville (lunch on your own) and then meet at 1:30 pm for our drive back to the Famoso Drag Strip (a different route through the foothills).
  • There will not be a trouble truck so have your towing service up-to-date.

Please register by emailing the Tour Director.

Tour Cost: $0 Other information: For hotel information, please see the information posted for the 2024 HCCA Swap Meet.

Cars/Costumes: Since this is a HCCA tour, we will limit cars to 1915 or earlier (any car any size) and encourage period costumes (especially since we will be showing our cars at the Porterville Community College).
