The show featured as many as 200 cars in a wide variety of categories including vintage cars, woodies, high end sports cars and classic cars.

There were rare cars in the show that included a 1925 Rolls Royce Phantom, 1936 Delahaye, 1909 EMF touring car and a 1941 Packard One Eighty.

A 1925 Rolly Royce Phantom from the Peterson Museum was one of the very rare cars at the show.

The cars were all showcased on the green grass of La Jolla Cove making it an absolutely fabulous event. Add in the fact that the weather was perfect and temperatures reached the high 70’s along the coast.

The La Jolla Motor Car Classic is starting to bring in some very high end classic cars that match and rival car shows in Pebble Beach and other locations along the Northern California coast.

“There is an avid group of car collectors in the San Diego and Southern California area that make this show special” said collector Max Epstein.
For many collectors, this is the only show of the year that they participate in making it more special”.  

A 1909 EMF was the oldest car in the show. It started right up with a crank on the front end.

The oldest car at the show was a 1909 EMF, a car that was produced by EMF and then sold by Studibaker. The car had a front end crank and it started right up for judges when the time came.

Another very rare car was a 1925 Rolls Royce Phantom which was brought down from the Peterson Museum in Los Angeles.

“These are cars that the poublic rarely gets a chance to see and it is a tribute to Promote La Jolla and the other groups responsible for organizing the event” said Hans Erickson another avid car collector and classic car fanatic.

“I am already getting ready for the 2010 car show and this one isn’t even over yet” he said smiling as he walked through the event.

A rare Bentley is another one of the cars featured at the car show.
