Over 400 cars ranging from 1950s Chevrolets to 21st-century sports cars lined the bustling stretch of Second Street for the 30th annual Belmont Shore Car Show, Sunday.
About 30,000 people strolled around by bike or on foot to learn more about or just simply admire the automobiles.
“It’s a lot to appreciate,” show-goer Samuel Enriquez said.
Enriquez had never been to a car show before, and only learned of the Belmont Shore Car Show when he saw the road closure. Though he said he is generally more interested in sports cars, he admired the classics because he said he’s seen these types of cars deteriorate.
Ted Quinn brought his 1929 Ford Roadster to line up behind his three friends’ antiques. Built by the famous mechanic Jimmy Shine, the roadster’s appearance to the Belmont show was a first.
“My friend went blind and he couldn’t drive it anymore, so I bought it off him,” Quinn said. “I couldn’t take him today, but I take him to other car shows.”
