LA CAR REPORT—Old Pasadena is no stranger to very nice cars. On any given night, you are bound to see a bevy of exotic cars from Aston Martins to Lamborghinis rumbling down Colorado Boulevard or parked in front of upscale restaurants like Mi Piace. But when over 140 Ferraris are parked on Colorado that can only mean that the annual Concorso Ferrari is in town. Story by Glenn Oyoung. Pictures by Albert Wong and Glenn Oyoung.
GALLERY—Most people know Chip Foose from the popular Overhaulin’ show on the Velocity Channel. Car aficionados know Chip as the ground-breaking hot rod designer, Hot Rod Hall of Famer, and the visionary that made the Boyd Coddington show cars famous. His career accomplishments are too numerous to list here. Fortunately, Chip invited members of the Motor Press Guild to his Foose Design shop. Our own Sean Spear was there to capture this gallery of what’s cookin’ and overhaulin’ at the famous Huntington Beach locale.
PHOTO GALLERY—After 20 years as the Southland’s most iconic automotive museum, the Petersen closed its doors for a year to undergo an unprecedented makeover. The 1960s era grille that graced the front of the Petersen Museum when it first opened in 1994 is nowhere to be found. In its place is a stainless steel and Ferrari red work of art that conveys speed, style, freedom, and abandonment. The new Petersen Museum is arguably Los Angeles’ wildest architectural expression since Disney Hall.
GALLERY—The good people that bring you the Japanese Classic Car Show every year have pulled another rabbit out of the hat: The inaugural Street Neo-Classics. A show that showcases the class of cars from the 1980s and 1990s—the era when Japanese cars came into their own. The first Acura. The first Lexus. The first Infiniti. The 300ZX. The Miata. The Toyota AE86. Co-hosting the event and serving as its venue was the Toyota USA National Headquarters in Torrance, California. Robert Shoji was there to capture the event in stills and in motion.
