This and That
The Fortuna Redwood AutoXpo was first put together in 1990, but there was a lot of interest in car shows prior to that date. In this picture, cars were fairly new in Fortuna when this first ever gathering of cars was held, likely around 1903 or 1904. It was also very likely that every automobile in Fortuna was part of this show. It was held on Fortuna's Main Street between 9th and 10th Streets, in front of Taco Loco, the same location where the Judged car Show is held today.
Mike Morrow asks several people attending the Redwood AutoXpo to reminisce about "My First Car".
"We're All Motorheads." Ron Thunman describes a typical Redwood AutoXpo event.
And finally, we need to thank the City of Fortuna and all the individuals who help make this exciting event happen!
