Rev up those engines and shine those rims, Encinitas Classic Car Nights are back!
Downtown Encinitas MainStreet Association (DEMA) is keeping their classic car fun rolling for the 14th year. Car enthusiasts can check out classics and hot rods four nights during the summer at these special events.
The nights will include car clubs at six dedicated lots:
- Charlie’s Foreign Car (F St.)
- Cardiff Classics (I St.)
- Encinitas Pizza Company (formerly Giovanni’s) will be sponsoring clubs at the Sofspra car wash lot (G St)
- The Black Sheep (J St.)
- Small Mall (E St.)
- SMOG Test Only lots (F St.)
If you own a classic car and want to show off your stuff look for the special “Recommended Parking for Classic Cars” signs along the 101 and park your beauty in one of these prime curbside spots.
To punctuate the summer car shows, classic 50s and 60s tunes will be played at three different venues. The Mar Dels will be playing at the SMOG Test Only lot, The Retro Rocketts will be rocking the courtyard in The Lumberyard shopping center (H St.), and DJ Zombeard will be spinning oldies at Cardiff Classics.
At the end of the night there will be an award ceremony at the SMOG Test Only lot and every car in attendance is eligible for an award.
Ready to rev your engine and gawk at some classic beauties? will be held on June 21, July 19, Aug. 16 and Sept. 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the lots mentioned above. These nights open to the public and free, including for those who want to display their classics.
