Yes that’s a real live DC-3 mounted on a large and obviously sturdy plinth, and it creates nice shade for car show attendees and picniers.
Here’s another local show that I really enjoyed, and slothfully waited far to long to post up these great Kirk Gerbracht photos of it. Great cars, great locale, and great fun day. I’m hoping you agree that late truly is still better than never…
Many great Giulias and Giuliettas belong to this club, and many on display this fine day.
Club car show chair Jeff always saves a few spots in the show for non-Alfa, which is nice as it breaks up the field a bit. This is shooter Kirk’s screaming yellow zonker Corvette, and you can just see a sliver of my silver Benz SL on the left.
I totally dig these ’69 Spider 1750s because they still give you the Duetto’s rounded rump, and elegant, minimally bumpered nose with some attractive headlight covers.
Nobody can say that “all Alfas are just the same anyway.” Variety a great Italian spice in this case.
Not just a GTV but a real factory lightweight GTA racer — hard to come by, desirable, and expensive now.
Car show chairman Jeff’s ’74 Spider is a regular drive, but also a concours winner. I’ve put a lot of miles on this car and like it a lot.
A car that deserves more respect than it gets, the later model GTV and GTV6 coupes are darn handsome, real Alfas all the way, and a good fun drive.
You don’t need to own an Alfa to join this club and enjoy the people and the fun, but you might as well buy one and enjoy the car too. Attractive, Italian, and most area a ball to drive.
…and even if you’re not going for the cars, the Santa Monica Museum of Flying is worth a visit just for the planes.
