(Photos by Dannie Pinard) Euclid Avenue is one of the most historic streets in Southern California and is right on Route 66. It’s a street that runs through the heart of Ontario and Upland, and features a big wide tree-lined park-like center divider that defines the street and makes it unlike any other. With old buildings, historic homes, killer views, and more, Euclid Avenue is iconic in SoCal which is why Ontario’s Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion couldn’t have a better place to call home. What makes this even special, compared to the jillions of other cruise nights, car shows, and events in SoCal is that cruising is part of the actual event. You get to cruise a route that is blocked off just for hot rods and customs.
I used to live just a couple blocks off of Euclid, and can tell you that this area of Southern California is a hot bed for custom cars, trucks, hot rods, race cars, and more. This event highlighted them all, and long time BANGshifter Dannie Pinard was on hand enjoying it all. While I was super jealous, I was at least glad he offered to share his photos with all of us here. So big thanks to Dannie, as we’ve got a couple galleries worth of photos for you, starting in the gallery below.
