While Woodside Credit is available anywhere in the continental US, Newport Beach, California is where our Headquarters is located and where the heart of our team is. With its iconic coastlines, bustling coastal cities, and sunshine, California is the perfect backdrop for some great classic car events and entertainment. As summertime approaches, enthusiasts are buffing, shining, and preparing to get their prized vehicles out on the road and showfield. Let’s dive into a few upcoming classic car events happening this April in California that have attracted a large following of enthusiasts:

California Mille

Happening April 21-25, 2024

An homage to the legendary Italian road race, the Mille Miglia, California Mille captures the spirit and excitement of classic car rallying. Each spring, The California Mille, a Hagerty event, offers participants the opportunity to drive their vintage vehicles through some of California’s most breathtaking landscapes. Every year, the route changes, but Hagerty’s commitment to building a route that’s enjoyable for all cars never changes. Nor does the love for pre-1958 vehicles, which is why Hagerty asks all entrants to drive a car from the era of the original Mille Miglia.

Have a pre-1958 vehicle that fits the bill? Inquiry for entry here.
