This time next weekend I will likely be immersed in reviewing my take from the 7th Annual Rendezvous Back to Route 66 car show.
Used to be the biggest event in San Bernardino every year. Four days of cars, cruising, contests, even a carnival for the kids. Candy Clark, from the cast of the 70s movie, American Grafitti, would even show up, sign autographs and sell memorabilia.
Thanks to the efforts of San Bernardino Area Chamber of Commerce CEO Judi Penman and her band of volunteers, the event has been kept on life support, first for a few years in the parking lot of San Manuel Stadium, where they were forced to charge admission, to its current and proper place on the streets of downtown San Bernardino.
