Chevrolet Tahoe LT Midnight Edition 4X4

AUTO REVIEW—“The best thing you can do is to get your ass out of here by catching the Midnight Express.” No, we’re not referring to the Academy Award-winning movie from the 1970s.

Get ready. They’ll be at the Fairplex in Pomona on February 16-17th.

CHOSEN
Hector Cademartori is the official artist of the 2018 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach

He started out drawing racing scenes of Lotuses, BRMs and Ferraris in his note pads at school, and his fellow students loved them. Over time he learned to appreciate the history of racing in the 30s, 40s, 50s….and the romance of those years which lend themselves to beautiful art. Now, LACar’s own Hector Cademartori has been chosen as the official artist of the 2018 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.
