Palm Springs Car Show


Spent another New Years holiday in Palm Springs, which has become a very pleasant ritual. This year we were in time for the monthly car show, featuring hot rods and custom cars, sort of a 50's theme, but not restricted to any sort of era. Lots of great cars from the area, I've pics of only a few. Click on the images to get a higher rez photo.

First up is a beautiful Bucket T, with an unusual V12 engine!



Now a 40 Ford with a huge, blown engine (in the good sense!).



Gotta have flames!



And gotta have a classic Woody, it's SoCal after all...


How about a classic flat head Ford?


A little newer, and more stock, and beautifully restored...




Built for the track...


And for the sports car fans, perhaps the most amazing autos ever built, a couple original Cobras...


The next day, during a walk to get a Sunday paper, I was treated to the old and new simultaneously arriving in front of the supermarket. A classic Rolls, and a new, modern Rolls convertible.



Quite a weekend for a car fan!
