Seal Beach is gearing up for the inaugural Vintage Car Cruise. The event is safe, socially distanced and free to Seal Beach residents and their guests. The cruise will take place from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Saturday, April 24, the original date for the Seal Beach Classic Car Show. Due to Covid-19, the Car Show has been postponed until October.

Seal Beach residents and friends will be able to watch, socially distanced, from their yards, balconies, green belts and businesses along the 3-and-1/2 mile route.
The event will be televised on local SBTV-3 and livestreamed as well, for those without a front row view. Trophies will be awarded in 8 classes, as follows: 1. Best Truck, 2. Best Convertible, 3. Best Coupe/Sedan, 4. Most Unique, 5. Best for Mom, 6. Best for Dad, 7. Best Paint Color and 8. Seal Beach Chamber of Commerce Choice. The first seven classes will be judged by votes cast online by spectators.
“We are so excited to bring this unique, first-time event to Seal Beach this year,” said Tim Way, chair of the Seal Beach Vintage Car Cruise. “For those who love to collect Car Show t-shirts, we will have special edition, 2021 Vintage Car Cruise t-shirts and posters for sale at select Main Street businesses on and before the day of the event,” he concluded.
