The Donut Derelicts are a Southern California institution – an early morning gathering at Adams Avenue Donuts that started in the early ’80s and continues on today. Every Saturday morning, rain or shine, hot rods, classics, vintage steel and muscle cars roll into the parking lot in Huntington Beach to talk cars, bench race and, of course, enjoy a donut.
You don’t see many of these at shows – a great looking Studebaker truck.
Wow… big power for a little car! This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Hemi, and this would be the perfect car to celebrate in!
We could really Ramble On in this 1960 Rambler wagon…
… one of my favorite details was the 1960 Vote Kennedy bumper sticker.
The classic Morgan is always a wonderful find at a show, but…
… after reading this bumper sticker, maybe we’ll change our minds and not drive behind this guy on our way to the show!
The classic sleek black ’50 Merc a definite show stopper – what a presence in the parking lot!
This Packard Clipper is a a rolling work of art, and quite a land yacht, too.
Check out the ship’s wheel – further proof that this really is a land yacht – and a gorgeous one at that.
If you are up at 6am on a Saturday (before you go to your first car show of the day, right?) stop by the corner of Adams and Magnolia for a donut and some vintage steel. There’s a reason Donut Derelicts is such a longstanding tradition!
