Muscle Beach took on a whole new meaning as the 20th edition of Southern California's Quarantine Cruise rolled into Long Beach's beautiful Belmont Shore after a spirited run along the famed PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) on the sunny Sunday October 17 morning. While much of the country is taking in the seasonal transition to fall colors and early snow, the owners of more than 1,500 hot rods, muscle cars, trucks, vintage Jeeps, and even a few exotics took advantage of the beautiful coastal climate to enjoy the comradery of the one-of-a-kind monthly gathering.

The format is simple: Kick off the day at one location, enjoy one another's rides for a few hours over coffee and breakfast, and then hit the road to take in the ocean breezes and arrive together at a second location to compare notes, take photos, and share in the experience of the day. With the beautifulSOCO and the Mix retail complex in Costa Mesa, California,serving as the backdrop to commence the festivities, the morning crowd was treated to a virtually endless serving of the senses in every color, size, shape, and displacement imaginable. From NASCAR tribute cars to an amazing array of muscle, the gathering also attracts a variety of clubs and groups including K5 Blazers, Ford Broncos, Volkswagens, Camaros, Corvettes, Mustangs,Mopars,and everything in betweenincluding Steve Aguilar's recently named Goodguys Muscle Machine of the Year: the Infrared 1971 Camaro. There were so many cool rides at the event that we decided to first focus on all the sweet trucks, wagons, SUVs, and non-car rides that showed up.

The Quarantine Cruise is the brainchild of Jason Scudellari, Hek Valdez, Patrick Wagenbrenner (from @keystoneautomotiveoperations—a large aftermarket distributor), and Ken Johnson (who also runs the classicsdaily and boostednova Instagram accounts), who set out to bring together everyone who had grown tired of postponed or cancelled get-togethers brought on by seemingly endless COVID lockdowns. What began with just 35 cars at the first event has swelled into a happening that now regularly sees between 1,000 and 2,000 rides show up each month.

"Here we are almost two years into doing this, and everyone's enthusiasm for The Cruise keeps growing month in and month out," co-founder Hector (Hek) Valdez said. "This started because we were getting a little stir-crazy sitting at home last spring, and now people are coming from hundreds of miles away to come cruise with us. It's incredibly surreal and humbling to know that a few of us going for a drive has grown into this shared experience that people really enjoy being a part of. There really is nothing like the Quarantine Cruise."
