Most of you probably know about the gathering of all kinds of cars, trucks and motorcycles on Sundays at Oak Beach. It’s non stop from early morning, like maybe 7am or earlier till after 10. I arrive about 8:30 and it’s hard to find a place to park as a spectator, also for a show car, but there’s always cars leaving, I leave about 9:45 and they are still coming
