The Classic Pismo Beach

The Classic at Pismo Beach

For the past 34 years Pismo Beach has hosted The Classic by Just Cruzin’ Productions, a huge car show that brings car owners and lovers from around the globe to our beach city on the central coast.  Hundreds of cars line the streets and pier in Pismo for three days, and major corporations like Ford Motor Co, GM Performance, Budweiser, and CarQuest Auto Parts bring displays to promote their new products.

This year we got to attend The Classic, and we were just amazed at all the cars.  Growing up in California we are no strangers to car shows, but the vehicles on display in Pismo were just incredible.  And it wasn’t just a bunch of restored cars either! From old Cadillacs to brand new Ford Trucks everything was on display, and the owners were more than willing to show off their pride and joy, and talk about their car or truck all day long.

In addition to the car show, The Classic hosts a Sunset Cruise where the first 200 cars to register parade around downtown Pismo.  Typically held the second night of the event, this year the cruise night took place on June 1 at 6:00 p.m. and followed a route along Price, Main, and Pomeroy where locals and visitors could see the cars in action, and hear (and feel!) the thunder they bring everywhere they go.  This year the $25 vehicle registration fees supported the Folds of Honor Military School.

Over the years The Classic has also expanded to include a beer garden, live music, food and retail vendors, and a charity auction.  In past years proceeds from the auction have benefited Folds of Honor Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, Loma Linda Veteran’s Hospital, and the Pismo Beach K-9 Unit.
