I do not know "the why", other than it was related to this past weekend's event (which I missed).

The short of it is, there's no reason to go to "C&C" (I use quotes because it really isn't C&C now, IMO) unless you want to see only pre-'78 cars. There are plenty of weekly SoCal alternatives if you want to see only old cars and hot rods/musclecars, and I'd personally favor them over "C&C" now because the other shows are true to their original intent.

Everything that made C&C special is now gone, no more Vectors mixing it up with Model Ts, Lambos and Cobras, Mustangs and Z8s, Unimogs and 997 GT3s. Truly a sad day for SoCal auto enthusiasts.

Thanks Ford! *insert extended middle digit emoticon here*

That's too bad.....I had great time attending last weekend. Nevertheless, there is an alternative, and it is just about an hour drive south to San Diego...
