Scenes from the ArtCenter’s show

GALLERY—While much of America was shivering, we Angelinos got to take our pick of car events to attend in October. At the top of LACar’s list this time of year is Car Classic, held annually on the grounds of the ArtCenter College of Design in beautiful Pasadena. This year’s theme of rossa corsa, white, and bleau de France celebrated the “innovative feats of transportation design stemming from Italy, America, and France.” Our intrepid photographer Albert Wong was there to capture some of the special cars and people who came out to enjoy this gem of a local show.
