CAR CLASSIC IN RED WHITE & BLUE
Scenes from the ArtCenter’s show

GALLERY—While much of America was shivering, we Angelinos got to take our pick of car events to attend in October. At the top of LACar’s list this time of year is Car Classic, held annually on the grounds of the ArtCenter College of Design in beautiful Pasadena. This year’s theme of rossa corsa, white, and bleau de France celebrated the “innovative feats of transportation design stemming from Italy, America, and France.” Our intrepid photographer Albert Wong was there to capture some of the special cars and people who came out to enjoy this gem of a local show.

THE BEST OF FRANCE AND ITALY CAR SHOW
and only in L.A.!

LA CAR REPORT—Even the veiled threat of early fall showers a week or two ago couldn’t prevent the cognoscenti and other assorted francophones and italophiles from attending this year’s edition of The Best of France and Italy Car Show. Our staffer who once owned a Ferrari, Dave Wolin, takes us for a stroll at the annual gathering of the faithful in (freeway close) Woodley Park.

PONIES AT THE PIKE
Mustang World Gets Younger

AUTO SHOW—The Beach Cities Mustang Club sponsored its 21st annual Ponies at the Pike Mustang show in Long Beach, gathering a turnout of several hundred Mustangs. One thing the show proved: Mustang people will buy almost anything, as long as they can bolt it onto their car. Various Mustangs, mostly late-models, had the following assortment of extras attached to their Ford-produced bodies: lowering kits, huge wheels, chrome intakes, nitrous kits, Recaro seats, decals of giant horses, scissor doors, and on and on.
