California Car Show – The Cajon Classic Cruze

California hot rod shows – This is the 2017 open for the weekly ‘Cajon Classic Cruze’ auto show.

There are couple of things that are unique about the show, are a couple of things. First of all, starting in mid April, it’s everyone’s the evening from 5 PM to about 8 PM until the end of October.

The second thing that makes this show unique, is the fact that it’s totally free to enter your vehicle. Naturally, it’s also free for the spectators. Yes, this is sponsored by the local merchants, Chamber of Commerce and a local casino.

Prior to the trophy presentation all the winning vehicles are lined up at the town park, and then after some entertainment each vehicle drives up to the stage area and is presented with their trophy.

Lastly, this hot Rod and auto show is unique because each week og the show has a specific theme. What I’m talking about here, is that one theme could be: cars of the 50s, another would be racing cars and dragsters, cars used in the movies,bike night, muscle cars, Corvette night and Mustang madness.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Over time, the car has evolved beyond being a means of transportation or status symbol and into a subject of interest and a cherished hobby amongst many people in the world, who appreciate cars for their craftsmanship, their performance, as well as the vast arrays of activities one can take part in with his/her car. People who have a keen interest in cars and/or participate in the car hobby are known as “Car Enthusiasts”.

One major aspect of the hobby is collecting. Cars, especially classic vehicles, are appreciated by their owners as having aesthetic, recreational and historic value. Such demand generates investment potential and allows some cars to command extraordinarily high prices and become financial instruments in their own right.

A second major aspect of the car hobby is vehicle modification, as many car enthusiasts modify their cars to achieve performance improvements or visual enhancements. Many subcultures exist within this segment of the car hobby, for example, those building their own custom vehicles, primarily appearance-based on original examples or reproductions of pre-1948 US car market designs and similar designs from the World War II era and earlier from elsewhere in the world, are known as hot rodders, while those who believe cars should stay true to their original designs and not be modified are known as “Purists”.

In addition, motorsport (both professional and amateur) as well as casual driving events, where enthusiasts from around the world gather to drive and display their cars, are important pillars of the car hobby as well. Notable examples such events are the annual Mille Miglia classic car rally and the Gumball 3000 supercar race.

Many car clubs have been set up to facilitate social interactions and companionships amongst those who take pride in owning, maintaining, driving and showing their cars. Many prestigious social events around the world today are centered around the hobby, a notable example is the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance classic car show.
