If you want to see the hottest cars of today along side the classic automobiles of the past, the Virginia Beach Boardwalk is the place to be.
The Cruisin’ Virginia Beach Car Show turns the boardwalk into a local version of “Route 66” with cars and trucks from yesterday and today competing for trophies and cash prizes at this one-day event. Hot rods, street machines, classic cars, and trucks line the boardwalk for 25 blocks, where thousands of car enthusiasts and families view over 200 vehicles in a beautiful beach setting.
A popular event at this show is the annual controlled competitive burnout event. This contest is held after the cars are displayed during the day, causing the night to heat up with this rubber burning excitement. In the municipal lot on 18th Street and Atlantic Avenue, today’s street cars compete for the highest smoke and the crowd’s approval.
