JUST A PERFECT DAY TO MEET UP WITH FELLOW C10 ENTHUSIASTS TO GO CRUISIN'...
Earlier this month, we got invited by C10 Club Los Angeles and United Classic Events to attend a C10 cruise from Los Angeles to San Diego to meet up with other C10 enthusiasts to hang out and get some tacos and the famous Taco El Gordo in Chula Vista. The two organizers set up multiple meeting spots starting in LA and throughout Orange Country to allow other C10 owners to rendezvous with the group.
The two organizers set up multiple meeting spots starting in LA and throughout Orange Country to allow other C10 owners to rendezvous with the group. Heading out early in the morning from Long Beach, we decided to link up with the C10 guys at a meeting spot in Anaheim. At this particular location, both C10 Club Los Angeles and C10 Club Inland Empire congregated before setting off towards San Diego. While waiting for more enthusiasts to arrive, I walked around the parking lot to say hello to everyone and get some shots of the awesome trucks. It was so refreshing to see so many passionate individuals come out to participate in such a great event.
From there, we all headed to our next stop in Capistrano Beach, Dana Point. Along the way, I was able to drive alongside the caravan of C10s to get a few sweet rolling shots on the highway. I have to give it up to my girlfriend for being a huge help being behind the wheel as I stuck my camera out the passenger side window – holding on for dear life while snapping away. Once we arrived at the rendezvous point, more local C10 owners slowly started to make an appearance. After about 15 minutes or so, we continued our journey to San Diego.
Seeing a bunch of C10s cruising down the 5 freeway was definitely an incredible sight to see, especially if you’re an automotive enthusiast. After about an hour or so of driving, the caravan exited near Downtown San Diego in the neighborhood of Barrio Logan and we arrived at Chicano Park – the park is home to the largest concentration of Chicano murals in the world with more than 80 paintings on seven acres dotted with sculpture, gardens, picnic tables and playgrounds. It was the perfect place to stop and take photos with the beautiful murals as a backdrop.
Sadly, Chicano Park was my last stop for the day due to me having a bad ankle sprain during the time. Despite not getting a chance to grab lunch at Tacos El Gordo with the guys, I still had a blast hanging out with the amazing C10 community. Big thanks again to C10 Club Los Angeles and United Classic Events for inviting United Pacific to a awesome day of cruising Southern California. We can’t wait until the next one!
