Although we in So Cal have Supercar Sunday in Woodland Hills every week, today Galpin Motors (Van Nuys/North Hills area) had its second annual car show. With over a thousand entrants spread over their many dealerships on Roscoe Blvd., there was a lot to see. I had registered my Pantera two nights ago as I was supposed to have received mine back from restoration/modification by noon yesterday. Unfortunately, on the way to the detailer to wash away and buff out 4 years' worth of dust before being delivered to me, the alternator fried itself, and the car had to be towed back to the shop. Another false alarm, every week something comes up that keeps me from getting my car back. Anyway, there was one white GT5S at the show with an empty space next to it, no doubt reserved for my car. I brought my XXR and parked with the Jaguar contingency. For those who pre-registered even up til yesterday, Galpin served a wonderful (and free) champagne breakfast in their mezzanine Aston Martin showroom. It was quite appealing. There were thousands of spectators roaming from one dealership to another looking at all types of cars. Plenty of Ferraris, Lambos, Lotuses, Porsches, Astons, and one lonely Pantera. But my favorite car of the day besides a spectacular Series I XKE, was a 1962 (I think) convertible Lincoln Continental with the license plate that read RIP JFK. It was breathtaking. Here's a couple of pictures from the event and maybe next year we can get a Pantera group to rival the Lambo and Ferrari guys.
