The city of El Segundo is really a terrific place for a car show. In large part I say that because Main Street downtown looks like a 60s era movie set. While the town has changed a lot in the last five decades, this comfortable, quaint vintage town of 16,000+ looks much the same as it did years ago. The high rise buildings are on the east side along Sepulveda, the west side is the Hyperian water treatment plant and the Pacific Ocean, to the north is L.A. Airport, and the Chevron refinery occupies the south side.
The 18th annual Main Street Car Show was presented by the El Segundo Police Officers Association and was open to all makes and models of cars and trucks. The weather was clear and warmed up by about 10:00 am, then the tree lined streets provided good shade for some vehicles.
Local spectators came out with their kids and pets to enjoy the sights and sounds of this much anticipated event. Main street shops were open and the car show included vendors showing off their wares. Besides the cool collection of cars, raffles, a 50/50 drawing, live music by the Russell & Chuck project, great food was available along Main St. If you’re in the area, the show and this unique city are worth a visit.
