… The variety of cars is worth the stroll in a perfectly military style laid-out paddock. From one-of-a-kind, such as Peter Giddings ex-Nuvolari 1932 Alfa Romeo Monza (if you squint long enough you can almost see Tazio in the cockpit holding the steering wheel) to more mundane Datsuns 240Z, 510 or Porsches 914s.
LA CAR REPORT—“I look forward to the Japanese Classic Car Show every year. The quality of the cars, the inclusive vibe, and the postcard-like backdrop of the Long Beach shoreline and the iconic Queen Mary make JCCS a unique gem of a local car show. That’s saying something in SoCal, the land where neither cars nor coffee need to hibernate for the winter.” Story by Glenn Oyoung. Pictures by Glenn Oyoung and Albert Wong.
LA CAR REPORT—The Long Beach Mustang show, held on the lawn near the Queen Mary for years, now finds itself at the Pike, an area next to the seaside still in sight of the grand old ship in downtown Long Beach. The lawns were full on Sunday, September 25th, with hundreds of Mustangs lining up side-by-side up the hill and around the corner from the Long Beach Aquarium for the event now known as Ponies at the Pike.

EVENT— Where did the summer go? August gave way to September, which means fall is around the corner. Luckily for those gear heads that live in Monrovia and surrounding cities, it also means one big bash to celebrate all things hot rod before the weather turns. The 26th Annual Monrovia Hot Rod & Custom Car Show rolled into Downtown Monrovia, taking over the historic Myrtle Avenue main drag. Glenn Oyoung writes about it; Sean Spear captures the chrome on his camera.
AUTO SHOW— The recent heat wave that started this past weekend did not detract spectators from heading out to Paseo Colorado and enjoying the Pasadena Police 15th Annual Classic Car Show on Sunday. The car show’s timing was excellent, as it was held on Father’s Day and in conjunction with the always-interesting Pasadena Chalk Festival. Story and pictures by Glenn Oyoung.
