Kalacas Summer Meltdown 2018

First Time’s a Charm

Kalacas Car and Truck Club hosted its inaugural Summer Meltdown Show in Corona, California, this year. The name was fitting for the event, as the temperature was well into the ’90s all day. Clubs and custom vehicles from all over Southern California rolled in and set up canopies to escape the heat. People didn’t have to go far to grab a cold beverage and food, though, thanks to host venue Round Table Pizza, which was only steps away. DJ Big Spin kept everyone entertained by spinning tunes and doing random giveaways throughout the day.

The day went off without a hitch, and everyone had a great time—Kalacas members mingling with the crowd made sure of that. There were a few notable clubs on hand, including Seductive, Concrete Deep, Local Finesse, Sunset, No Regrets, Severed Ties, and Forbidden Fantasy, all of which have been attending SoCal shows together for a very long time. The raffle was full of rad giveaways, and everyone loved the custom one-off trophies built by Addictive Concepts.
Kalacas would like to thank all its friends and sponsors for supporting Summer Meltdown, and they hope to see everyone next year.
Sponsors: AK Airbrushing, Herreras Tires, Grindertv, Kustom Life, Brothers Towing of Norco, Artistic Precision, and Addictive Concepts.
