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.
AUTO SHOW—If you gathered 100 people and asked them each what their favorite food is, you would probably get scores of different answers. To take it a step further, asking for a single restaurant to cook all of those different food types would seem ne-impossible. Yet, the San Marino Motor Classic tackles the equivalent of this task for cars every year with a can’t-fail attitude. 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. Held the first Saturday in June each year, this year’s theme is “The Sky Is The Limit: A Tribute To American Convertibles.” Reed Berry reports.
