Drifters Car Club of Southern California to visit Idyllwild


Last updated 6/25/2018 at 8:18am

The resort town of Idyllwild in the San Jacinto mountains will hear the sounds of souped-up hot rods, classic and custom cars from the Drifters Car Club of Southern California Saturday, June 23, as they roll through town.

The Drifters plan to meet 8:30 a.m. at the Franklin’s Cove in Murrieta before beginning their cruise up state Route 74 and onto state Route 243 to Idyllwild by 9 a.m.

After cruising the town, the club members will stop to enjoy lunch and shopping at the many shops and restaurants. Visitors will have a chance to talk to the owners about their automotive creations and recreations.

The Drifters are a popular Southwest County classic car club that make many of their cruises as a way to raise money for nonprofit organizations in the local communities. The Drifters Car Club was started by Pat Vesey, who had a love for cars and the automotive lifestyle, in 1996.

The first Drifters Car Show took place in 1997 in Temecula and now sponsors many of the better car shows in many Riverside County communities, with its largest the annual Murrieta Rod Run with all proceeds going to the Oak Grove Center for Education and the Arts that serves at-risk youths.
