FALLBROOK – At Fallbrook Vintage Car Club President Roy Moosa’s request, club members John Waugh and Mike Johnson took on the task of finding a suitable location for their annual car show poster. After looking at several potential sites they both concluded that the Rainbow Oaks Restaurant on Old 395 would be the place.
They both felt its historical significance, overall rustic appearance, association with other local car clubs and its bike and old car-friendly orientation would make it the perfect venue. Artist Jim Krogle, this year’s painter, visited the location, took some photographs and went to work on the painting.
The original art was presented to Duke and Jonell Maples, the owners of the restaurant on March 6. Events Chairman Joe Cusimano and wife Jeanne arranged for a luncheon at the restaurant to coincide with the presentation ceremony which preceded the Fallbrook Historical Society’s review of historical buildings in the area. About 40 car club members attended the event, many driving their vintage cars.
The poster, when suitably framed, will be hung on the wall in the most prominent place behind the bar and will act as a perpetual reminder of the 45th annual Fallbrook Vintage Car Show.
