Welcome to Californian Cruisin’

We are a club of about 30 enthusiastic members who are all passionate about American Classic Cars, Hot Rods and Pickups.

Among our members’ rides we have all the major American car manufacturers represented – see some of the cars on the Club Cars gallery.

Benefits of membership

One of the requirements to have a car in the 60 day Registration Scheme is that you must be a registered member of a club that is participating in the scheme. Californian Cruisin Inc. is a participant in the scheme.

— Connecting with like-minded enthusiasts

Monthly club runs

We are a very active club with monthly club runs on the second Sunday of every month (Sunday Cruisin’) in the area of Central Coast, Newcastle and Hunter. The run always includes lunch in some format, sometimes in a café and sometimes picnic-style catered by us.

See the Sunday Cruisin’ page for some photos of previous runs. See the Events calendar for upcoming runs.

We actively post information on our Events page about other car-related shows and events to keep members informed. These sometimes form the basis of the main Sunday Run or smaller group runs. See us on Facebook as well.

Club admin meetings

As a rule, we don’t have specific club meetings but if there are issues that require the club members to know about or decide an outcome then we will conduct a meeting as part of that month’s club outing.

— Chromefest

Every year we sponsor and coordinate for running of “Chromefest”, held at The Entrance. This event is the major event run by the club and in conjunction with Central Coast Council. It draws in excess of 450 vehicles over a 3 day weekend, with a crowd of over 25,000 per day.

See photos of previous Chromefest Events and on Facebook

— Extras

The club has its own dance floor and that is used at events like Chromefest and the Medowie Tavern Show & Shine. Many of our members enjoy Rock & Roll dancing. Don’t forget “You’re never to old to Rock & Roll”.
