Route 66 Rendezvous Classic Car Show Ends Four Day Run Today

By Nikki Garrett Metzger

(Victor Valley) – It’s that time of year when classic cars take over 35 blocks of downtown San Bernardino for the 22nd Annual Stater Bros. Route 66 Rendezvous. Featuring more than 1,700 cool and classy pre-1974 cars, the Rendezvous also includes nonstop entertainment, contests, car exhibits, vendors and food, as well as a kids’ zone with rides, games, BMX stunt show, and a historical truck display.

Produced by the San Bernardino Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Rendezvous is the city’s signature event and Southern California’s largest cruisin’ classic car show, attracting about a half-million car buffs from across the country. Several groups traveled across Route 66 to experience the Rendezvous first-hand.

Mohammad Alam, a local realtor and classic car buff, took his newly acquired 1974 Dodge Charger to the event. “I’m taking my Charger to show this year.  It has had a lot of work done including a Holly Header, Adam Brooke Manifold, Flow Master exhaust system, new brake system, air shocks in back, and upgraded wheels and tires,” explained Alam.

When asked what he was looking forward to at the event, Alam said, “I love to see all of the unique classic cars from 1905 to 1974. I like meeting the people that come from all over the country to see them and participate in the show.”

The four-day event wraps up today. For more info, call 909-891-1151; or www.route-66.org
