A twilight cruise back into the past
Posted April 11, 2007

Custom built cars took center stage on April 4 in a show hosted by the Cal-Rods Car Club.

The show took place in front of the National Hot Rod Association Motorsports Museum at the Pomona Fairplex for onlookers to enjoy the custom built machines.

Chicken sandwiches and lots of beer was being sold to car lovers in the small venue of about 100 showpiece cars.

Many come not just to look at the cars but to enjoy the company of others.

“It’s really a nice relaxing place for good companionship and nice cars,” retired electrician Mickey Maguire said.

An addition to the outside showcase, the NHRA Motosports Museum was open to anyone interested in knowing some historical background.

The museum is a great way to learn the history of racecars, motorcycles and even helmets.

A 1940 candy apple red Mercury Coupe was a big attraction for some onlookers.

Many of the show’s attendees have been there more than once to show off their prize centerpieces.

“I’ve been here a lot,” said Keith Robinson, a designing engineer. “I come every time.”

Some women have actually been there more than once as well to support their husbands and to show off their cars.

“This is my second time here and me and my husband are showing off our 1937 Ford,” Linda Cole, a customer service representative said.

The attendees were mostly older generation men showing off their cars and talking to others on color, model, engine and finding out what techniques to use on their next creations.

Many father and son duos came so that the love of automobiles can be passed on from generation to generation.

The Twilight Cruise is a fantastic way for those car lovers interested in finding out more about the different cars and talk to people with similar interests.

It is also appropriate for those curious about cars and for those who just want to be a spectator and enjoy some good food and great cars.

“This is one of the greatest venues I ever go to,” Maguire said.

The Twilight Cruise is held the first Wednesday of every month except September because of the Los Angeles County Fair.

The NHRA Motorsports Museum is open year round Wednesday through Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
