FIAT America is proud and ecstatic to be celebrating 50 years of fun with our FIATs. We have exciting events and tours all year long, but we are focusing much of our effort on a 5-day event centered around Concorso Italiano held in Monterey at the Black Horse Golf Club. Concorso is a mecca for all Italian vehicles. This year we plan to make a large showing of FIATs at Concorso. Come show off what you have. By all means, your cars do not have to be in “Concourse” condition. Daily drivers and projects welcome.

Founded in the summer of 1969, FIAT America’s mission is to promote, support and enjoy the ownership, preservation and image of FIATs, and their related Italian marques.

As one of the country's oldest and most-active independent car clubs, we accomplish our mission by enjoying our cars, with monthly events ranging from driving events such as tours, driver schools, rallying and racing all over California, as well as social events including BBQs, wine tasting, dinner parties and our annual banquet. Our members have an eclectic selection of FIATS, ranging from pre-war cars to cars from the 60’s and 70’s, to brand new 500s, 124 Spiders and Abarths. We welcome anybody who is interested in Italian cars.


To participate in any or all FIAT America events and to qualify for the reduced hotel rate, there is a $24 registration fee per person or $40/couple. The fee covers all route instructions; some hospitality expenses; administration costs and some FIAT America swag. Registration is open to anyone. You do not need to be a member of FIAT America to register.

  • Access to reserved rooms and special rate at Ridgemark Resort and Golf Course in Hollister.

This event is put on à la carte. If there is an event you do not wish to participate in, you are free to spend the time on your own. You can enjoy the area, or attend alternative “Monterey Car Week” events, listed in the flyer.
