General Info

The Classic at Pismo Beach Car Show is celebrating over 30 years. The Classic brings many people and cars from all other the state and some as far away as Alaska and Australia. Big 18-wheelers show up from companies like Mother’s Polish, GM Performance, Ford Motor Company, Budweiser and many more. The show began in the early 80’s and continues to attract the hottest classic cars each year to this tiny but serene central coast town of Pismo Beach. Cars line the streets of this tiny beach town where spectators can enjoy the cars, the sponsors, and the vendors.

This event has a strong connection with its participants and fans and each year it raises money for wonderful causes like the Fold of Honor Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, and the Pismo Beach K-9 Unit. Each year, Just Cruzin Foundation holds a live charity auction where the sounds of an auctioneer can be heard from afar as donated items like cars, engines, auto accessories, art, and much more are auctioned to raise money for these great causes.

The show happens the third weekend in June and is open to all makes and models of cars and is free to the public. Judging for this event is peer judging and is based on attention to detail, interior, engine compartment, undercarriage and more. We award a special “Gold Class” limited to the top ten best of the best. It is hand picked and held to a higher standard.

There is much more fun to be had at the surrounding attractions like shopping in downtown Pismo Beach, wineries located just miles up the coast, and more. Come join us for a wonderful event. It’s one you won’t want to miss!
