Year-round Events


  • High School Apprenticeship Program
    High school age students learn the ins and outs of car care and restoration from Kingsmen members as they work on classic cars like a 1931 Model A coupe and 1934 Ford Sedan.
    • We're almost done with our 1931 Ford Model A, just the interior is left! Come check it out at our next Hot Rods on the Green car show (July 7th & 8th, 2018).

    • In 2017, the Kingsmen Car Club announced the "Kingsmen Car Club Industrial Arts Scholarship", a $1000 scholarship to help further technical training in Industrial Arts for students wishing to pursue a career in an Industrial Arts Field of their choosing.

      Students must be enrolled in a High School in Santa Cruz County, and be a graduating senior from that school. More information is available on the Scholarship Application.


      Scholarship Application
