Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion What: 3rd annual vintage car program including muscle automobiles, racers and more from 1975 and earlier. When: Sunday, Sept. 20, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Where: Euclid Opportunity in between East B Street and East I Street, Ontario Details: Call 800-867-8366 or see phone https://route66cruisinreunion.com/ Laurie Bakewell and Nancy Derrick had prime seats Saturday, Sept. 19, for Ontario’s Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion automobile show– in the back of Bakewell’s hubby’s 1966 Pontiac GTO convertible. The white GTO, like the two females in its red backseat, is a car-show veteran. It’s now been to all three Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunions, and prior to that, all 22 editions of San Bernardino’s Stater Bros. Route 66 Rendezvous. The Ontario show took over from San Bernardino’s version in spirit if not in name– due to copyright problems– after San Bernardino declared bankruptcy in 2012 and cancelled its popular automobile program. The step caused some rancor amongst the 2 cities and tradition-minded individuals– Route 66 didn’t go through Ontario, for a single thing– yet Ontario’s variation appears to be speeding up in popularity since its 2013 creation. Michael Krouse, CEO of the Greater Ontario Convention and Visitors Bureau, said opening night Friday felt busier than last year. By early Saturday afternoon, show entries topped 1,000, CVB Communications Director Sue Oxarart stated. Both anticipated participation to reach 200,000 by the show’s end Sunday afternoon. The final Stater Bros. Route 66 Rendezvous in 2012 brought in about 1,500 cars and 400,000 spectators. Entrants arrived hours earlier than Saturday’s 9 a.m. begin to snag an excellent parking spot along Euclid Opportunity, which was closed in between B and I streets to enable cruising. Within hours, rides of all kinds lined the avenue: Hemis and Minis, ‘Stangs and ‘Vettes, fire engine and 4x4s. Some were bone stock, others greatly customized, none newer than 1975. Hoods stood open to show chromed engines, and owners dabbed perfect paint with feather dusters. Not every vehicle sparkled. Some showed off the so-called “patina,” a weather-beaten finish that appears like it never started. It’s de rigueur for the “rat rod,” a pieced-together Frankenstein of a device developed lower than a lowrider. One sat not an inch above the asphalt. Muscle vehicles and racers rumbled past the lemonade stands and hotdog suppliers in the median. The burbling idle and throttled roar of engines reverberated inside pristine engine bays and out of mufflers, a misnomer if there ever was one. On occasion an engine stalled, starved for gas but not for attention. Hearing a vintage V-8 come to life is a big reason people come to programs like this. Back at the white ’66 GTO, with its top down and their legs stretched out onto front seats pushed flat, Bakewell and Derrick waited for Bakewell’s partner Gaylen to return so they could sign up with the other cruisers. “We have actually made many new good friends,” stated Bakewell, who resides in Jurupa Valley. “It doesn’t matter what type of car you have … they’re all brothers and siblings. They extend their hospitality and tools for anybody.” Bakewell and Derrick owe their relationship to camaraderie like that. They satisfied in May 2011 at Riverside’s Program and Go Automobile Program. Quickly Gaylen Bakewell returned. He opened his GTO’s hood to show off the 389 cubic inch V-8 to a buddy, then dropped it shut. Keep it civil and stay on topic. No profanity, indecency, racial slurs or personal attacks.
