Please join the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitor & Convention Bureau in offering  the warmest of welcomes for this year’s 33rd West Coast Kustoms Annual Cruisin’ Nationals!  On behalf of our staff, local businesses, residents and civic leaders, we thank them for hosting this year’s event in our city at the Santa Maria Fairpark on May 23, 24 and 25!  We’re hoping for another great turnout of guests and visitors to one of the most anticipated events of the year!

We recognize and honor the inductees for this year’s Hall of Fame event including Rich Pichette – the founder of the West Coast Kustoms Car Club and the Cruisin’ Nationals; and Kustom car designers John D’Agostino (who shows cars and manages kustomizing projects all over the world) and Rick Dore (who has a new TV show called Lords of the Car Hoards on the Discovery Channel).  What an amazing time we’ll have paying tribute to these very special VIPs.  Hearty congratulations to the fabulous Penny Pichette, aka The Enforcer, for her induction into the Grand National Roadster Show Hall of Fame in January! Have you seen the video clip on YouTube?!

Once again, Penny Pichette and her team have outdone themselves with fun and exciting offerings for the weekend!  Festivities over the weekend include the Santa Maria City Cruise along Broadway from Main to Stowell on Friday night, The Legends of Kustomizing Model Car Show, vendors of all kinds, live music, a Kustom and Vintage Bicycle Show, Pin-Striping Panel Jam, Sunday Automotive Swap Meet and George Barris’s Munster Coach – come out and meet Eddie Munster! Discount tickets are available at O’Reilly Auto Parts. For more information, visit www.WestCoastKustoms.com.

We expect a great turn out for the event, and look forward to seeing everyone at the Fairpark for this amazing event that draws thousands of people – from all over the country and beyond!
