The Classic at Pismo Beach
Welcoming Classic Cars, Worthwhile Causes and a Whole Lot of Fun to the Central Coast
It’s that time of year again to gear up for the Mothers Polish Classic at Pismo Beach. This year marks the 29th Annual Classic that has grown into one of the largest spectator car events in the U.S. Over 175,000 people make the trip to Pismo Beach each year to take in the gorgeous Central Coast scenery while delighting in three days of the hottest classic show cars brought in by the likes of Mothers Polish, GM Performance, Ford Motor Company, 7-Eleven, Budweiser and more!
The event is managed by the family operated business, Just Cruzin’ Productions and presented by GEICO. Free to the public, observers delight in almost 1,000 show cars while cruising downtown Pismo Beach and enjoying over 130 vendors.
The Classic at Pismo Beach is proud of its strong connection with its participants and spectators that help raise money for genuine causes each year. This year the Folds of Honor Foundation will benefit from the weekend of events. This charity honors the sacrifice of military families by providing scholarships and other assistance to spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled during service to our country. Folds of Honor Foundation truly embraces these families’ ability to heal while gaining hope and opportunity to realize their dreams.
