The Greenspan’s Classic was back for its second year at South Gate Park in the city of South Gate, California, this past March. The 2010 show was such a success for both Greenspan’s and the city of South Gate that they decided to host another show this past year and this one certainly didn’t disappoint. As the primary sponsor of the event, Greenspan’s was allotted a generous amount of space for the show just like the 2010 date, so the show became an invitational event for pre-1970 vehicles. Some of the invited guests included Bomb Connection car club, Classic Lowriders car club, Pharaohs South Bay, Tovars, Classic Oldies car club, and Connected car club Ventura County, as well as a number of individual car owners.
Luckily, Mother Nature was kind on the day of the show, providing a nice winter mix of clouds and sun which served as the perfect backdrop for all of the automotive eye candy at the park. From Bombs to Impalas and everything in between, there was something for every type of car lover. Classic Lowriders brought out a number of pristine club cars that attracted attention throughout the show, while the Tovars had their Chevy Bombs lying on the ground, with Classic Oldies car club following suit.
Entertainment was provided by Mike Lopez aka “The Cholo DJ” who was spinning some rare and classic oldies throughout the day. The show had vendors like Tribal Gear and Kokopelli Smoke Shop, offering everything from t-shirts to the latest in smoking accessories. Greenspan’s also had a few food vendors in the show area, in case people were looking for a bite to eat or a cold drink.
For the second year in a row, Greenspan’s and the city of South Gate produced a great show with incredible cars, people, and atmosphere. Next year’s event should be as equally enjoyable and hopefully the car count will increase yet again. Who knows, maybe the city of South Gate will once again allow the legendary Azalea Car Show to take place. One can only hope.
