The Road Kings: Featured Car Club Follow Up
November 19, 2018
The Road Kings of Burbank were featured on the Main Aisle at our October 14th show and they cruised in with a fantastic variety of vehicles! From antique cars to classic trucks, muscle cars to roadsters, and even a few car-trucks (yep, several members showed up in badass El Caminos!), there was something that any car enthusiast could appreciate. If you weren’t able to come out to the show, here’s what you missed!
Don Hoffman bought his 1940 Ford Deluxe Coupe at the Pomona Swap Meet in 1987! Thirty years later, and it’s got power everything, a 302 engine, and an AOD transmission.
Al Brumbach worked with his son to fix up this incredible ’52 Ford F1 pickup. The truck has a Cleveland engine that generates 500-hp.
Bruce Borst couldn’t afford a 1971 El Camino SS when he was in high school so he bought one now! This car is fast… and famous! Bruce’s car has been in several movies and TV shows, including The Mentalist, American Crime, True Blood, and Lethal Weapon. This El Camino has its own agent!
Ray Astamendi’s son built his ’69 El Camino. Its got a big block engine and air ride suspension.

The Road Kings have a storied history, and they’re always open to new members. Membership is limited to 1978 and older American classics, muscle cars, trucks, and special interest vehicles. Vehicles, and their owners, that are being considered for membership are judged by a panel of three judges at an Executive Board Meeting. Vehicles are judged on their engine, suspension, wheels, exhaust, paint, and interior. Think you’ve got what it takes? Visit the Road Kings’ website for more information.
