Cajon Classic Cruise- Girls Nite Out was just that for Brenda Sanchez, Paula Dwyer, and Zoey Lopez, 6, when they attended the second event of Downtown El Cajon Business Partnership’s car show series on April 26. Although Zoey was undetermined what a girl’s night out meant her grandmother and aunt knew—“We have a party!” 

Cajon Classic Cruise- Girls Nite Out was just that for Brenda Sanchez, Paula Dwyer, and Zoey Lopez, 6, when they attended the second event of Downtown El Cajon Business Partnership’s car show series on April 26. Although Zoey was undetermined what a girl’s night out meant her grandmother and aunt knew—“We have a party!” 

“We have come on Halloween to the Trunk or Treat event but not Girls Nite out” said Sanchez.  Her niece, Zoey, liked the 1956 pink Ford truck owned by Janet Tresser that had pink dice hanging off the rear-view mirror.

Sanchez said a polka dot Harley-Davidson, parked in Bike Row, with its owner decked out in polka dot as well, as a personal favorite.

Alexis Frost, events coordinator, for Downtown El Cajon Business Partners, said. “We have 200 cars that come from up to 100 miles away. They are female drivers that bring their own cars. All of the cars here tonight are owned by females.”

One such owner, Dottie Rhodes, who had her 2005 customized PT Cruiser on display on Prescott Promenade said, “This is my third year here. Last year we won an award, Sponsor’s Choice, and got compliments of ‘Wow!’” Ten awards were given out at this event.

Rhodes has spent $10,000 to customize her PT Cruiser and displays her car in up to 40-50 shows a year.

Although an ice cream truck drove by playing “Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer” that Zoey Lopez enjoyed, typically, the event had rock ‘n roll piping into the air up and down Main Street.

Food vendors like Nana’s Heavenly Hot Dogs and restaurants like the Downtown Café and Nicolosi’s Italian Restaurant were buzzing with activity on this Wednesday night. The shows run every Wednesday, from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. until the October 25 Trunk or Treat grand finale.

Some of the 2017 themes are “Salute to Jimmie Johnson,” “Cajon Speedway Family Night,” and “Tribute to Police & Fire.” The Cajon Classic Cruise is considered one of the premier classic car shows in Southern California.

Kid activities, vendors, and car owners get to quiz about their cars, and a festive atmosphere all for free. To find out more visit: www.cajonclassiccruise.org.
