Judges were given the difficult task of awarding the top vehicles entered in last Sunday’s Cruz’n for Roses Hot Rod and Classic Car Show.

More than 200 cars lined Mission Street from Meridian to Fair Oaks avenues for the event that annually raises from $15,000 to $20,000 to help pay for steel, flowers and other costs associated with the city’s float in the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day.

The following won trophies from this year’s car show:
