Skeletons driving cobwebbed classic cars amid pumpkins galore? 

That was how Main Street in downtown El Cajon was decked out for “Trunk or Treat” on Oct. 25, for the last weekly Cajon Classic Cruise show of the season. The classic vehicles are usually polished and shined to show off, but for the Halloween-themed night, many were costumed themselves for scary fun. Children and families wandered along the street from car to van to truck, asking for trick or treat sweets and enjoying the show.

Children and families wandered along the street from car to van to truck, asking for trick or treat sweets and enjoying the show.

Tony Cirar of El Cajon brought out his 1951 black Buick Special, its trunk full of tubs of candies. The driver and front-seat passenger in the spooky black car were skeletons with flashing red eyes. Always family owned, the original mileage on the classic Buick is 63,000 miles. Its interior is original, and the car has been repainted only once. Cirar and his brother-in-law, Louie George, drove cross-country to Chillicothe, Ohio, to collect the vehicle eight years ago. 

The Cajon Classic Cruise is Southern California’s largest weekly car show, attracting over 50,000 attendees annually. Parking spaces along Main Street are reserved for the vehicles.

The shows are staged on Wednesday evenings from April through October each year, and “Trunk or Treat” during this car show season was one of four of these events featuring full street closure. The event series is a program organized by the Downtown El Cajon Business Partners organization.
