Restoration Road coming with 54th annual Fallbrook Vintage Car Show


Last updated 5/6/2019 at 10:20am

Hotrods like this roadster are one of the featured cars at the 2019 Fallbrook Vintage Car Club Car Show, May 26.

FALLBROOK – Added to the event two years ago, Restoration Road is becoming a huge draw for the 54th annual Fallbrook Vintage Car Show, Sunday, May 26, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Pala Mesa Resort. The show and parking are free to visitors.

Restoration Road is where vendors who provide restoration services and parts will gather to demonstrate their capabilities to show visitors. In addition, an expert pinstriper will be there performing live demonstrations of his artistry.

The featured vehicles this year are 20 hot rods and custom cars and trucks. The size of the engines, blowers and the huge amount of chrome, stainless steel and polished aluminum will be in the crosshairs of professional and amateur photographers alike, all thrilled by the shutter-ready selection of legends of the hot rod world.

Want to jump back in time from the hot rods and customs and back to the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries? Head 40 yards to the east side of the show on Fairway 9, and find up to 25 brass-era horseless carriages. In previous years, the show saw a 1899 Peugeot three wheeler, a 1902 "Curved Dash" Oldsmobile and Locomobiles. For Ford gearheads, the Ford Tin Lizzies, Model Ts, will be right up their alley.

After guests see, admire and drool over the four hundred, plus, show cars, take time to try the culinary offerings or the beer and wine in its own special garden tent and maybe a bloody mary or two. If that is not enough, then visit the expected 80 to 90 swap meet vendor booths with everything from vintage car parts, to jewelry, art, antiques, collectables and on and on and on.

The Children's Area at the north end of the North Show Field will have bounce houses and other attractions.

New this year, food vendors Hey Sugar, Hello Cookie will serve sweet treats and Ivibe coffee to get the juices flowing in the morning. Food is served all day, beginning with Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1924 serving up breakfast burritos and later hamburgers. The Aquaterra Restaurant also serves breakfast.

Carl's will provide sausages and hot dogs. Dang Brothers Pizza will prepare wood-fired pizza on-site. There is also Country Kettle Corn; Rib Shack will serve smoked barbecue sandwiches along with their widely acclaimed side orders and Carl's Hawaiian Shaved Ice will serve chilly favorites, along with snow cones and beverages sold by Boy Scout Troop 735.

The other featured car of the car show is custom cars like this modified T-bucket.

Traffic flow has been engineered to provide much faster access to the show and public parking. The Fallbrook Vintage Car Show will again use the volunteer San Diego Senior Sheriff's Volunteers team headed up by Jack Wood and Dennis Knight.
