We actually feel bad for the 90 million of you that are currently in freezing conditions, as we’re throwing a hoodie on and going to the first Donut Derelicts cruise in of 2018 still wearing flip flops. I know, we suck. But the good thing for those of you who can’t get your hot rods out and cruising is that we took a bunch of photos from this first Donuts of 2018 to share with you and they are all below. If you don’t know what Donut Derelicts is, then you need to make sure you add it to your list of must attend SoCal car culture things. Donut Derelicts is a low key neighborhood style cruise in event that fills up at the crack of dawn and then usually has cars parking across the street as well.
Think Cars and Coffee but this one started decades before some douchebag thought you had to put coffee in the title, and without the Lambo and McLaren Wang measuring contest.
Here is the story of how Donut Derelicts got started, directly from their website.
The word was out! Every street rod, hot rod, classic and specialty creation from the South Bay to Laguna and parts unknown had heard about the self proclaimed “Donut Derelicts”. People come each Saturday to marvel at the beautiful creations of those who have spent thousands of hours, gallons of wax, and tons of money for a hobby that keeps enthusiasts out of trouble, cash and honey-dos.
