Car show at Modesto High School kicks off summer in springtime

It was only April 23 – not quite Graffiti Summer – but it’s always a good time for a car show in Modesto. Classic car enthusiasts turned out for the second annual Autorama Car Show at Modesto High School, hosted by the famed local club the Faros. Proceeds from the event went to the school’s Sober Grad Night activities.


For those who don’t know, a ‘Graffiti’ primer

Ah, Graffiti Summer. You can still feel the nostalgia. We’ve celebrated with cars, stars and guitars. In case you weren’t around in ’62 or aren’t quite familiar with the movie and crusing in Modesto, we’ve compiled your own “Graffiti” handbook – facts, trivia and words of wisom that will take you straight back in time to Mel’s Diner (make that Burge’s in Modesto), cool cars, blondes in Thunderbirds, sock hops and poodle skirts.


Classic car show continues Sunday in Modesto

Car fans and “American Graffiti” aficionados young and old turned out Saturday for the annual Kiwanis American Graffiti Car Show and Festival at Modesto Municipal Golf Course. More than 1,200 vintage cars are on site at the event, which continues Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with bands, DJs, vendors, food and more.
