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.
GALLERY— If you’ve driven anywhere in Southern California, you know the BMW marque is more than just popular. With California being car culture ground zero, it is not surprising to see one of the biggest shows in the country for BMWs to be hosted here. BimmerFest 2016 was held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana for 2016. The event has grown year-after-year, with people coming from near and far to see these German masterpieces on display. Mark Dorman 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.
GALLERY—More scenes from the 9th Annual Concorso Ferrari, hosted by the Ferrari Club of America (FCA) Southwest Region.
