FALLBROOK – Crowds of people traveled out to Valley Center for this year’s Fallbrook Vintage Car Show at Bates Nut Farm. More than 45 Fallbrook Vintage Car Club members and 35 students, which included the MCJROTC, Cheer Squad and Boy Scouts, volunteered to set up, direct parking, help with the merchandise and raffle booths from early morning to late afternoon, contributing to its success.
Show cars filled the field with more than 440 cars. The featured cars, the Corvairs, took the spotlight with over 31 different models represented.Attendees also stopped to learn more about the Brass Era cars that were over 100 years old.
Cars from Rat Rods to a Mercedes Ambulance were brought to show and the public took their time looking and conversing with the car show owners. The club sold more than 150 T-shirts, 71 posters and other club memorabilia while artisans and auto-related items were a big hit with more than 45 booths around the field.
Several food booths also provided lunch and snacks including one where workers used a pizza oven built into the back of an old fire engine. Everyone enjoyed the show out in the country.
