CORSA West's Funcours, REPORTS!!
Posted by: spydergear ()
Date: September 29, 2018 02:22PM

Time for our 45th annual show, the Funcours. This year it is back at the Nethercutt Museum in Sylmar and features a tour of the main showroom with cars such as the Duesenberg Twenty-Grand and others of similar caliber. Upstairs we will be shown their collection of mechanical music-machines.

Also, the Restoration-Shop tour is back. This is a tour of one of the best restoration shops in the country, where several Pebble Beach winners have been restored. It will be amazing to see what the Nethercutt family is working on currently.

Of course, the free museum, across the street, will be open also for self-guided tours.

While this is occurring, your car will be judged by our club's judges. After the tours, we will have our potluck lunch that has always had plentiful food. Trophies will be awarded the same day.

Please see attached flier:

I should also mention that there is no pre-registration needed. Just show up and register at the Funcours.

Here is a picture from the main "showroom". BTW, the tours are free, but require reservations (which we have). The collection is housed in a building that is modeled after what a dealership for one of these car brands would look like back when they were new.

Upstairs from the main showroom, the music room is also part of the tour. This is a working collection of mechanically-driven instruments, and really some are small orchestras, including this Wurlitzer theater-sized pipe organ that is synchronized with their concert-grand piano.

Last time I was on the shop tour, there were a couple of cars going through a complete restoration. One of them was this 356A Coupe. It was interesting to see how meticulous and well organized they are.

To give you an idea of the scale of this restoration shop, they have two spray booths!

The Nethercutt is located in Sylmar, at the north end of the San Fernando Valley. Easy to get to from the 5 or the 210 freeways. From either freeway, get off on Roxford and follow the map to Bradley and Bledsoe.
