  1. It is nice to see the classics out and being enjoyed for what they were. In today’s context they may be the bane of our very existance, but for one night in their historical context they are wonders to behold.

  2. I’m old enough to remember the Barris car museum on Hollywood Boulevard a block west of the Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Went there a bunch of times when I was a Hollywood punk kid to marvel at all the cool rides he had a hand in designing.

  3. This was always one of my favorite LA events. We’d ride our bikes over and have a ball. I’m still looking for that perfect ’64 Impala SS (and my wife’s permission to buy it) 8-)

  4. “Cruisin Back to the 50’s” brings back memories of my first car; a used light blue ’52 Olds Rocket 88.
    It was great; especially on those 16 hour straight thru drives on a weekend pass from basic training in Augusta GA., to see my sweetheart in NY. How could they ever give up that wonderful brand? (I think it was that awful last ad campaign they ran; “It’s not your father’s Olds”). Anyhow, if you see a restored Olds from the 50’s at the show, kick the tires for me.
