Cruisin’

After our previously mentioned lunch in Bodega Bay, we spent an afternoon and early evening in Santa Rosa. As we browsed the shops of this delightful town, it became apparent that there was to be an classic car event that evening; seeing two Bel Airs at a crossroads was a hint.

We decided to stay and see the cars. From about five they drove up 4th Street and parked so we could stroll along the road and look that a large collection of cars from the 50s,60s, and 70s. Automobiles from a time when chrome and fins were the pinnacle of style. There was a car whose bonnet (hood) looked longer than the entire length of a Smart car. They we lovingly restored, with polished paintwork, and gleaming engines.

You may be able to see in the background of the above photo, several kids participating in the event by cruising up the street in replica pull along carts.

Mind you of the many cars we saw yesterday on the streets of Santa Rosa, the most beautiful was there before the event.
