First Friday Road Show - 6/2




This month the First Friday Road Show was  held at the Annual Fish Fry in Costa Mesa.

 

Approximately 200 cars participated in the  event. The first 100 cars and drivers to  arrive were given a free fish dinner and a  drink. Everyone also got a goodie bag  with car care products. Not bad for a free  show. I found three other British cars at the  show besides my Sprite; another Bugeye,  a Spridget, an Aston Martin, and a BSA  motorcycle. The Auto Club had a very nice  1961 Dodge Polaris Highway Patrol Car on  display (this was a real Patrol Car),  complete with all the latest technology of  1961.

 

During the event several drawings were  held: giving away car care products, a  $500.00 detail job, two flight lessons, and  various other items.

 

The People’s Choice was a 1940 Ford, Best  of the Lions Club was a Chevy Chevelle,  Best Paint a 1969 Ford Fastback, Best Interior a 1937 Chevy,  Best of Show a  1955 Chevy  Pick-up, and  Club with the  Best  Attendance was  the Orange  County  Mustang Club,  they had 20 cars  at the event.

 

Looking forward  to this event  next year, free  food, sign me  up! The next  gathering for  the First Friday Road Show will be back at Costa  Mesa City Hall on 7/7/ 2017.
