Sunday, July 13 marked another “Mad Lil’s” car show in Old Town Temecula. The show took place at 7 a.m. and lasted through the end of the evening, and there were dozens of different cars to be seen from classics and hot rods to customs.
This car show was one of few that have taken place over the last several months on a bi-monthly basis. Many of Old Town’s vendors have been gathering together in association with Slow Lane car club to make them happen.
The vendors devised the idea for the Sunday car shows because they wanted to provide a fun event for families while also drawing business into Old Town; many of them said they wanted to do something slightly different than the Rod Run, which became a city-run event for the first time in March of this year.
It was following this transition that the idea for the bi-monthly car show was birthed and since that time dozens of different cars have rolled into Old Town for the viewing pleasure of the public. The June 13 event saw a number of unique and classic cars such as Chevy Bel Airs, Corvette Stingrays, Dodge Royal Lancers and more.
Trophies were awarded that day to cars in various categories. There were also give aways, raffles, music and other forms of entertainment. The bulk of vehicles to be seen were located between Texas Lil’s Mesquite Grill and Mad Madelines, but there were cars located all along Old Town’s front street.
