With 40 vehicles in tow, the EuroSunday auto club will be bringing plenty of eclectic foreign eye candy to the Sacramento Auto Show.
The club, which focuses on European cars and motorcycles, will feature a “Barn Find Row” consisting of an old Porche, a Mercedes and a Lancia Scorpion. Elsewhere in the EuroSunday display will be a Jaguar, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Lamborghini, as well as rare South African-built Noble, one of the fastest cards in existence from 0-60 mph. Then there’s the Ariel Atom, an exoskeletal torpedo of a vehicle designed in the 90s by a rather precocious student at Coventry University in England.
But EuroSunday prides itself as a driving club, and one with an “anything goes” attitude at that, which is why you may also find a Volkswagen Camper bus among EuroSunday’s collection.
“We love to hear people say, “Oh my gosh, I remember when I had one of those,’ ” said EuroSunday Event Director Mike Ritenour. “We try to evoke emotion.”
The public is encouraged to vote for their favorite car in the EuroSunday display. The winning car owner will have a $3,000 check in his or her name donated to the Shriner’s Hospital for Children - Northern California.
