SAN BERNARDINO Vehicle registration forms for the 17th Annual Stater Bros. Route 66 Rendezvous® Presented by Firestone, Sept. 14-17, 2006, are now available!
The four-day, three-night cruisin' car show is a nostalgic celebration where classic car enthusiasts from around the world gather to get their kicks on Route 66 in downtown San Bernardino.
An exclusive downtown cruise route, 525 reserved participant parking spaces along the cruise route and a new look for Meadowbrook Park are some of the positive changes for the Rendezvous in the on-going efforts to improve the event for the participants and the spectators.
Registration is open to vehicles from model year 1900 through 1973 and any year Corvette, Viper or Prowler.
Rendezvous organizers will again limit the number of vehicles in order to provide a safe and fun atmosphere for all classic car enthusiasts.
The first 2,448 vehicles will be allowed to participate. That number commemorates the total miles from Chicago to Santa Monica on the original historic Route 66 highway.

of the vehicle and a current copy of your DMV registration along with a completed event registration form. Check-in for pre-registration and on-site registration will be held at the Carousel Mall in Lot M off of G Street in San Bernardino.
