37th Annual Bent Axles Cruise & Barbeque

Words & Photos by Sherm Porter

This has become one of the top events in the Central Coast to attend, as an entrant, or even a spectator. The show itself is held the 3rd Weekend of July in the quaint village of Old Town Orcutt, although that’s only part of the festivities, which include strawberry shortcake parties and a poker run ending with a filling BBQ on Sunday. Entries start rolling in on Friday, headed for a fun-filled weekend. The members of the Bent Axles are well known for the hospitality they put forth during the event.

With upwards of 300 entries lining the street and parking areas, there is plenty of eye candy, live music, vendors, and the largest assortment of giveaways for the drawing that you can imagine…hope to see you here next year!
