Food trucks were available to feed the hungry including the popular grill from the Huntington Beach Firefighters Assocation.

Many of the owners were more than willing to talk about where this located their prized vehicle, how many hours they spent restoring it and the fun they have driving it.

But it was more than just a regular car show, it was a show to remember our veterans and there were booths set up with information about programs of interest to them.
