Classic Autos Roll Into Napa Valley for Father's Day

YOUNTVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 26, 2001--The Napa Valley will proudly welcome car connoisseurs from around the Bay Area and beyond as Vintage 1870 in Yountville, Napa Valley hosts the 11th Annual Father's Day Invitational Auto Show on Sunday, June 17, 2001 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Auto entries are by invitation.

Once again, Vintage 1870 celebrates the "art of the driving machine." From the national champions to the local favorites, to the one-of-a-kind collector curiosities.
