Sunday, July 1st, 2001 was the first ever Hot Rods & Custom Stuff Casino Cruise.

For those of you that did not participate, a great time was had by all. In all, we rounded up about 120 cars for a cruise that made the rounds of the Valley View, Rincon, Pauma, Pala and Pechanga Casinos. Don't despair if you missed it though - this cruise was such a success that we plan to make it annual, or possibly bi-annual event. As soon as we know when the next is, we'll post information on our site.

The Cruise, sponsored by Hot Rods & Custom Stuff and the Time Travelers of San Diego began at 8 a.m. with an Open House at HR&CS, where free donuts and coffee were consumed in great quantities (caffeine and sugar being the high-test fuels of choice among true hot rodders). Fueling continued until 10, when everybody climbed aboard their ride of choice and lit out for the first reservation.

The weather for the cruise was great (a bit hot and humid, but bearable). The route was an easy and senic drive through San Diego's hills and back-country roads. Hot Rods provided a truck and car hauler in case anyone had problems along the way, but no one did.
