Pinole will rev up its engines this weekend for the “Pinole Classic Car Show,” when the reverberating sounds of V8s, vibrant paint jobs, hip hub caps, fab fenders and fantastic fins come to town Sunday, June 23 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fernandez Park. The event is sponsored by Mike’s Appliances.

For gearheads who want to get in on the fun times early, a “Pancake Breakfast” will take place from 7 to 9:45 a.m. that day at the Pinole Senior Center for $12 per person. Community members can pay at the door and stroll over to the park after eating. Other revelry at the family-friendly event will include live music, dancing, local vendors, raffles and more.

While the show will be limited to the first pre-registered 325 classic American cars (pre-1981) and other pre-registered classics as space is available, late entries to the show will be admitted between 9-10 a.m. The pre-registration fee is $30 ($35 event day) and it can be done here.

Any classic cars/owners needing to leave the event before 3 p.m. are asked to park on the baseball field. Alcohol consumption and loud music or noises of any kind are prohibited. Questions? Call 510-772-0016 or email [email protected].

Fernandez Park is located at 595 Tennent Ave. in Pinole.
