(Staff photo by Eric Bojanowski) By Sara Shell, Forum Publishing Group September 27, 2013 A stroll down a stretch of Hollywood Boulevard was like taking a trip down memory lane. Despite a little rain, music from the Beach Boys set the scene for dozens of classic, modern and custom cars, trucks and other vehicles. After a one-year hiatus, the Dream Car Classic recently returned to downtown Hollywood. The show, which can feature up to 90 cars, is sponsored by the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency and the Downtown Hollywood Business Association. It will be staged the first Sunday of each month through May. “The venue makes this show really special,” said Joe Bevelacqua, event coordinator. “Merchants are offering discounts to car owners. And the downtown really gets a lot of foot traffic.” Bevelacqua said that in the past, the show was only open to cars of a certain era. “So many people wanted to get in, I opened it for all types of cars,” he said. “We have a lot of repeat attendees, but a lot of the cars here today, I haven’t seen before.” Before the start of the show, registration was nearly full and cars lined up for their spot along the street. The kickoff Dream Car Classic featured cars like Chevy Novas and Camaros, including the official pace car of the 53rd Indianapolis 500 from 1969. Volkswagens, Fords and Chryslers also were among the vehicles represented. Bevelacqua emphasized that the Dream Car Classic is a family-friendly event.
