It was another highly successful Graffiti Night Sizzling on Sutter Street event organized by The Cappuccino Cruisers on Saturday Aug. 17. There was live music, awards, raffles, and more than 200 cars spanning four decades dating back to the 1930s.

“People came from as far as Daley City, Stockton and Gridley,” said Ray Marchese, founder, event coordinator, emcee and disc jockey of Cappuccino Cruisers. Over the microphone, Marchese thanked his wife for supporting the countless hours he spent organizing the event.

Sam Edgemore, 8, of Orangevale, came by with his father, a car enthusiast himself, to check out the classic car show. “I love cars,” he said. “I’ve got about 50 Hot Wheels at home. One day I want to own a race car.”

Trophies were award at the conclusion of the evening to the best cars in their class. The Best of Show went to Carl Robinson’s fully custom 1950 Mercury.
