Here’s yet another great local car show I’ve been too lazy a sloth to post up and share with you. Nice location, nice sized show, some nice cars, and free entry.
Plus great Kirk Gerbracht photos. Enjoy.
The dedicate marque for this year’s Ventura event was Jaguar so this little show was crawling with Browns Lane Kitties of all age and stripe. Harbor location is nice, note boats and water in the background.
Big and seriously French Blue Talbot Lago brought here from the nearby Mullin Automotive Museum.
I always love it when some car owner designer wannabe feels they can out style and out design Pininfarina or another of the world’s great coachbuilders. This poor car began life as a 330 GT 2+2, which some may argue wasn’t Pininfarina’s best work to begin with, but this this homespun restyle make it better? Not so much. In fact, not at all.
Here’s another 330 GT 2+2 Series II without the home butcher job. As an odd footnote, the black car above was “customized’ in the late 1960s and recently sold at auction for big bucks.
This fabulous XK120 Roadster got my vote for best in show; it’s a great, historic model, this example was authentically and perfectly restored, in marvelous, elegant period colors. Yum, purr.
Not old, so let’s call it a modern classic. I certainly never get tired of looking at a triple black SL63 AMG.
Future classics all — that you can drive and enjoy: a 911 Turbo slantnose, the sublime Acura NSX, and a modern day T-Bird.
Yes, it’s real. Nothing much revs my motor better than a no flares, no sidepipes small-block Shelby Cobra.
People often ask me what’s a good classic to buy that’s fun, great to drive, and has potential to increase in value; this is my current favorite answer. Buy the best unmodified, original, low mile Triumph TR6 you can buy, and you’ll be happy now and in the future.
