Poway Cruisers Hamburger Factory Cruise In 9/26/2018

The 6th and last Hamburger Factory Cruise In of the 2018 season is history.  We had a perfect early autumn evening for our last cruise in of the year: cool, slight breeze, beautiful sun shine, beautiful cars and trucks, and great people.

Setup got started by 4:30 PM, and by 4:55 everything was in place and ready for the show. We already had 6-8 cars lined up, and by 5:30 the lot was pretty full. We had at least 30 cars and pickups displayed, with at least 55-60 people in attendance. The 50/50 sales were brisk, building a nice pot early. Daniel, one of the staff from the hamburger Factory came out and walked the show to pick a Hamburger Factory favorite.

As fall is upon us already, and its getting dark earlier, we moved the finale up to 6:45 PM. We had some surprise prizes to give away, all donated by Poway Cruiser members. Rick Carlson donated several nice NASCAR memorabilia items, we had 6 free admission passes to the San Diego Automotive Museum to give away, along with several tool kits, a Bill Elliot Team Hauler Model, and the usual breakfast for 2 at the Hamburger Factory.

After the surprise prizes were given out, Hamburger Factory’s Favorite of the Show Award was presented to Vince Yamasaki for his ’48 Mercury Convertible. Then the ticket for the 50/50 OD was drawn and belonged to Bill Bryan. Bill also won Breakfast for 2 at the Hamburger Factory. Big Night for Bill!

The show came to a close a few minutes after 7:00 PM, the last time this year. We’ll be back in April 2019 after we move the clocks ahead.
