SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

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.
