(Photos by Wes Allison) When you talk about driving events, like the Quarantine Cruise, or even local Cruise-Ins, it is really hard to beat the action in SoCal. I lived there for more than a decade and can tell you that the number of automotive things going on is second to none. Of course a huge part of that is the weather, but it’s also because the culture there is so car-centric. It’s the home of hot rodding, there are tons of hot rod parts companies, builders, and enthusiasts there and it just shows. Plus, with no rust there are a lot of old rides still around even if they haven’t been restored. So it is no surprise that the Quarantine Cruise is such a big hit and brings out such badass rides.
It very much reminds me of the Tour d’ Orange that happens on New Year’s morning each year in SoCal where cars, trucks, muscle cars, street machines, exotics, and all kinds of other stuff show up to drive a two hour route around Orange County. You can take as little time as you like or all the time in the world, it doesn’t matter, it’s just a fun route with cool scenery and a good time. That’s what the Quarantine Cruise is all about as well. Getting out there in your ride and having fun. We approve and are super thankful for the great photos from Wes Allison.
