Share Article

Temecula Car Show will be "Cruising for the Kids."

"The Temecula Rod Run's main purpose is fundraising for the Boys and Girls Clubs in Temecula, California," said Alfred DiMora, Founder and CEO of DiMora Motorcar. "In the past, the 'Cruising for the Kids' benefit car show has been a sell-out, as over 650 cars participated last year."

The annual Rod Run is presented by P&R Foundation. President Ray Waite noted, "We have pledged to raise $175,000 to help the Boys and Girls Clubs build a new facility. The Temecula Rod Run is our key fundraiser, and we are excited to have automotive celebrities such as Alfred DiMora join our efforts."

The Rod Run brings car enthusiasts of all ages out to help the kids. Over 70,000 people came out last year to see every kind of automobile imaginable lining the streets of Old Town Temecula.

Joining DiMora at the Rod Run on Friday, October 12, will be Courtney Hansen, the former host of "Overhaulin'," "Rides: Biggest Spenders," and "Million Dollar Motors." She now hosts "Powerblock" on Spike TV and "Destination Wild" on Fox Sports Net.

"I am pleased to donate signed copies of my new book, 'The Garage Girl's Guide to Everything You Need to Know about Your Car' for the auction for the kids," said Courtney Hansen. "I will also be on hand in the DiMora Motorcar booth to greet people and sign autographs. I am happy to be part of this great event to help the Boys and Girls Clubs."

DiMora Motorcar is now creating the Natalia SLS 2 sport luxury sedan. Powered by the DiMora V16 Volcano engine erupting with 1200 horsepower, this technological showcase will sell for a cool $2 million each.

For his Grand Marshal duties, DiMora will be driving his personal Clenet Series I Roadster. DiMora built the Clenets in the 1970s and 1980s, first as production crew chief and later as Owner of Clenet Coachworks in Santa Barbara, California.

Clenets were the most elegant and expensive luxury cars produced in America at that time, and were on such TV shows as "Dallas" and "Dynasty." Clenets were purchased by many celebrities and dignitaries, including Sylvester Stallone, Farrah Fawcett, Wayne Newton, Ken Norton, Rod Stewart, Julio Iglesias, and King Hussein of Jordan.

DiMora will also be showcasing two movie cars, the JX Coupe, a one-of-a-kind specialty car, and another one-off car--never seen before--just completed for a Hollywood movie about to go into production.

Alfred DiMora cordially invites you to join thousands of other automobile enthusiasts to help the kids at the 9th Annual Temecula Rod Run Show on October 10-13, 2007. Go to to find out how you can participate. Come out and enjoy lots of fun-filled days to help make this year's Rod Run a huge success for the boys and girls!
