As usual, this time of year Southern California has a hot spell that reaches 100+ degrees. The day was hot and sunny, but that didn’t stop hundreds of eager car cruisers and hot rodders from bringing their cars to show off. They began arriving before noon and stayed until nearly 10 pm and as the sun began to sink the weather became perfect. The Prolong Twilight Cruise on August 29 was affected, in stead of their usual 300+ cars, the count was closer to 250. The good thing is the event is in the evening.
Eddie Tafoya and his crew brought their Kings Taco Super truck to display. Eddie is a rookie and is 3rd in the rookie standings at Irwindale Speedway and 9th overall. They set up a great looking display and the drag racers didn’t seem to mind having a NASCAR supertruck in their midst. The award for coming the farthest goes to Masako, Marina and Shota Yamashita, who were visiting from Fukuoka, Japan and they were having a great time. Mitch ‘Embo’ Bowland showed off his collapsible, polished aluminum car show boards that he makes.
The Prolong Twilight Cruise nights resume on October 3 and continue on the first Wednesday of each month for the remainder of the year.
Thanks for the show!
