Our man on the Left Coast, Jim Palam, spends a fun day at a laid-back car show that raises money for a worthy cause.
Some 90 miles North of Santa Barbara, CA is the bucolic Madonna Inn Meadows, a lakeside park in San Luis Obispo that hosts an annual Concours to benefit the local Hospice. Not your typical “stuffy” high-end Concours, the event is a cross between a traditional Concours and friendly car club show. Last Sunday was a picture-perfect day and I couldn’t think of a better destination to go cruising in my restored Triumph TR6.
The first Morgan “3W” delivered to California. It’s a 2012 model SS V-Twin.
A gorgeous and sleek, deep-rose-colored ’96 Porsche Carrera 4S.
Beautifully restored vintage ‘67 T120 Triumph Bonneville.
Bright silver ‘99 Anniversary Edition Mini.
Curvy ‘66 Mark X Jag that looks like a big white cloud!
Larry and Barbara Long’s wonderfully preserved ‘33 MG J2.
