Cruisin' Grand July 2011 Newsletter
Hello everyone and thanks again for your support of Cruisin Grand ® , one of the largest and most attended cruises in California.
For those of you that have visited us in Escondido, you know that the past month has been a busy one. Cruisin’ Grand would like to thank the host car clubs on the past month including:
Pick-ups Limited The Model T Club
The Model A Club The Early Ford V8 Club

Each of these clubs brought out some fantastic vintage iron to delight the crowd and we couldn’t have done it without each and every host club.

We were honored to once again have the AFX Cars and a Carlsbad reunion join us at Cruisin’ Grand on June 24th. The Cruisin’ Grand Staff would like to personally thank the Nostalgic AFX Club including Marv Riser and John Richman for bringing their racecars out during AFX Night and Carlsbad Reunion! This night is typically one of the most popular on Grand and this year was no exception. Who can resist running over as the owners fire up their race cars for the crowd? If you’d like to see them again, come out to Barona Raceway Saturday 07/16/2011
Hot Rods & Custom Stuff Customer and Employee Appreciation Night
On July 8thand in observance of National Collector Car Appreciation Day one of our most valued long-term supporters, Hot Rods & Custom Stuff hosted their customers and employees for a dinner on North Broadway. In addition to being the weekly sponsor, Randy Clark was able to assemble quite a crowd of impressive vintage creations for everyone to enjoy.
For those of you that don’t know Randy, here is a little background. Originally he was into Harley's back in the 60's. Over time his bike interests evolved into hot rods, and by 1980 he was building cars out of his home garage. By 1989, he was building cars for so many other people that he outgrew the garage and opened a new facility. He called it Hot Rods & Custom Stuff, and he hasn't had an empty bay since. From there the rest of history and we are pleased that many of Randy’s creations make it to Grand for all to see.
Thanks you Randy Clark for being a huge supporter of Cruisin’ Grand !
