It’s that time of year again… our annual Duke’s Brunch in Huntington Beach!  This year we plan to take our Club Photo Shoot in the parking lot beforehand.  Please plan to arrive by 9:00 a.m. so we can get parked and set up.  The cost for self parking in the Valet parking area will be $8.00 per car, which includes gratuity.  The group photo will be taken at 9:30 a.m.

After the shoot, we’ll enter Duke’s through the Barefoot Bar Entrance on the north side of the building where we’ll get preferred seating before the doors open to the public.  Duke’s has stipulated that only one tab per table will be allowed so please bring cash.  The cost of the brunch buffet is $28.00 per person plus tax and gratuity.

This is always a fun event so come on out and be part of the gang!  After brunch you can stroll the Pier, enjoy the beach or maybe have a sporting game of Volleyball!  8)

2015 Membership Renewal Time

Just a reminder, if you haven’t done so, be sure to renew your VOA membership now so you don’t miss out on any events or issues of Viper Quarterly. Membership prices remain the same, $115 regular, $150 for Mamba. Visit www.driveviper.com/portal/ to renew. Southern California Viper Club relies on your membership dues to sponsor many of the great events through out the year.

Need New Tires?
Need new tires for your Gen III/IV (or V) Viper? Have we got a deal for you! Pirelli is offering VOA members
factory-direct pricing on their P ZERO and P ZERO Corsa (R-compound, street legal) Viper tires. These are the same tires that come as Original Equipment (OE) on the Gen V Viper. They also fit stock Gen III/IV wheels as well! We recently compared the Pirelli tires to the Michelin Pilot Sport 2’s on a Gen IV Viper, and the Pirellis turned in faster lap times and provided more controllable handling at the limit, both wet and dry. (See next issue of Viper Quarterly for a full report.)

VOA can save you a substantial amount on a set of tires. Not $40. Not $100, but $800! Yes, that’s right, save EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS on a set of P ZERO tires and a whopping $1350 on a set of Corsas over current tire warehouse prices! The amount you save on a set of P ZERO tires will pay for five years of MAMBA membership in VOA! Aren’t you glad you joined VOA?

PRICES (Warehouse price / Factory Direct Price)

P ZERO Front P295/30ZR18 (94Y): $346/$250
PZERO Rear P355/30ZR19 (99Y)LL: $677/$375
Set of 4 P ZEROs: $2046/$1250
(A $795+ savings)

CORSA Front P295/30ZR18 (94Y): $481/$325
CORSA Rear P355/30ZR19 (99Y)LL: $970/$450

Member’s Holiday Party

Saturday, December 20, 2014

: : : : : CLICK HERE TO BUY YOUR MEMBERS HOLIDAY PARTY TICKETS : : : : :
This year we’ve been fortunate enough to book the Historic Mission Inn Hotel & Spa in Riverside   [http://www.missioninn.com

01-1From its modest beginnings as a two-story adobe guest house in 1876, to its current position as an icon of breathtaking architecture, timeless beauty and old world charm, The Mission Inn is a place where history, grandeur and inspiration is found around every corner.  This national historic landmark evokes the spirit of the holiday season by transforming the entire city block into a winter wonderland with their Festival of Lights, a spectacular collection of nearly 4 million lights and 400 animated figures… one of the biggest winter attractions in Southern California!

This is truly a one-of-a-kind destination and an event you won’t want to miss!  So, mark your calendars.

 
Normally, the Mission Inn requires a two-night minimum stay during the Festival of Lights weekends.  Although our group rate is good for both Friday and Saturday nights, we were able to work out a single-night agreement.

Using Group Code Viper121914, room rates are as follows:

Room Type             Rate
–   Deluxe            $ 169.00
–   Raincross        $ 179.00
–   Glenwood        $ 189.00
–   Mission           $ 219.00
–   Junior Suite     $ 269.00

Reservations can be made by calling 1-951-784-0300 or online at https://bookings.ihotelier.com/The-Mission-Inn-Hotel-&-Spa/bookings.jsp?hotelId=74028&languageid=1

Only the Deluxe room type can be reserved online.
Review room types at: http://www.missioninn.com/rooms%2Dsuites

Please Note:  Rooms during the Festival of Lights sell out fast, and availability becomes limited the closer we get to the event.  These are off-season rates.  Normally the cost of a Deluxe Room during this timeframe would be $309.00 per night.  Our initial room block contract is for only 15 rooms, and we can’t add more rooms until these sell.  Please don’t wait

PASADENA ART CENTER COLLEGE OF DESIGN CAR CLASSIC October 26, 2014

Gary-BelvedereGary & Melissa Belvedere are planning this great event.  Car Classic serves as a reminder that behind every beautifully designed car is an innovative and talented designer—one most likely educated at Art Center College of Design. For more than 10 years, Art Center’s Car Classic event has examined automotive culture and vehicle architecture through the lens of design. More than just another high-profile car show, this popular public event celebrates the very best in automotive design, showcasing the College’s strong ties to industry and honoring many of our noteworthy alumni.

Join us this year for “Street to Screen” as Art Center Car Classic explores the impact transportation and entertainment design has on Hollywood and the entertainment industry—on camera, on the road and behind the scenes. Transportation designers, car collectors, filmmakers and auto and lifestyle enthusiasts will converge at Art Center’s annual event to hear from and meet the people who design the vehicles that we love to see cruising Sunset Boulevard, coasting along scenic byways or roaring to life on the big screen.

It’s a daylong celebration, providing attendees an up-close-and-personal look at a carefully curated selection of innovative vehicles, rare automobiles and stunning concept cars.

We will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes and tour the Campus.  There is perhaps no better way to become acquainted with Art Center than through the high caliber work of its students. This gallery offers a glance at projects created by students in each of Art Center’s disciplines.        http://www2.artcenter.edu/gallery/

Breakfast:  We will start the morning between 8:00 and 8:15 a.m.
