Classic car clubs, collectors, and enthusiasts are invited to attend the 13th Annual Custom and Classic Car show on Friday, May 4, from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m.

The Silicon Valley Career Technical Education car show has grown steadily in size with over 200 entries in 2017 that raised over $5,000. This year, we hope to have more than 300 vehicle exhibitors. Spectator admission to the car show is free, with limited parking. The event is held at the SVCTE campus located at 760 Hillsdale Avenue, San Jose, CA 95136.

Exhibitor passes are a $20 tax-deductible donation/fee per car, truck, motorcycle or bicycle in the SVCTE auto show. Pre-registration is not available. Exhibitors will pay at the gate on the night of the event. All proceeds go directly to support students competing in SkillsUSA competitions. This past February, 34 SVCTE students won regional medals and 44 qualified to advance to the SkillsUSA state competition at the Ontario Convention Center on April 19-22.

2018 SVCTE Car Show - Half Sheet Master 2-28-18.jpgAccording to SVCTE’s Auto Body instructor and event organizer, Robert McTaggart, more than 1,000 spectators attend the annual event each year. Spectators enjoy voting on their favorites in eight categories: best car, best motorcycle, best pedal push, best car under construction, best truck, best club participation, best engine, and the best paint job in the show.

Students and staff from SVCTE programs showcase a variety of display tables. Raffle prizes are provided by vendors and the California Teachers Association (CTA). Live music will be performed by Vital Sign. Food and soft drinks will be available for purchase. Sponsors are still needed to make the event even more successful, this year. For questions, contact event organizer Robert McTaggart at (408) 723-6563.

Tax-deductible donations may be made through the MetroED Foundation which is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Please specify that the donation is for the SVCTE Annual Custom & Classic Car Show. Donations can be made online at www.metroed.net/donate, or by mail to MetroED Foundation, 760 Hillsdale Avenue Bldg 400, San Jose, CA 95136.

Accountability & Better Government Reforms – Rules Committee Agenda Item G.9
San José is the 10th largest city in the United States, yet it is stuck in the 1980’s with a management structure more suited for small cities. In times of crisis, we need government to be nimble, responsive, and accountable to the community for results and to bring local government into the 21st century. As we face the greatest series of crises in our lifetime – a global pandemic and the deepest economic recession since the great recession – we must have the people’s choice, an elected Accountable Mayor, be directly responsible for the city.
