The Classic Cars Cruise Night took place tonight in Encinitas California.

There isn't really too much to say, since the real fun was in the looking...at dozens of classic cars from all over Southern California lined up along the Coast Road/Route 101 in downtown Encinitas.

A classic band playing Beach Boy songs (Little Deuce Coupe for example - a You-tube playlist video) and other vintage car songs at the Smog Center entertained folks throughout the evening.

There was a good crowd on both sides of the street taking in these beautiful autos and talking to their owners, the traffic in town was a mess, the weather was balmy, and it was a perfect evening to stroll downtown Encinitas and enjoy the event and the shopping and restaurants.

The photos of the cars really say it all, and I was only able to see a portion of all that was there. Enjoy the photos!

Jeff....  I am not usually into the car shows, classic cars, and especially muscle cars... but I do love the older Mustangs and Porches that are restored....  the old model T's are interesting also.

Hi Jeff, I keep forgetting how great the photobucket slideshow is. These pictures of all these old cars are great. This event looks like great fun. The last antique car I attended was in Dallas. I met an artist at the Sawdust in Laguna and he would take a photo, black out most of the car photo and do the most incredible chrome paint re-design I have ever seen. And they were expensive and well worth the price. The way he did them was awesome.

Jeff - good to hear from you. I am certainly more of a fan of some cars than others, but they were all pretty impressive. I guess jaguars are a fave of mine.

William - it was great fun to see all these cars, adn I know I missed a bunch of them, but there is another class cars night next month I believe. That Laguna artist sounds pretty interesting - would love to see what he does.

Jeff - I love these classic car shows!  What a great slideshow.  I really enjoyed seeing so many of the classic makes and models many of which were around in my younger days.  Those mag wheels are the bomb!!

Donna - interesting that you would say that. I was fascinated by the wheels which is why I started taking pics. Amazing - what we have today is SOOO commonplace. Scary how much we remember, isn't it?

Tom - both of these were VERY cool. Not sure what my fave was, tho'.

Hannah - that is so neat. The leather was VERY cool in some of these cars. I took only a few interior photos. I would have like to have sat in some of them. What a history, and stories they have to tell. You have a fun history to remember your Dad by.
