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. Brian Kennedy reports.

FLAVOR OF LA: FOOD, CARS, LIBATIONS
Only in L.A. And what could be better? Fine food, great drink and delicious cars at CBS

lacar12

Honestly, what could be better (and more “LA Car”) than hanging around a big old Hollywood (okay, Studio City, which is adjacent to Hollywood) backlot (where they shot “The Wild Wild West”!) looking at all kinds of crazy, classic, and otherwise v. cool cars, telling tales of automotive derring-do to any and all, and being begged to sample savory food strong drink from a whole bunch of LA’s best dining establishments? Our tall, lanky guest reporter, and man of a thousand projects, Dave Wolin gives us a look and a taste.

AUTOFEST 2017
LA’s own automotive festivus for the rest of us, Sunday, June 25th

EVENT—Originally called the “Literature Faire”, AutoFest2017 carries on a decades-old annual LA tradition that mixes an amazing array of automotive memorabilia into one magic morning in June when memories are stirred, old friends meet, treasures are found, and automobiles in all their variations are celebrated, (and where some of us find copies of the Road & Track magazines that our Moms threw out when we were in college). Like Brigadoon, (or more “LA” perhaps a LudoBites pop-up), AutoFest is real for only one day of the year. Editor Stokes invites LA Car readers to an event that they’ll doubtless feel very comfortable attending.
