Golden State Classics Car Show

Cruise Night, Paso Robles CA

Friday night was the Cruise night for the Golden State Classics Car Show.  A friend and I took our kids and went the 6 blocks down the street from my house to get curb side seats.  It’s funny to me that my 6 yr old daughter already shares my love of Classics… she saw a purple hot rod drive past us earlier that day and got so exited, “A hot rod, I LOVE hot rods!!”  My favorite car of the night has to be the car in the first photo- because there is just something super sexy and exciting about big loud engines and flame throwers (which unfortunately I didn’t capture in any of the pics).  Classics from the 1950’s are more my style, but there were some pretty hot beefy sounding muscle cars also.  And just for fun, I even threw in the pic of the fixed up Pinto!!  I had 2 friends cruisin’ their classics, and a few friends with awesome rides that didn’t have theirs in the cruise…. we will have to fix that next year and get all of us in on it!  My only disappointment was that I didn’t get my car down there, but I will be starting on my painting prep this week and by next year my “Pink” 1957 Plymouth Savoy will definitely be a part of our local Cruise Night (and many others too I hope).  I was happy, yet disappointed, to see there was not one other Plymouth Savoy, Fury, or Belvedere (no “Christine’s”)– disappointed because they’re just plain awesome to look at (especially the year I have with the big tail fins), but happy because mine will stand out that much more when I do get in Cruise Nights and Car Shows!  Hope you enjoy some of the cars from this years Golden State Classics Car Show Cruise Night…

About Rockabelle Bombshell

I am a single mom of a 13 yr old boy and 6 yr old girl. I love DIY projects of all types, and everything Rockabilly! I love the Icons of the 50's, as well as classic cars, pinups, retro appliances and decor, and victorian gothic furniture. I think of myself as a tattooed 1950's transplant... definitely born in the wrong era! I love thrifting and "junking"- I rarely see junk, I see things for their possibilities! I started this blog to document my DIY adventures as I attempt to upcycle and recreate my furniture and home decor, add a Rockabilly touch to as much clothing as I can, make life fun for my kids, and share my love of Rockabilly!

  1. Three scrolls through later and I’m still swooning something fierce! What an awesome array of classic cars! The ambulance in particular really knocked my socks off. That’s one of the oldest restored/preserved vintage ambulances I’ve ever seen. I tell you, the next time I have to ride in one, I sure wish it could be that one (the modern ones may be high tech, but they have a seriously lack of vintage-ness to them! :)).

    Wishing you a stellar weekend, dear gal!
    ♥ Jessica
