Bob Dron Ranch River Run


This just in from Michael Dobrin -

The River Ranch Run and showcase gathering of custom cars and motorcycles, hot rods and vintage trucks will be held Saturday, May 18, at Isleton’s Delta Diamond Farm, the Central Valley’s newest motoring and events center.

Admission is $10 per vehicle – and with any number of occupants. Hours for the River Ranch Run are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Refreshments and entertainment  will be available.  

Participants will have ample show space on the expansive greens of the historic  25-acre Delta Diamond Ranch estate, which is located on the Sacramento River levee road at 15175 Highway 160, just west of Isleton.

“We’re throwing the Delta Diamond open for all of our custom car and bike friends,” says Farm owner Bob Dron, who with his wife, Tracey, has turned the 125-year-old cherry orchard and Victorian home site into a major events center for weddings, car shows, corporate gatherings,  retreats and picnics.

“No stockers, please. We’re looking for two and four-wheeled creations that make a definite styling statement,” says Dron, an Isleton native and one of hot rodding’s shakers and movers for almost five decades.  For more than 30 years, the Drons set national benchmarks for Harley-Davidson motorcycle sales, marketing and merchandising in their Oakland, CA, dealership.

A member of the Oakland Roadster Show Hall of Fame, Dron has created such landmark custom motorcycles as his CycleTron in the ‘70s to his early ‘90s masterpiece, the Heritage Royale, winner of the Slonaker Award for Technical Excellence in 1992. By the time he was 20, Dron had owned dozens of custom cars and motorcycles and he still collects, restores and shows a number of his vehicles.

Sounds like a heck of a good time to me. Bruce Hotchkiss
