Start Your Engines for the Downtown Burbank Car Classic

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 19, 2012) - The Downtown Burbank Car Classic is an exciting showcase for restored and pre-1974 sports cars, exotics and hot rods, and will cruise into Downtown Burbank with engines roaring and horns ablaze on Saturday, July 28 from 3:00 to 9:00 pm.

In tune with Downtown Burbank's connection with the entertainment industry, vehicles with a Hollywood twist will be in the spotlight, such as those appearing in film or television, or having a distinguished history of celebrity ownership. Cars will stretch along San Fernando Boulevard from Magnolia Boulevard to Angeleno Avenue as well as adjacent streets in Downtown Burbank's shopping, dining, and entertainment district. Included will be lots of family entertainment, music and vendor-booths.

For retro fans, the fun starts the night before with a special preview party, Friday, July 27, from 7pm to 9pm. Participants will join in a nostalgic trip down memory lane at the original Bob's Big Boy, 4211 West Riverside Drive in Burbank, where the 1950s are still being celebrated. It's a chance to bask in the golden rays of a California sunset while enjoying tasty burgers and fries served by authentic car hops. It's also a great opportunity to meet and greet with fellow automotive enthusiasts and to admire select vehicles before the following day's show.

The Downtown Burbank Car Classic is presented by Downtown Burbank Partnership, a non-profit organization.
