Crusin' for a Cure returned to the Costa Mesa Fairgrounds for its 15th year and it was bigger than ever. With over 3,000 cars and thousands more spectators, every available piece of real estate was taken up with a custom vehicle. Many local clubs had turned out and made their presence known with large banners, easy ups and barbeques. Show participants had lined up as early as 4am to stake out the coveted spots along the cruise route or to take up a spot large enough for their group or club. Many vendors made it out as well and they were strategically placed along the main drag leading in from the entrance. The Cruise is supposed to draw awareness to prostate cancer and there were even doctors on hand to do screenings right then and there, albeit in a private setting inside one of the buildings and away from the show itself. With that somber overtone, this is still an awesome show that brings out the best trucks that the local area has to offer. It being a one-day show guarantees a huge turnout and friendly competition for trophies given out at the end of the day. This is a great show, it raises money for charity and should be on everyone's list. For more information, go to or go to
