In conjunction with the Central Coast Clean Cities Coalition (C)’s 3rd annual Meet the Members celebration on August 27th at Hearst Castle State Park, I would like to inform you about the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Display and Car show. The theme for this event is “Tropical Getaway” and we will be having alternative fuel vehicles and vintage utomobiles from the early California surf era on display. We have a large prominent display area for our car show and we’re looking for your assistance to showcase your classic or alternative fuel vehicle at this event. Please help us make positive changes for the future at the historic Hearst Castle?.

The car show runs from 12-4 p.m. at the Hearst Castle Visitor’s Center so vehicles need to be at the facility by 7-8:30a.m. From 9-11 a.m. C5 will hosting a breakfast briefing for all displayers which will provide a great opportunity for networking. Last year, over 3,500 individuals visited Hearst Castle each day during the month of August and with the special Meet the Members celebration, attendance at the car show is expected to be outstanding! There will also be a speaker’s panel to give C5 members an opportunity to discuss their product.

We are planning to get a large attendance for this event, with car clubs and enthusiasts bringing some unique vehicles, so please reserve your spot today. Participation in the vehicle show is free! All displayers are encouraged to attend the Meet the Members reception that takes place on the hilltop at Neptune’s Pool starting at 6:00 pm. Ticket price is $75 per person for C5 members and $100 for non-members. To purchase your ticket go to C5’s website and print out the RSVP card and make payment to Central Coast Clean Cities Coalition, 3940-7 Broad Street, #120, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401. All individuals, companies, and organizations are encouraged to join.

I just found the Jetta TDI I will be buying tomorrow (need to sign that pesky pink slip) and I will soon be a member of the diesel community. I'll drive the car around for a little while, getting used to what it's like to have a diesel automobile, and soon soon soon I'll fill its belly with biodiesel! That is my plan.

So glad to have found this community. I'm in Los Angeles, more precise in La Crescenta (near Pasadena, Glendale) so I would love to find a place close by to fuel my new vegetarian beast.

hey there. i recognize you from the l.a. community.

congrats on your new jetta. how do you like it? have you started using biodiesel in it yet? do you know about the l.a. biodiesel co-op? they now have their trailer out by dodger stadium.

Yup! Love the car, although driving a diesel is a slightly different experience for me. I've only had it for a couple weeks, so I haven't put biodiesel into it yet.
I did joing the L.A. Biodiesel CO-op, but I haven't paid my dues yet, so I can't buy fuel at the filling station you mentioned. I need to drive down to that trailer though and check it out!

**i guess that would be "near" dodger stadium. ha!

glad you are loving the jetta. yeah, diesels are a different breed. i remember the first time driving the wife's gasser after driving my old mercedes for a month. i couldn't believe how much pep her car "appeared" to have. (i sure didn't notice it before driving the diesel. ha!)

another option to the co-op is to have the fuel delivered to you. might you be interested in that? (i used to work for LA BioFuel/Green Depot.)

how good are you about tinkering with cars? it is my understanding TDIs are very finicky when it comes to fuel filters and biodiesel. it's a good idea to know how to do it -- which isn't very hard. it's also a good idea a keep a spare handy. welcome to the world of biodiesel! ;)
