California Part 3 – Santa Barbara Wheels and Waves show

After LA, we jumped in the Camaro SS and headed north on Route One to our next destination Santa Barbara. Along the way, we had a fun brunch in Malibu where we bumped into Chuck Zito, aka. Frankie Diamonds from FX’s Sons of Anarchy TV series.

After filling our stomach’s with some amazing grub we attended Santa Barbara’s Wheels and Waves classic car show.  Well, it certainly lived up to its reputation as one of the better classic auto shows in the southern California area.  With the town’s main street packed with lines of all types of classic cars and trucks the show had everything to offer for the enthusiast.  The level of show cars was top-notch and the cars look so darn good in the California sun. Here’s a glimpse into the unreal rides we experienced and to what California dreaming is all about….
