Just A Day In The Sun...Concouring

So I'm screwing around in the garage and I think, should I enter the upcoming PCA Concour. I ponder, why not as I glance at the car...I'll enter the "Display" class, just show the car for judging. Then my memory kicks in and starts to take me back to past shows I've entered....good experiences, every one. With the help of blog follower photo journalist, Bob Lampert, here are some images of past shows and locations.

" Welcome PCA"...Back then it was all 356's, 914's and 911's, circa 1975.

This image was taken at the Hilton Hotel on Mission Bay, circa 1975.

I'm not sure who the girl was relaxing at the Hilton...but I thought I would run the image because she's easy on the eyes.

This image was taken at the Fashion Valley Shopping Center, circa 1976. Notice the Center is only one story high.

This show was held at Grossmont Shopping Center, circa 1978, a common place to have a show back in the day.

Numerous shows over the years were held at Marina Village on Mission Bay, this one, circa 1991.

One of the more obscure locations was Kate Sessions Park with a beautiful view of Mission Bay. This show was circa 1996.

Here's a show in Solana Beach, just north of Del Mar, circa 1998.

So now it's time to pitch you locals. This years show is October 16 and is being held at Spanish Landing Park by the waterfront. Bring your car out and join me...if you don't want to enter a competitive class, just enter display. Be a part of history! Car placement at 7:00-9:00 AM. Here's the really important info...lunch (Tacos, Carne Asada, Chicken and Carnitas) will be available. How can you resist? Check your October Witness for details or for more info call Araceli Lopez at 619.787.3015 or Steve Lopez at 619.787.3290.

  1. I can't express my gratitude for your posting of the Fashion Valley photo. I've been searching for years for a clear shot of the mall's pre-remodel architecture, particularly the Robinson's dept store. Thank you. If you have any more, I'd be happy to purchase them from you.
