OPGI Spring Summer Series: Buick Show

Spring Summer Series: Buick Show

Our 2018 Spring-Summer Series kicked off with an all-Buick car show on Saturday, May 19th. We had around 50 beautiful Buicks in our parking lot in an array of models, years, and colors. With drawings, food trucks, and a live DJ, you didn’t have to own a Buick to get in on the fun! Those who did bring their Buicks had their cars judged, and the winners were awarded trophies.

 

“Opportunity Drawings” took place over most of the morning!

Buick Line-Up

Although the show festivities didn’t begin until 9 am, show participants lined up bright and early on the street outside of OPGI headquarters to get a prime location at the show.

 

 

Participating Vendors

In addition to the fleet of cars on display, the show included booths set up from multiple vendors for show participants and spectators to check out. The friendly folks at AutoMeter were kind enough to donate a 3-gauge cluster for our drawing.

The Seal Beach Lion’s club served a delicious pancake breakfast along with coffee and refreshments for the duration of the show.

Guaranty Chevrolet was set up providing information and a game of cornhole for show-goers to play.

Classic Performance Products, Inc (CPP) had a booth set up with a display of brake parts and components. CPP donated over 100 brake bleeder kits for goodie bags given to show registrants.

The guys at Chronic Tacos were set up on the north side of the OPGI building serving up delicious tacos and homemade tortilla chips.

Hotchkis was also in attendance showing off their assortment of suspension product offerings.
