Classic Cars Come Together for the 2013 Cruisin For A Cure Car Show

The best classic cars in Orange County started cruising into the OC Fair & Event Center as early as 1am yesterday morning for the 2013 Cruisin For A Cure Car Show. The car show, is the largest car show of the year in Orange County, where car lovers can look under the hood of almost every brand of fully restored classic cars.

The kids Grandpa has been restoring classic cars all of his life, and he brought his fully restored classic car to be on display at the Cruisin For A Cure Car Show. Car enthusiast asked questions about the restoration process, the engine and every detail about the car.

We brought the kids to spend the morning at the car show, and it is always one of their favorite event to attend. The kids got to see many different types of old cars, many that they have never seen before in their lives, fully restored to the exact way they looked on the showroom floor. It was a chance to talk to our children about the rich history of vintage auto manufacturing that once dominated the world, and how auto manufacturing has changed significantly over the past couple of decades here in the United States.

The kids not only got to see hundreds of beautifully restored classic cars, but they also got to see some fun novelty cars. There was a person at the car show who had purchased an old autopia car from Disneyland, and turned it into a legal street car. There was also a car that resembled the batmobile!

Cruisin For A Cure was much more than just a car show, but a way to raise funds for the City of Hope Prostate Cancer Program. The car show is about saving lives, and since 2001 they have provided free tests that have referred over 3,000 men to their doctors for testing. The goal of the car show is to raise awareness of the importance of having regular check-ups and screenings for men in Orange County.

Cruisin For A Cure is a one-day car show and will return next year. For dates and times of other car shows coming to Orange County, check out our events calendar that is updated daily.
