Historically, we started the club with 12 member families and today have around 30 families. The club is exclusive to pre-1974 American cars. In our first five years of existence, we conducted annual car shows to benefit the U.S.C. Pediatric Clinic. Specifically, we supported the "food pantry" for terminally ill children in this special U.S.C. ward. In 1987 we re-focused our attention on the growing needs within Ventura County.
Thousands of dollars have gone to benefit such notable charities as: Care and Share, The United Way, Simi Valley Outreach, the Moorpark Boys and Girls Club and the YMCA. In 1987 we committed to, and purchased, a modular building for a YMCA Day Care Center with 100% of the funds provided by our club. For the past several years, the Relics have focused on The Moorpark Food Pantry, Sara's House, the American Cancer Society and other cancer research programs. Also near and dear to our hearts are FOR THE TROOPS (a non-profit organization that sends care packages to our soldiers fighting in the middle east) and HOMEFRONT AMERICA (their Homefront Santa program that matches sponsors with children of local military based families during the holidays).
We are recognized by our fellow rodders as being one of the most generous car clubs (considering its size) in the Southern California area. In past years we have been awarded both 1st and 2nd place winners of the prestigious "Golden Rule Award" from EAGLE products.
This year will be our 34th ANNUAL ROAM'N RELICS CAR SHOW and the 19th year at the same location in Moorpark, California. Our annual car show is attended by thousands of spectators. We will be displaying 500 entry vehicles from all over Southern California and is one of the largest one-day car shows in the state. This years' annual event will be announced soon, once again in Moorpark. The show is hosted and run by club members and all time is volunteered. The revenues from this event will again be divided among charities throughout the Ventura County area.
