About / Rock 'N Rod Nites

In 1995, we began what we then called the Rock 'N Rod Nites series of car show events in Watsonville, California. May through September, once a month, we put together what started out to be simple graffiti night style shows. The shows quickly grew into full car shows with Trophies and all. We added a show in October and called it our Encore Night with no awards that show. At times we hit the 230 rod mark at the shows, but space was very limited. We located a new location, did preliminary arrangements to make the move for the 2001 season. In 2001 the Directors (Brother and Sister) moved to the Central Valley. Pam & Delton moved to Los Banos and Dennis moved to Hughson. With that we passed the baton to the Road Angels who took over where we left off. The name was changed from Rock 'N Rod Nites to Back in Time. The BIT 2001 season was a success, and season opener for their BIT 2002 series broke the 250 rod mark at the show. So the idea to move to the new location was indeed a good one, RNR just didn't get to try it out. In 2005, the Back in Time series came to a halt when the shopping center decided that the shows took up to much room. So in September of 2005, when the final BIT show came to a close, an 11 year run of Cruise-In shows in Watsonville became history.

In July of 2005, we started a new adventure...  Rock 'N Rod Nites at Bonander was unveiled, we were off to a new start. In partnership with the Bonander Pontiac Buick GMC dealership in downtown Turlock, California. April though October on the 4th Friday evening of the month except for June when we take the month off while the dealership puts of it's big annual show. Be sure to stop by if you haven't been to the new Rock 'N Rod Nites at Bonander Cruise-In series yet. We have a new web site set-up for Rock 'N Rod Nites at Bonander. Visit: to learn more.

The main website remains today, but no longer is devoted specifically to to the old Rock 'N Rod Nite shows. Today it'ss main purpose has changed to a Car Show listing calendar site as well as a place to hold Car Show photo albums that have become a popular item on RNR. The site is still a one person project without corporate support. So please visit an affiliate link or two, if you buy something from them, this then supports RNR and is definitely appreciated here. So, as you can see, is indeed alive and well as it marks it's 11th consecutive year online September of 2006.
