California Classic Car Shows
Classic car shows are organized every year all around the world. These shows are important events for classic car admirers, because in this way they can exchange information and discover new antique cars that were just found.
California is one of the states that have always hosted many classic car shows. An important city from California that organizes impressive classic car shows is San Diego. The admirers of classic cars from the 50’s or the 60’s should go in San Diego if they want to see live some authentic classic cars. At these California classic car shows you can enjoy the classic car shows and also the activities specially organized to entertain the participants.
The largest classic car show from San Diego is the Cajon Classic Cruise. The event takes place every year in June. It’s hosted on Main Street in downtown El Cajon. Each one of us can participate at the event because the entrance is free. The show displays more than 500 cars such as hot rods, motorcycles and custom cars that value more than $10 million.
Another California Classic Car Show from San Diego is the Thursday Night Back to the 50’s Classic Car Show. The event is held in La Mesa and is organized in June, July and August every Thursday evening. Every evening, the best four classic cars and the best motorcycle are awarded a prize. The variety of car styles is impressive. You can admire antique cars, motorcycles, horseless carriages and hot rods. Every week more than 4,500 people of all ages come and have fun at this event.
In Escondido, every year, the Cruisin’ Grand is held. That’s another classic car show that begins in April and ends in September. The classic cars displayed at this event are American cars made in 1973 and the years before that. The show includes vintage, muscle and hot rod cars. The 2010 Cruisin’ Grand was a real success. The season attendance achieved the impressive number of 200,000 people.
The newest addition to the list of California classic cars shows is the Rods &Woodies Show. This is an event that takes place one the third Thursday of each month during the summer season. The interesting part of the event is the fact that you can admire classic woodies cars on the beach. The 2010 show was held on the coastal beach city of Encinitas, only 15 miles north of San Diego. It was the largest California Classic Car Show that hosted wooden bodied cars and I can even say it was the largest in the world. The stars of the classic cars show were of course, our eccentric cars. More than 300 wooden cars participated at this impressive show.
The show awarded several prizes to the wooden cars that were displayed at the Moonlight State Beach. Among the trophies that rewarded the elegance and the stateliness of these classic cars were: the trophy for the Best Sixty Surfer Woodie, Best Hot Rod and Best License Plate. The visitors could also talk to car owners or do some swimming and surfing.
I hope I gave you some good ideas for your summer trip. For classic car lovers the California Classic Car Shows, especially the San Diego ones, are places that help you find the most amazing and elegant classic cars. Even if you are a classic car admirer or you only love to travel, California, and especially San Diego, is one of the most amazing places in America.
