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.

The result is an annual smorgasbord of all types of automobiles that succeeds in having something for everyone. Sean Spear reports.
AUTO SHOW—“Ragtop Day” is not just the name of a popular Jimmy Buffett song, it also seems to appropriately describe the 22nd Annual Gilmore Heritage Auto Show in Los Angeles.

Yeah, we know this is LA CAR (dot) COM … but we just could not resist these notes and great shots from our tall, well-traveled contributor from the Yosemite foothills. Here are Dave Wolin’s cool photos and brief tale of the SVRA vintage sports car races at whatever they’re calling Sears Point these days. More than 200 of these rolling treasures, ranging in value from a $30 million+ Ferrari GTO to a $20,000 Bugeye Sprite (!), filled the paddock, each and every one of them making those old fashion joyful noises that were a truly a pleasure to hear.
