Salinas Valley Region of the Horseless Carriage Club of America.

The organization visited San Vicente & Frank Ledesma Elementaries. The students were able to look and touch the vintage cars. Imagine the look on the students faces to be able to see what people used to drive. Thank you to Principals, Dr. Bailey & Ms. Nichols for hosting the exhibition for our students.
