Benefitting the Orinda Association’s Seniors Around Town Ride Program and other local charities.

About the Show

In 2005 Orinda residents Chip Herman and John Vanek, backed by Orinda Motors, partnered to start the Orinda Classic Car Show to bring together the local classic car community and to raise money for local charities including  Seniors Around Town transportation program,  the Educational Foundation of Orinda and the Orinda Historical Society. Over the past 16 years, substantial funds have been raised for local charities.
