Sunday, June 14 saw the fifth—and without question, largest—installment of SoCal’s now-famous Quarantine Cruise. Now, since I neglected to attend a16ny of the QCs leading up to this past “extravaganza”, I relied on my old cohort, Jason “IJ” Scudellari, one of the Cruise’s founders, to fill us in on all the details:
“The cruise all started when HEK Valdez (@hektattoo) and myself (@week2wickedjason) got sick of being locked up…so we cruised downtown Huntington Beach with a couple of our old trucks. We decided to get out and talk amongst each other on Main Street, and as we were talking Patrick (@keystoneautomotiveoperations) started shooting photos of our trucks. HEK and I decided we should send out an invite on IG and see if we could get a few more cars, while Patrick asked if he could post the cruise up on the ‘gram too. We went from three cars to 30 cars, and Patrick called Ken Johnson @classicsdaily (who coincidentally has 1.7 million followers) and invited him to come out to the next cruise. He did, and that one we managed to get 130 cars. With all four of us working together, the fourth cruise attracted 1500 cars—and today’s fifth cruise we had nearly 2500 cars in attendance!
