Tired of going to the zoo, beach or amusement park. This year in California there is a variety of different car shows and events that will shake up your everyday summer routine.
The San Marino Motor Classic celebrates its fifth year at fabulous Lacy Park in sunny San Marino, California. Over 200 classic and collectible cars spread over 34 classes will crowd the Lacy Park lawn from 9-3 Sunday. The heart of the show is the Grand Classic section courtesy of the Southern California Region Classic Car Club of America. The CCCA entries offer a sort of mini-Pebble with beautiful Duesenbergs, Packards, Lincolns and Cadillacs from the 1930s. Surrounding those are just about every kind of car you could want to see at a car show, from woodies to Corvettes and even some race cars. Last year was a great collection of classic Porsches and even a land speed racer or two.
“We’re entering our fifth year of putting on a solid car show,” says Aaron Weiss, event co-founder and co-chair. “We produce a standout spectacle not only for car enthusiasts, but for our benefiting charities. Whether it’s pre-war, post-war, hot rods — even motorcycles—we have a great show for everyone to enjoy. ”
Top honors at the 2014 event went to a 1957 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster from Hjeltness Restoration, Inc. of Escondido and a 1929 Duesenberg Model J Dual Cowl Phaeton owned by John Muckel of Rancho Palos Verdes. Advance tickets are available online for $25. VIP Spectator tickets are also available for $125, which includes a gourmet lunch, wine and beer. Tickets the day of the event are $30. Children 12 and under are free. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www. sanmarinomotorclassic.com.
