Tri-Fives are Alive at CPP

Like a scene right out of the movie “American Graffiti”, more than 50 Tri-Five Chevys gathered in the wee hours of the morning in a parking lot in Fullerton before hitting the road for a cruise through Fullerton and Anaheim. The event marked the first annual Tri-Five Cruise and CPP ShopTour held last Saturday and it was a huge success!

The rain gods were nice to us, holding off any storms for the day, and even getting sneak peaks of the sun in the afternoon. Members of the tri-five.com forum spread the word about the event as well as CPP customers. Coming from as far away as San Francisco, San Diego and the Inland Empire, shoebox owners were treated to a day full of classic rock-n-roll tunes, behind-the-scenes tours of CPP, Carl’s Jr. burgers and lots of raffle prizes. Thanks to our wonderful sponsors, everyone received goodie buckets and raffle prizes totaling over $10,000.

The special guest of the day, thanks to Source Interlink, was “Project X”, the famous yellow ’57 Belair featured in the pages of Popular Hot Rodding since 1965. CPP owner Jim Ries led the cruise having the special honor of being in the driver’s seat of “X”. “What an honor and thrill it was to drive such an iconic vehicle!”

CPP Keeps On Truckin'

It was awesome! Early one morning, over 100 classic trucks — everything from C-10s to F-100s — convened in Fullerton for a 10-mile cruise that would wind through Fullerton, Brea and Anaheim. They were headed to CPP for the 1st Annual CPP Classic Truck Shop Tour, which was held March 12, 2011.

Though the weather was over-casted, the mood was bright and sunny, as everyone spent the day chatting and checking out each other’s vehicles. Everything was there; from works-in-progress to incredible show trucks.

Our cameras were there to capture the fun, which included the CPP’s shop tour, lunch courtesy of CPP and multiple raffle prize give-a-ways.

The Novas Have Taken Over CPP!

When we challenged the local Nova community to break last year's number of cars that came to our Nova cruise and shop tour, we didn't think so many of you would take us seriously! Word spread quickly about our 3rd annual event through StevesNovaSite.com and SoCalNovas and our own customer base. Over 110 Novas met up in the early morning hours this past Saturday, March 5th, before hitting the highway and cruising to our shop. What a sight to behold...four lanes of Novas across the 57 freeway! Participants from all over Orange County, Ventura, San Diego and the Inland Empire joined in on the 10-mile cruise through Brea, Fullerton and Anaheim. Once the caravan arrived at CPP, parking was swift and very organized thanks to some awesome volunteers and employees. Goody bags were handed out and raffle tickets entered into the drawing. Our sponsors kicked in some great stuff with the grand prize being a Total Cost Involved Rear Torque Arm Kit valued at $1799! Tours of our engineering department, machine shop, build department, shipping and showroom went on throughout the morning, giving everyone an inside view of CPP. The In & Out Burger truck arrived just in time to feed the hungry crowd. We will have the event video up real soon, so be sure to check back on our website! After the final count was tallied...140 Novas lined the streets in front of CPP. Can we top that next year?!?
