38th Annual Bent Axles Cruise & BBQ Weekend

Words & Photos by Sherm Porter

The third weekend in July is reserved for the annual Bent Axles of Santa Maria cruise, show & BBQ…a weekend of socials, show, cruising and finalizing with an ‘all you can eat’ BBQ lunch.

With more than 200 entries and the additional 100 or so club member cars, the small Old Town Orcutt is busting at the seams…under beautiful skies, the entrants and spectators are welcomed with live music, raffles, door prizes and several local vendors with displays of pin-striping, engine raffle, custom painting and chassis builders.

If you’ve never attended, put this one down, you will not be disappointed…
