Riding down memory lane

Local residents can cruise back to yesteryear Saturday as Foothill

Boulevard transforms itself into a virtual showroom for dozens of

classic cars.


The Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce will host its Foothill

Boulevard Car Show at 5 p.m. on the 2600 and 2700 blocks of the main

thoroughfare. The show will feature about 75 to 80 cars from bygone



“The community likes the events that go on,” said Crescenta Valley

Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jean Maluccio, who said about

300 to 400 residents are expected for the event. “It’s something they

can walk to and bring the family. It doesn’t cost anything.”

Though perusing the automotive showcase is free, residents who

attend the event can put in votes for their favorites for $2.

Last year’s winners include a 1930 Model A Tudor, a 1939 Chevrolet

Coup, a 1956 Ford F-150 and a Chrysler Roadster.


Residents hoping to enter their classic wheels in the show for $20

can pick up entry forms at the chamber office, 3131 Foothill Blvd.,
