Ocean Park Classic Car Night #9

Ocean Park Classic Car Night #9 was held on April 21. Another great turnout of classic American and European cars and trucks. And unlike most cruise night spots, the Ocean Park Classic Car Night isn't held in a regular parking lot. It's held on the front lawn of the California Heritage Museum. A very picturesque spot, with the historic museum on one end and the beautiful Victorian, a 1892 mansion which is now a restaurant, on the other end. Also, a group of gourmet food trucks fill the back area, offering all types of gourmet food.

The Ocean Park Classic Car Night is community event that's put on by the Ocean Park 26 clothing company. It's held the third Tuesday of each month at the California Heritage Museum alongside their weekly Food Truck event.

Vintage Skate Mag, Flyer & Catalog Scans: H-Street Newsletters

Part 3 of a look into a collection of various skateboarding memorabilia from the late 1980s and early 1990s. Every week (or so), we will pick a couple items to go over and give them high-resolution scans. This week, two newsletters from H-Street.

First up is a H-street Newsletter from October 1991. It is a single page newsletter with printing on both sides. H-Street would send out a newsletter every few months or so, it would give updates on their skate team, products, and info on their next video release. They sent out this newsletter right after Mike Ternasky left the company and started up Plan B, taking several of H-Streets riders with him. This is mentioned in the main section on the front page. Also on the front is info on submitting for sponsorship, a update on their demos, and a section about art work that people have sent to them.

On the back is info on their next video release and more artwork they recieved from fans.

The next newsletter is from 1992. They now called them "The Orange Report". It was a 4 page newsletter printed on orange paper. Unlike the other versions that were folded and put in envelopes, this one was folded, stapled shut, and had the mailing label attached to the front page.

The front page had info on their latest video "Next Generation". The second page contained a quiz about the video, in which the first 20 people to mail in the correct answers would win a skate deck. also on the second page was a best of poll for the video and a section about what all skate team members have been up to.
