CSUEB’s 2nd Annual Car Show: Classic Muscle Cars Steal The Show


Jared Darling

It was evident that Ford Mustangs, from all years, were the most prominent car at the show, with two securing awards. A 1968 mustang took home the “Best Original” award and a 1967 mustang took home the “Most Character/Unique” award.

On Saturday, Oct. 22, 2022, the CSUEB’s Alumni Association put on its second annual homecoming car show. The event was filled with good vibes, classic music from past decades, and CSUEB pride. Overall, there were 100 automobiles and three motorcycles in attendance, representing all years of automotive history, as the oldest car in attendance was a 1931 Ford Model A. Among the 103 participants, 23 of them were alumni of CSUEB and many of them were alumni of CSUEB’s predecessor, Cal State Hayward. Even in its infancy, this car show has the makings of becoming a homecoming staple for CSUEB, as it will continue to grow with people already anticipating the 2023 show.
