Default Classic Auto Show at Orange County Fair Grounds



I attended the Classic Auto Show at Orange County Fair Grounds today and displayed my Pantera there, Huge turnout and a nice selection of beautiful cars/ It continues tomorrow but I'm not able to return. Any other southern Californians attend? I did see two Jaguars, a beautiful X100 XK8 in "as new" condition with 117,000 miles and a hot rodded XKE coupe. Anybody going tomorrow?

Ted, your Pantera should top of the bill!
I'm a little envious of you guys having access to many shows.

Hot rodding an XKE is just not my cup of tea, though to each his own.

That XKE's bonnet is a hoodeous monstrosity!

I'm with you there and also don't go for the side exhaust. I don't mind hot rod changes to the E-type but prefer that they be done under the bonnet. But every one's taste is difference so that's what makes the world go around.

I doubt that anyone actually likes that hideous hood. It simply doesn't work with the rest of the car.

Looks like that mustang (66?) next to the e-type had some custom body work as well. Maybe this was the customizers row at the show.

I wasn't crazy about the "hot rodding' of the XKE either, but it was the only Jag "in town," so I snapped the picture. It, at least, was painted flawlessly.

BTW your PantTearer takes my breath away no matter how many times I see it. I have to say to my generation, that was the most beautiful car ever made. The 308 second.

Queen and Country,
I won't disagree with you. I think of all the Italian wedge design cars of the 1970s, the Pantera had the best dimensions, styling, and aggressive stance of any of them. If the Miura didn't have that triiangular panel right behind the door and in front of the rear quarter, I'd rank it as high, but that break ruins the profile for me.

Love the 308 as well. Also a smooth transition from the back of the door to the rear quarter, and a gorgeous, sensual body. One of Ferraris' greatest designs imho.

Love the 308 as well. Except for that US bumper!
