The San Marino Classic, in it's second year as the reiteration of the Los Angeles Concours, has truly begun to establish itself as one of the nicest events on the calendar. The setting in San Marino's Lacey Park, one of the most pleasant public parks in LA makes it an ideal location for such an event. In addition, the residents in the area should be commended for allowing spectators and participants alike to park on the surrounding streets. Such local acceptance is rare and should be commended. This year, the Classic attracted an even more impressive field of cars from Brass Era Mercers, Cadillacs, and even a Rambler, through the elegant classics of the Thirties, to post war Jaguars and Mercedes, and even modern era Super Cars. The eclectic mix was further enhanced by hot rods and race cars. If you missed this year's show, make sure you calendar it for next year!
There was no truth to the rumor that the judge's took off points for the ketchup stains in the back seat!
