Strangers Car Club show pictures

This time of the year for the past 10 years the Strangers CC has it’s annual car show & BBQ at History Park in San Jose, California and for the past couple of years I’ve been wanting to go, but something always prevented me from going. Whether it be work, being out of town or just plain too lazy to drive an hour or so down 680. Well this year was the 10th anniversary of the show and I did not have to work, I was in town and it was just to nice of a Sunday to be lazy. So I packed up the camera bag, flipped the A/C on and down 680 I sailed. Hoping by the time I got there that I would be feeling a little bit better than I did earlier that morning.

About a hour later I pull up on History Park. History Park is a very cool setting with old historic houses set in the park, hence the name. I stroll up and pay my 2 bucks and I’m off to check out some sick buckets!

There was a host of clubs from locals like San Jose Impalas & Rompacoglioni cc to near by  Santa Cruz clubs like, Dashboard Dolls.

As I roamed around checking out the show I strolled over to the booth tents to see who showed up. The showing included Gearhead & Deluxe mag, Crown sunglasses, pinstripping by Rich Luna among many other vendors and booths. And if you were hungry… Famous Ted was working the Q on the other side of the park.

As far as the cars, a mix of custom classics, bombs and rust buckets. The vibe and atmosphere of the show was awesome. After the awards were given and the raffle passed out it’s last prize I figured it was time to split. Walking back to the ride I thought about how crappy I felt that morning, needless to say I was feeling much better now.
