Every Friday night from 5 to 10pm Bob's Big Boy in Burbank is the location of The Burbank Road King's cruise night. In addition to car hop service on weekends, it is part of the MacDonald Family's plan to restore Bob's to its glory days. It is a popular event amongst locals and gearheads alike, and very once in awhile you just might spot Jay Leno wandering amongst the classics. According to my classic car expert, bmacsac1:

The Burbank Road Kings host the gathering but anybody is welcome to bring their car up there as long as it's a kustom, modified, hot rod, drag car , street rod, classic, or exotic...there are many cruise spots thru out the whole state. Calif. has more cruise nights then any other state in the union. SoCal alone has more cruise spots than any other state . Believe it or not, not all the cruise nite locations are on this list either. There are cruise nites 7 days a week all year round provided the weather is good.

In fact, The Glendale Roaders recently started holding their classic car show again at the Glendale Bob's Big Boy on the third Saturday of the month. A million thanks to Bmacsac1 and Canuck Curt for identifying the cars for me. You are the coolest!
