We’re not sure how you can be that laid back and manage to pull off such a well-organized show for 16 straight years. Yet, that’s what they did over at Legends Classic Diner on Route 66 in Glendora, California over Memorial Day weekend.

It wasn’t just a bunch of cars taking over the parking lot (although they certainly did do that). The Golden West people brought in a live DJ, raffled away prizes and gave out trophies. LA Car was there to capture an analog moment for our digital world.
