Why Does Huntington Beach Have So Many Hot Rods?

Welcome to the June Blog for HB Auto & AC! 

Have you ever noticed how many hot rod cars are driving around Huntington Beach, California? Just last month, our blog featured the many events going on this summer. There are dozens of hot rod car events in the summer months.


The area grabs the attention of hot rod collectors and enthusiasts who come from all over to attend the wide range of hot rod events, and for good reasons-- we're the perfect community for it.


Here are some reasons why Huntington Beach draws the hot rod community:


Older demographic --  Classic cars are typically more prevalent among older men and are less popular among the younger generations. Because most people in Huntington beach are older, hot rods remain popular in the area. Most of the people in attendance at hot rod events are older men. These classic cars take people back to the simpler times and help to make them feel young again.


Fun in the Sun --  Since the 1950s, most hot rods gathered in Southern California. Men would take their cars to the nearby deserts and lake beds in Los Angeles. The area has turned into the home base for hot rod vehicles and continues to be a popular area for these cars. Because of the beautiful warm weather in Southern California, convertible tops are a feature that keeps locals interested in hot rods, especially in the summertime.


Affluent community -- Huntington Beach is a beautiful place to live in Orange County. The cost of living there is on the pricier side, as the area itself is very posh. The majority of people living in the area earn a higher income and can afford expensive and luxurious items for themselves, such as classic cars.


California Leisure Culture -- California is a place for people to either dream big or come to enjoy the little things in life. The warm climate of Southern California makes it a perfect place for people to relax and escape the pressures of their everyday lives. The leisure culture in California also makes it an ideal place for dreamers looking for adventures and new opportunities. There’s nothing quite like the adventure of driving a hot rod down the Pacific Coast Highway.
