Vintage Car Show draws record-breaking crowd

All the components were perfect – a beautifully sunny day, over 300 gleaming vintage cars, music and excitement in the air –

to break the attendance record at the 49th annual Vintage Car Show, sponsored by the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club.

"A record crowd turned out to attend the show, the weather cooperated, public parking was ample...," said car club representative Chuck Tillotson. The show is held each year by the organization to raise charitable funds for dozens of local projects that benefit residents of all ages.

Potter Jr. High provided the on-the-lawn setting for 23 different classifications of vintage vehicles that were brought from far and wide across the country to compete for awards.

According to Tillotson, "This year’s car show committee, headed up by chairman Mike McGuire and a crew of 16 members, began planning for the event back in October of last year with the goal of producing Fallbrook’s ‘best-ever’ vintage car show." And the group achieved its goal.

"The results of their planning provided a show with a large array of over 300-plus vehicles, abundant food vendor booths, swap meet galleries, and merchandise sales outlets," he explained.

The vehicles on display (mandated to be at least 25 years old) included those from the brass era, Model A’s/T’s, to domestic stock cars, woodies, trucks, motorcycles, and a few unrestored models that gave those attending the opportunity to see at least one or two favorites from the past.

"The featured cars for the 2014 show were the Chrysler cars that focused on the "finned Mopars" of the 1955 through the 1961 period," said Tillotson. "Twenty featured cars were entered in this class. They came from all over the country including a 1956 Chrysler New Yorker four-door sedan from Pasadena and a 1960 Dodge Pioneer two-door hardtop from Arcadia.

After a record-breaking 49th year, members of the club are more determined than ever to make next year - the 50th anniversary - even better.
