2024 West Coast Reunion, Save the Dates

West Coast Reunion 2024 – Sonoma County
The 2024 West Coast Reunion is scheduled for the weekend of May 3rd through 5th and will include tours on some of Sonoma County’s best driving roads. We will travel through wineries out to the beautiful coast through the redwoods  and take some less travelled interior routes reminiscent of Northern Italy. What could be more appropriate for a group of Lancias?
The weekend will start with a Friday evening welcome reception and we will have a drive on both  Saturday and Sunday with dinner on Saturday evening.
We will be based at the Marriott Courtyard Santa Rosa which is in Railroad Square, Santa Rosa’s Old Town. We have reserved a block of rooms at a very attractive price of $199 per night including breakfast in a private room.  And we will have a dedicated parking area so all the Lancias will be together.
More details will follow as we work out the schedule but to take advantage of the discounted rate in our reserved rooms book now at:

We look forward to seeing a great gathering of Lancias next May!

2021 Drive your Lancia Day

This years event was not as frequented as the last years event. We have only received three photos and one fun comment from members that unfortunately were out of town but visiting family and got a chance to not drive but hold a Aurelia! Their granddaughter fittingly named as such!

The photos arrived from Lynn and Steve Peterson in their Appia with passengers Kjell and Lo Nelin, Hank Koning in his newly arrived Fulvia Coupe and the Neuman Fulvia at a Cars and Coffee event in the Sierra foothills.

Remembering our friends and members who are no longer with us

David Ward

1945 – 2020

David was in the Moab Desert when he suddenly collapsed and died.  He had just successfully completed a difficult Overland Rally (a victory as Judi described it).  Judi expressed that David’s death occurred while enjoying his passion for automobiles and rallies. (he participated in 3-5 rallies a year.  Because of the COVID, there will not be a service.  However, the “Checkered Flag Group” is setting up an online venue where his friends can enjoy a slide show and post messages and photo’s in Memory of David.  David was a young 75 years at the time of his death in early October.

I had the pleasure meeting David during one of our Delta drives and over the phone a couple of times before his passing and he will be forever remembered. Ciao David, Leif
