The 14th Annual Montrose’s Hot Rod & Classic Car Show hosted by the Early Rodders car club and NHRA announcer/MC Dave McClellan attracts hundreds of area residents as well as automobile aficionados from all over Los Angeles to the Montrose Shopping Park. More than 50 Classic Cars, 200 Customs & Hot Rods and their owners attend this July gathering located in a picturesque mountain suburb North of Glendale/Los Angeles. Classic Cars and Hot Rods display in the 2200-2400 Blocks of Honolulu from Verdugo Road as far west as Las Palmas Ave. and are judged for trophies. Exotics and nostalgia ‘cackle cars’ burping Nitro are seen on Ocean View Boulevard.
The event has a block party vibe and Montrose Shopping Park merchants invite the community to shop, eat and attend a local farmers market too. Several stores offer special items and discounts at the semi-annual Montrose Sidewalk Sale! This show is a good one, the food is great, the cars are cool and it’s a perfect for the entire family. Don’t miss it next year! See: www.shopmontrose.com (photos: Anna Marco)
