The 13th annual classic car show will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will feature about 350 vehicles all made before 1973.
"That's a typical period to have represented in a classic car show," McFall said. "This is a classic car community, and there are lots of examples of classic cars."
McFall, who helped create Cruise Night in 1994, has entered his 1948 Willys Jeepster in the car show.
"This one I bought about three years ago," McFall said. "The last two years I entered my 1957 Chevy Bel Air, but this year I've entered the Jeepster."
The show covers a wide array of car types from Ferraris, Cadillacs and Model As to a Mustang GT350, a Shelby Cobra, a Plymouth Barracuda and a Studebaker Avanti, said Don Robie from the Public Works Mechanical Maintenance and Warehouse department.
"If they were in the show last year, they were sent an entry card for this year," Robie said.
Custom car designer George Barris will feature his Munster Koach, which he built in the 1960s, Robie said.
He's created a number of custom cars for movies and television shows, including the Batmobile and the Dukes of Hazzard's Dodge Charger ? The General Lee.
The mayor, police chief, fire chief, members of the Cruise Night committee and members of Sha Na Na will judge the car show and hand out commemorative trophies.
"The judges will be looking for those car enthusiasts who've gone above in restoring their cars," city spokesman Ritch Wells said. "Whatever they think makes that car unique and different."
Car owners can enter their car or truck in the show by bringing the $30 entry fee and their vehicle to the holding area at Doran and Orange streets.
"The cars need to be fully restored, nearly restored or clean originals," McFall said. "There are very specific selection criteria to ensure high-quality examples of each car category to ensure the quality of the car show."
The Parks, Recreation and Community Service Department will have a climbing wall, a play truck and nature trailer set up with games and other children's activities.
"It's really a family event," Wells said. "There will be different, various games that a lot of children enjoy in our summer camps."gnp.cruise.1.15-BPhotoInfoQD1SV82J20060715ijr77yknCredit: DAN WATSON News-Press and Leader Caption: (LA)Visitors to last year's Cruise Night walk down Brand Boulevard and check out the classic cars on display.
