Those of us in Southern California are fortunate to be surrounded by car culture year round, but the shows and events really pick up in the summer. I get an invite to at least a few shows every week just around my little LA/Ventura County Line area. Most of the events are more geared towards the classics (drivers and cars) but still a fun way to spend a few hours during the weekend. I've taken the Lotus to some pretty low-brow/rat-rod type hangouts and everyone still thinks it's cool.

I'll make an effort to sort through the show flyers and post them up here and hopefully others will do the same. Big shows that are geared towards our cars probably deserve their own threads, but I'll start building the list of a bunch of others.

(don't know if this fits better here or in the CA region - so mods, feel free to relocate it)

Murphy Auto Museum Oxnard

5/30/14 American Graffiti Drive in Movie Night.

The Murphy is putting on a bunch of events on Friday nights. If you haven't been to the Murphy before, it's a cool little museum. So the free museum admission at some of the events might make them worth the drive :shrug:

Their schedule is here: The Murphy Auto Museum-Upcoming Exhibits & Events

7/12/14 MB2 Raceway Newbury Park

This one is cool as it benefits the Wounded Warrior Project and has Go Karts.
Saturday July 12 4pm-10pm.
This would be fun to get a bunch of Lotus owners to show up all the muscle car guys on the kart track.

Beverly Hills car show in Franklin Park 6/29

All ready posted in another thread but this show should be a lot of fun, it is in Franklin Park, Beverly Hills, I often see Jay Leno driving his older cars around the lake there. I registered 2 cars, so far no other Lotus except Franks monster RS211. Admission and visitor parking is free but to be in the actual show is $10 and it is filling up pretty fast.

Burbank July 26th



The 3rd Annual Downtown Burbank Car Classic

Presented by Downtown Burbank Partnership, a non-profit organization, the event is an exciting showcase for restored and pre-1974 sports cars and bikes, exotics, cruisers and hot rods, from Ferraris, Porsches and Cadillacs to custom Mustangs, Camaros and Harleys.

In tune with Downtown Burbank’s location in the heart of the entertainment industry, vehicles with a “Hollywood” twist are especially welcome, such as those appearing in film or television, or having a distinguished history of celebrity ownership.

The event will happen rain or shine.

Mad Men Modernism Party - Murphy Oxnard, CA July 19th



Come celebrate Modernism at The Murphy Auto Museum. We’ll have historically significant cars on display from this mid century era as well as contemporary furniture and displays. Our beautiful, restored and factory correct Studebaker Avanti's, a few beautiful Lincoln’s from the late 1950s, a Holiday House mobile mansion, the holy grail of contemporary design. Furniture and art will also be on display.

We have two fabulous events coinciding with the Modernism Exhibit. An Airstream Exhibit happening Saturday July 19, 9am-4pm. During this show peer into several new 2014 and 2015 Airstream trailers and motorhomes. Airstream has been making trailers since 1936 and their rich history and iconic design is timeless. See for yourself!

That night, July 19, from 6pm-10pm we are throwing a Mad Men Modernism Party. Admission is $10.00 per person per event, but if you came to and paid for the Airstream Exhibit, get a wristband and you can get in FREE to the Modernism party that night! This can't miss event re-creates the Mad Men inspired chic-party atmosphere of a mid-1950s party, complete with mid-century modern furniture, art show, vintage cars and more. Remember to dress in your 50s or 60s vintage best and get ready to party, retro style!

Best of France and Italy 11/2/14 Van Nuys

The Best of France and Italy show has a terrible website that looks like it was made in about 15 minutes, but I imagine the cars will be much more impressive.

It's at the big park by the Balboa Golf Course. There will be food and a swap meet as well.

9am to 4pm
