The 29th Annual "Cruisin' Brea Classic Car Show" took place on Father's Day and brought a huge crowd to the downtown city of Brea, CA. Brea is a city about 33 miles away from Los Angeles in the southeast direction. The city is usually busy with shoppers with their famous shopping mall. However, it still retains the small city's easy vibe and a quiet neighborhood for families and locals. 


This year's Father's day is pretty hot. The sun showed its full strength even at the relatively early hour of 10 am. There was not a cloud in sight. It's a typical picture-perfect southern California weather, especially for car shows.


The show area is the main street of the shopping area. Birch street was full of shiny show cars, surrounded by busy shops and restaurants where families can enjoy coffees, sweets, beers, or full-blown breakfast and lunch. One can tell that this is a perfect Father's day celebration. 


At the show, one could enjoy many cool sports cars from the golden age with stylish designs and shiny exteriors, and of course well restored or maintained engines and car parts.


If you are a classic car aficionado, you could easily spend several hours checking out these great show-room level auto gems and talking to their owners for car histories, stories associated with their car restorations as well as all kinds of special tips and challenges from these experts. Many different makes were at the show, including (from the award list),
