Classic cars at the 16th Annual Gilmore Auto Heritage Show 2010 - Part one...

On Saturday June 5, 2010, not only would you have been able to see the cast from the South Pacific Musical at The Grove, but you'd also have been able to see the 16th Annual Gilmore Heritage Auto Show at the neighbouring Farmers Market.

The annual event celebrates the heritage of Gilmore Gas and its impact on the car culture of California and features around 100 vintage and classic American cars for visitors and car enthusiasts to enjoy.

I'm no car expert, but I can appreciate a fine looking car, especially when it's all gleaming under the Californian sunshine.

This Pontiac StarChief is probably one of my favourite cars on display, probably because for me it most evokes that 1950's American diner and drive-in generation.
