The San Clemente Car Show, held on June 9, brought over 25,000 car enthusiasts into the community to awe the 260 buffed-out vintage cars lining Avenida Del Mar.

During the five-hour event, attendees got to see a variety of models— from a dozen or so Woodies, gullwing Mercedes, classic muscle cars from the ’50s and ’60s and a 1923 Ford T-Bucket.

Proceeds from the annual event enable the Downtown Business Association to provide greater opportunities within the SC business community in years past.

David Anderson, the chairman of the SCCS for the last 14 years, said he was very happy overall.

“I’m very pleased with the crowds this year,” Anderson said. “We were fortunate with the weather being overcast, too. Too much sun just overheats the cars and rain has never been good for bringing out the crowds.”

The event may be joined by a 50-to-60 car show organized by members of the North Beach Community Association next year. A “meet and greet” event for participants and a Saturday night cruise are also under consideration.
