Nothing makes those of us involved with preserving and enjoying vintage vehicles prouder than to hear about the generosity of passionate car/truck people helping others in need. We're especially pleased with the work being performed by the Southern California guys and gals associated with the Cruise For A Cure. We're quite sure the clubs from the '50s that began this socially responsible behavior would be pleased to know it has survived to the next several generations of hot rod and custom car lovers.
"This year's Cruise For A Cure gathered 3,327 registered cars at the Orange County Fairgrounds (in late September), mostly hot rods and classic trucks, Corvettes, Dodge Vipers, and PT Cruisers. This event was organized primarily to support Prostate Cancer Research," states organizer Debbie Baker. "Over 18,000 spectators participated, (805 men were voluntarily tested) and the organizers raised $231,700 for research against this deadly health problem." Our hats are off to all the volunteers, entries, and sponsors who made this generous contribution possible.
In attendance were a number of prominent car personalities, a respectable group of manufacturers, and various fire departments that brought out their vintage fire trucks for this one-day fund-raising event. Thanks again to everyone who supported the event. Here are some of the trucks and sights that we found in our viewfinder.
