Car enthusiasts, listen up! On Sunday, June 12 over 250 cars will be on display waiting to be worshiped in Lacy Park, San Marino. YES, it’s the annual San Marino Motor Classic Show featuring a huge selection of collector cars from Brass and Nickel Era cars to American Muscle cars, Hot Rods and everything in between. Staple cars such as Ferrari, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz will be showcased alongside Jaguar, Alfa Romeo and Rolls-Royce.
While strolling and admiring the cars make sure to take a break and head over to the trade booths with gift items and food trucks, which will be available during the event. At the end of the day, an awards ceremony will take place, in which seven prestigious awards are given.
If you’re a true motor enthusiast, then don’t miss the pre-event gala on Saturday, Jun 11. The morning offers an Architectural Driving Tour of Pasadena and in the evening eight cars, spanning over a century, will glide down an elevated runway accompanied by music of the era performed by the USC Trojan Marching Band, the number one college marching band in the country. In other words, a super fun filled weekend!!
The San Marino Motor Classic was founded by Aaron Weiss, Ben Reiling and Paul Colony in 2010. It’s an annual “community event bringing public awareness to the history of the motor vehicle through a broad spectrum exhibition of historical automobiles from the early to mid-twentieth century”. The car show has since raised over $1 million in proceeds from the event benefiting the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA and the Rotary Club of San Marino. Gala proceeds will go to the USC Trojan Marching Band.
“The San Marino Motor Classic is more than just a car show,” says Aaron Weiss, event co-founder and co-chair. “It’s an opportunity to learn about automotive history, while supporting worthy causes.”
