Our club project to distribute Christmas Baskets helped over 60 families and 200 children. Thanks to many different club members and to ‘Costless Market’ on Carpenter. in Modesto for working to supply our huge grocery order.

Our biggest annual event — the American Graffiti Festival & Car Show. was held Aug. 20-22nd 2021. It was great success. This event raises a lot of money that goes to support our efforts to help the community throughout the year.

Thanks to everyone who participated — those in the parade, the car owners who showed their cars, the many enthusiasts who came to see them, all our Cars and Coffee friends and the visitors who just enjoyed a good time. A special thanks to all the volunteers from so many places and groups.


We hold in-person meetings at 7 a.m. Thursdays at Skewers restaurant at 821 L St., in downtown Modesto. Breakfast is $15 per person. We usually wrap up at 8 a.m.

We continue to have live Zoom meetings in conjunction with the in-person meetings. If you would like to join our in-person or virtual meetings as a guest, please fill out the contact from.
