LITTLE CARS, BIG SHOW
Old Town Upland rolls with the Southwest Unique Little Car Show

GALLERY—37 years ago, it was called the Weird Little Car Show by micro car aficionados in Arizona. Since then, the name has changed (to the Southwest Unique Little Car Show), and venue has been hopping all over the Southwest. The April 2017 show was in Old Town Upland, California—surely one of the best venues for the event. LA Car went down to Upland with a tiny Fiat 500e to partake in the big show.

The Mecum Auctions in Pomona

AUTO EVENT—The Mecum Auctions (surely you’ve seen one on television … right … way cool cars, trucks, motorcycles, even man cave memorabilia all being paraded across an open stage in front of a raucous crowd, each barely slowing down as they cross from left to right, only to pause for what seems split seconds with an auctioneer shouting, cajoling, challenging, and quite unsubtly suggesting prices that ratchet show on a gargantuan overheard scoreboard that flashes the current bid in bucks, euros, and two or three other basic world currencies) were just in town.

THE CLASSIC AUTO SHOW
Paean to Mrs. Meyer and Her Summer Trip

AUTO SHOW—When your husband invites you to accompany him on a road trip in mid-July, for a gathering of automotive enthusiasts up the coast, the proposal conjures images of leisurely jaunt in a comfortable motor car suitable for the long road with all modern accouterments, one of which obviously being an efficient air conditioning system. After all, it’s summer. It could get hot.
