More than 120 classic woodie wagons were on display April 25 for the annual Doheny Wood car show, held water-side south of Doheny State Beach Campground. The free all-woodie event is hosted by the Southern California Woodie Club, the largest woodie club in the country, with about 300 members from Los Angeles to San Diego.
Dana Point resident Janeann Clark, who’s been a member since the club’s inception in 1997, said this year’s event had a great turnout, despite the afternoon rain. With the money raised from selling T-shirts, posters and raffle tickets, the SoCal Woodie Club was able to donate $1,000 to Camp Pendleton’s Wounded Warriors and another $1,000 to the San Clemente Junior Lifeguard Program and the Doheny Junior Lifeguards/Waterman’s Academy.
The club also shows its cars at October Wood at Lantern Bay Park in Dana Point, as well as at the Dana Point Festival of Whales. For more information, visit www.socalwoodies.com.
