Wavecrest Woodie Show 2018 Sunday
Although the Wavecrest Woodie Show 2018 ended on Saturday, the big fun for woodie owners is just beginning here in Encinitas this morning. At 8 AM the cruise to Oceanside begins at the Encinitas City Hall. You have to witness this to get the excitement of seeing fifty old wood-bodied cars cruising along historic Hwy 101, skirting Pacific beaches all along the way. The 25-mile cruise is a great opportunity to see these cars in action. Here is how it looked under the pier at Oceanside this morning:
The Wavecrest Woodie Show 2018 opened Saturday morning to clear skies and brilliant California sun. It is the San Diego Woodie Club’s big event here on Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, California. What a day for a car show. And, man, is this a special car show. It’s always great to watch spectators who have never been to the Wavecrest Woodie Show before. They can’t help smiling from ear to ear as they “ooooh” and “awww” over every car they see. To see this many woodies all in one place is amazing.
Here is a slideshow of some of the early arrivals on Moonlight Beach Saturday morning.
The 39th Annual Wavecrest Woodie Show 2018 is one of the world’s largest All-Woodie Homecomings. It is just simply jaw dropping to see so many wood-bodied vehicles on display. Look around and you realize woodie passenger wagons were produced from the 1910’s through the early 1950’s. They are a part of Califonia’s culture because they were the preferred transportation for surfers over the years. Not only were they relatively inexpensive in the 1950’s and 1960’s, but they could easily carry a longboard on the roof. So the San Diego Woodie Club observes the lifestyle and the woodie car culture every year at the Wavecrest show.
It is one really laid back party on Saturday from 8 am to 5 pm. They announced that 195 woodies were registered and on display here on Moonlight Beach.
Here are some of the really rare ones we saw today:
Once again this year, Cars On Line.com is on hand to bring you photos and videos of the Wavecrest Woodie Show 2018. Woodies are here from all over the U.S.
This is one car show that should be on every collector’s bucket list. It takes a full day for us to cover the entire show. We met some real characters, as you can imagine, and swapped stories with some of the most knowledgable car people on the planet.
Here is a video sample of what it was like Saturday morning at the Wavecrest Woodie Show 2018:
