Hot Rods and Classic Cars

And some of the awesome Car Shows of Summer

Every Saturday morning, just about a mile from my home, hot rods, classic cars, and muscle cars gather for possibly the biggest and best weekly car show and cruise around, Donut Derelicts. People bring their cars from miles (even counties) around to take part. You can read more about this here.

But summer brings some extra special once-a-year shows to our area. Since building and restoring Hot Rods and Classic Cars is Luke’s line of business, we go to these great shows and have a wonderful time.

We started our summer car show stops at the legendary LA Roadster Show at the Pomona Fair Grounds.  At this classy event, The L.A. Roadster Club showcases the Original Hot Rod–the 1932 Deuce, along with 1928 to 1934 hot rod Roadsters, plus rows of specialty cars, coupes, sedans, woodies and wagons ranging from 1910 to 1975. This annual Father’s Day weekend event is a fundraiser to benefit worthy non-profit organizations. Here are some of the cars we saw…

Next on our list was the 75th Anniversary of the 1940 Ford, at the Forties Limited of Orange County‘s 39th Annual Forty Ford Day at La Palma Park in Anaheim. This show celebrates the 1940 Fords, but you can find other cool street rods and classics there as well…
