Thank you for agreeing to join us to help us Revive & Rediscover Chinatown San Francisco!

Since Covid started to emerge itself last Spring Chinatown SF has been hammered by a string of events. First tourism and visitors plummeted by over 70% as people stayed away because they thought they would contract Covid by being near Chinese Americans. This was especially disheartening as in the Bay Area we tend to view ourselves as inclusive and most would not argue that within 50 miles of San Francisco is the most educated population in the United States. Unfortunately, that education didn't prevent people from staying away due to unfounded and false fear Chinese Americans would spread Covid-19 to them. This was a MAJOR problem as Chinatown SF depends on over 50% of it’s revenue from outside visitors such as tourist. Then the next blow happened… the state of CA locked down the entire state for months decimating small businesses which depended on daily revenues to stay alive. Then came the social justice protest and riots which destroyed and looted Chinatown businesses which made a bad situation that much worse. And to make things even worse crimes against Asian/ Chinese Americans EXPLODED in the Bay Area where we’re at… especially against the elderly and women.  The violence against the Asian community created MORE fear for visitors going to Chinatown and San Francisco which keep many people away.  

Enough was enough… I couldn’t sit back anymore and just watch the community which helped shape me be destroyed in front of my eyes. Chinatown SF has quietly existed in the USA for over 170 years and was crumbling before my eyes.  On May 22nd me and good friend Chris Chow met with community leaders to discuss our plan of holding the largest car show in the history of Chinatown to help bring traffic and victors back to Chinatown. All proceeds for this event will be donated to Chinatown Merchants United Association of San Francisco (EIN 84-4767424) which is a 501c non-profit established to help merchants and the citizens of Chinatown SF.  This event is born out of our desire to help give back to Chinatown SF which has given so much to both of us and helped shape who we are. Chris as a child would go to Chinatown SF with his father to buy groceries from their home on the peninsula. While I spent most of many summers with my brother with my Grandmother in Chinatown in a SRO (10x10 room) off Pacific Ave… we were poor but rich with life and love from our community. We feel it is our obligation to help since we have the means and I the platform to help drive support from our car community.

Our goal will be to raise $50,000 to help people and business in need while pumping back $500,000 into the community from visitors during Chinatown Car Weekend.  Chinatown San Francisco is one of the poorest communities in the San Francisco/ Silicon Bay Area.  We want to use this event to help local Bay Area Communities “Rediscover Chinatown”. What Chinatown needs is consistent foot traffic… we want to bring 1000’s of people back to Chinatown the weekned of the show to help local merchants and it’s citizens. Registration for the car show will be $100 per car and all participants will need to sign a pledge to spend at least another $100 the day of the show to pump money back to local Chinatown businesses.  Participation in the car show will be limited to 72 cars.

Recommended Hotel Accomidations

Both of the Grant Plaza & SW Hotel are excellent choices for lodging while attending this show.  Both are on the outskirts of Chinatown and are very nice inside.  The main differences are their prices and parking arrangement.  SW Hotel has great secured parking available with 24/7 in and out garages.  Grant Plaza uses a 450 Sutter Garage which is a large garage which has ALOT of walk in and out traffic.  Sutter garage does close after 7PM on Saturday & 6PM Sunday there i no in and out.  

TPS Motorsports and their staff will be using SW Hotel.  If people are interested we can host a photoshoot with our inhouse photographer who will be at the event all weekend.  Below is are some pictures of our C8 Corvette in the SW Garage
