The beautiful drive down the 101 Hwy offers gorgeous weather, scenic views, and the ideal scene in which to throw an amazing car show. This month was no exception, as we stopped off in the tranquil city of Santa Barbara, California, where Nite Life Car Club hosted its 21st annual car show. This established June show seems to get better and better with time, and the show’s family atmosphere and beautiful location often brings people from far and wide to enjoy a day with the region’s finest automobiles.
The one-day car show and arena hop were held at Santa Barbara’s Earl Warren Showgrounds, off the U.S. 101. Making the trip were cars from all over California, including the San Fernando Valley, Oxnard, San Diego, Los Angeles, and the surrounding areas. Some of the car clubs that made their way out for this show included Reality, Stylistics, Techniques, High Class, Majestics, Lifestyle, Premiere, Good Times, USO, Stylistics, Plebez, Connected, Reality, Imperials, Cruceros, Carnales Unidos, La Gente, Ontario Classics, Style, Aztec Image, Exclusives and Style Unlimited C.C.
All told, the indoor/outdoor event had over 400 cars, competing in over 30 different classes. The cars were parked throughout the fairgrounds and the candy paint and show chrome sparkled and attracted enthusiasts of all ages. The Nite Life crew bent over backwards to accommodate all of the clubs and individuals that attended, and with such great hospitality, this show will only get bigger and better with time. The one-day show brought in a huge crowd that packed the venue with over 10,000 spectators, eager to see the best of the So Cal West.
Mark your calendars because next year’s show has already been scheduled for the first weekend in June, and you won’t want your family to miss it!
