Pre-1973 cars will line up with their owners on Brand between Broadway and Milford Street while judges, including Edd "Kookie" Byrnes from the 1960s television detective series "77 Sunset Strip," decide which vehicles out of the 400 present stand out from the rest in quality and style.
"We have such a range of cars that show up," Wells said. "Last year, we got everything from old pickup trucks to the "Munster Koach" from the 1960s television series, "The Munsters."
Reflecting the era of the displayed cars, oldies bands will perform on the main stage located at the corner of Brand Boulevard and Milford Street. The entertainment lineup, emceed by former KRTH-FM (101) host "Mr. Rock 'n' Roll" Brian Beirne, will kick off with Soul artist Al Wilson, followed by surf-rock band The Chatays, "Poetry in Motion" singer Johnny Tillotson and close with doo-wop group The Marcels.
For those who can't remember when The Marcels' hit "Blue Moon" first hit radio waves, there will be several booths and displays and games for the kids while a dance and hula-hoop contest will take place at the Awards Stage at Brand and Wilson Avenue.
"This is one of the few car shows where you can view classic cars and do things with your family at the same time," said Cruise Night committee chairman Ross Phares. "It's a great and free family event where there's something for everyone."
