The Murrieta Rod Run is a two day event located in Downtown Murrieta. 100% of the proceeds are donated to Oak Grove Center, a nonprofit residential, education and treatment center for about 800 at-risk and special needs youth. Although the first Murrieta Rod Run was held a decade ago, this is my first time attending. I couldn’t image a better venue for this event, the classic cars are lined up on streets older than the cars themselves. Many of the buildings the meticulous vehicles are parked in front of are well over a century old. I used to walk with my sisters every day after elementary school along side these historic structures like the old market, donut shop and post office on our way to the Machine Shop, where we would wait with our parents in the office of long time Murrieta resident Arlean Garrison. This Rod Run is like a trip down memory lane, but with a lot more vehicles along the way.

    Actor David Boreanaz said, “I like old cars, old watches, anything with a vintage, antique kind of a feel to it. I’m just more in tune with that than anything else.” I feel that way about classic cars for sure. I feel, when I see the coolness you shared, that I was born in the wrong decade. It looks like a blast from the blast… in many ways (with your family history). It’s awesome that your Dad got to participate, too. Wow.
