Burger Run 2012: Part One

Words by Tim Wong

“It was back in 1988, I was nearly finished with my first car, a 1965 Mustang, we, my friends and I, decided that the following Saturday we’d go to Pepper Tree Frosty for a burger, I had been going to Pepper Tree since 1956, it’s still owned by the same family, the Villa Seniors, we had 4 cars that first year. I never gave it another thought until someone said,” hey, lets do it again next year”. We made up some flyers saying, free car show for pre-72 cars, free t-shirt and dash plaque to the first 100 cars, we got 90! We did the same for the next year. We then realized that we needed to cover the cost of the t-shirts and dash plaques, so for the 4th year we began to charge $10 per car, still giving a t-shirt and dash plaque to each entrant. It still the same today, we’re coming up on the 21st annual Burger Run. I still enjoy the event, it’s considerably bigger now than it was and requires more work, to help with this I am fortunate to have volunteers from The Country Gents Car Club and other friends.” -Joe Free

Burger Run is an long time event that I really had not been aware of. I really wished I knew about it years ago because this is event is really something that is not to be missed. The high attendance and high quality is quite a sight to see. As expected. this community is mostly the older generation, but I could see it was a pretty nice and social group of people. I like that fact that it is held at an old food joint with a long history because it gives off a certain atmosphere to the venue and the show.

There were hundreds of cars and there’s no way I can post them all here so the excess will be uploaded to our Facebook page later.

A couple of cars there were SEMA quality like this Camaro. A perfect condition classic muscle with a modern muscle heart transplant.

This show easily had the greatest trophies I have ever seen. Each trophy was unique and reflected what the award was for. Some of them were really clever too.
