Vista 30th Rod Run Tomorrow August 4th


The Vista Rod Run rolled into downtown Vista on a hot August Sunday morning in 1990 and has resulted in a tradition for the last 30 years. This year will have some new elements. Most of the trophy categories have changed to broaden the scope of who can win. Instead of Best 50’s Chevy, the trophy will go to “Best Chevy”. Other winners will be Best Muscle Car, Best Mopar, Best Ford, Best 1930’s, Best Original, Best 1970’s, and More!

Five Star Premier Events has added something new every year to keep the show fresh. One of the shows unique traits is that they come up with a different trophy each year for the winners, from tire wheel clocks, pistons, custom welded pieces and more. This year will be unique from all others. Join us on Sunday, August 4, 2019 from 9am-2pm, in Historic Downtown Vista, 307 Main St., Vista, 92084.

This is a free Family event.

We’re also pleased to announce a new business in town opening soon, and has stepped up to be this years Title Sponsor. Please welcome Trade Craft Farms which will open mid-August in the old Radio Shack building at E. Vista Way, Vista 92084.

Another fun addition is a museum exhibit which will celebrate 30 years of the Vista Rod Run.

We have two car owners who have attended all 29 years, making this year their 30th!

Returning this year, is TJ Crossmans’ Auto Repair Car Giveaway. He will be giving away a refurbished car to a person/family. The winner will be announced at the Awards Presentation.

The hip and Historic Main Street, rich in character and personality, will showcase some of the finest and most unique vintage hand-built artistry from all over Southern California. Each year more and more car clubs and solo riders come out and experience one of the best car shows in the County for the entire family.
