Classic Performance Products (CPP) has been making its mark in the classic truck arena for some time. In fact, the company was founded in 1991, that’s 20 years of making performance parts. CPP wanted to do something to give back to their truck customers and so became the 1st Annual CPP Classic Truck Cruise and Shop Tour. The day started off early in the morning at a local Rite Aid where a driver’s meeting was held to help organize the giant group of trucks going on the cruise. The caravan of classic trucks rolling through Fullerton, California, was something you don’t get to see or be a part of very often. Truck after truck rumbled through the streets, and when the caravan arrived at CPP the show began.

For an inaugural show, CPP did it right. Classic trucks (Chevys, Fords, and GMCs) filled the parking lot and surrounding streets. The truck show drew over 125 trucks that drove in from different parts of the U.S., but most were from Southern California. For a first-time show this was impressive. The shop tour consisted of a tour through their R&D, manufacturing, and shipping and receiving facility located inside their 35,000 sq-ft building. Getting to see how a part is made, going from raw material to finished product, really allows you to appreciate the work that goes into making it and the workers’ pride in making said product. The show and tour itself was great, but then they threw in lunch from Carl’s Jr. and $10,000 in raffle prizes. I would say they definitely showed some appreciation to their customers at this event. ct
