Do you have a vintage, classic car that you love showing off? The Annual Floral Park Home & Garden Tour features a display of classic, vintage cars held in conjunction with the Tour. Open to Pre-1980 Classic/Vintage Automobiles and Motorcycles in very good condition.
In addition to the vintage cars, the 2-day event, April 27 and 28, is also one of the best home and garden tours in Southern California. The Floral Park neighborhood of Santa Ana is famed for its beautiful and unique mid-20th century homes and gardens. The event also features food, street vendors, demonstrations and other activities of interest.

You won’t want to miss this tour of rare restored cars, motorcycles, trucks, automotive memorabilia and more! We have been invited to view the private collection of Kip Cyprus. He owns many beautiful automotive treasures and has been gracious enough to let us come and view. Even if you have seen Kip’s artifacts before, the collection is in a new location and more surprises are in store. You will be wowed by so much eye candy!
One of Kip’s best displays is a gorgeous black 1961 Lincoln Continental convertible that has been undergoing restoration. With luck, it may be back from paint and ready for view during our tour. It was beautiful before but with its mechanical and cosmetic updating, this is one of the finest examples in California—and maybe in the nation— of this iconic Lincoln model that Hemmings Motor News called one of the 10 best American designs ever.
We will be meeting at 10:30 a.m. for the tour and then afterwards for lunch at nearby Don Ramon’s, 16961 Goldenwest, in Huntington Beach,
We will be joining our friends from the Thunderbirds of Southern California for the tour and lunch.
RSVP a must by 4/21/19! Anita Nunez 714-992-1658 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Come celebrate Cinco de Mayo with your friends from LCOC and aid a good cause at the same time!
Help the Altadena Guild to hold a classic car show and tour of 5 fabulous mid-century homes and 3 exquisite gardens on Sunday May 5th, 2019. There also will be live entertainment, plein air market, bakery, and Expanded Sidecar Cafe. The sponsors are parking 5 period correct vehicles at the homes or nearby on a closed street for show. Yours can be one of them, and volunteer car owners will receive a free admission to the tour, normally $35 or more! The Guild has been sponsoring this event in historic Altadena for more than 65 years and has donated thousands of dollars to charities. This year’s tour theme is “Marvelous Midwick Drive”.
Preferred cars are between 1955 and 1965, but a year or two newer or older would be OK. They don’t have to be in concours condition but should be representative of what the homeowners might have driven at the time.
LCOC’s own Glenn Gordon is coordinating the car registration efforts. If you would like to volunteer your beautiful mid-century Lincoln or other fine car for this event, please contact Glenn at email@example.com. You can also reach him at 213-447-7081. Cars will need to be in place by 9 a.m. and remain until 4 p.m.
The benefiting charities include the Huntington Medical Research Institutes and Huntington Hospital’s Constance G. Zahorik Appearance Center as well as the Altadena Guild Community Service Scholarship. For more information contact Glenn or click here.
This year marks the 25th Anniversary of one of Southern California’s most eclectic car shows, the Muckenthaler Car Festival May 18 and 19. This annual Fullerton, CA event promises to be bigger and better than ever. In recent years inclusion of vintage trailers has significantly added to the show’s ambiance. This year is no exception. The two-day festival will feature Hot Rods and Customs on Saturday the 18th and Concours d’Elegance vehicles on Sunday the 19th with vintage travel trailers on display both days.
The Muckenthaler Motor Car committee has dedicated more than 20 years to enriching and improving the lives of children from arts and education programs through the Muck Foundation. It is the strong relationship between this committee and the Center that make the Motor Car Festival possible. The committee is proud to play a key role and contribute their time and energy to the premier fundraiser of the year.
First conducted in 1994, the Muckenthaler Motor Car Festival features beautiful and rare automobiles, displayed on the 8 rolling acres of lush lawn and aged trees of the Muckenthaler Mansion. The annual affair has brought in thousands of dollars for charity and is looking to the future to increase its success and continue its generous tradition.
The Muckenthaler Motor Car Festival is an invitation only event dedicated to preserving the rich heritage of Southern California’s automotive history. For consideration of your vehicle click here for a registration application. Then click here to pay online or purchase event tickets. Registration costs vary depending on the vehicle involved. Motorcyles are $30 and cars or trailers are $60. All applications must be submitted by May 10 for judged vehicles.
Tickets for the Saturday event are $5 per person and $10 per person for the Sunday Concours.
Come enjoy the true classics of the automotive and travel trailer industries spread out over eight rolling acres of tree-lined lawns. Approved concours travel trailers will be allowed to set up Friday afternoon the 17th and camp Friday and Saturday night, judging will be Sunday.

The Huntington Beach Concours d’Elegance is now in its 34th year and once again LCOC will be an important presence at the event. Registration is now open. The 2-day event begins on Saturday June 1 with the Rod and Custom Show and continues on Sunday June 2 with the Concours Car and Motorcycle Show, where LCOC has been a cherished participant for many years. Registration for the show will be $40, with a $10 admission for spectators with children under 16 free with an adult. For 2019 our friends from the Thunderbirds of Southern California will hold a reciprocal “People’s Choice” award for their favorite Lincoln or Continental/Zephyr, while our members will select their favorite Thunderbird.
Traditionally, this event has been a time for LCOC members to gather and socialize with other members with anywhere from 15 to 20 LCOC cars on display. Our collector cars are collocated in a beautiful shaded area near a scenic pond that is perfect for photos. The day usually kicks off with coffee and donuts for our exhibitors and may end with one of the many 1st, 2nd or 3rd place awards granted by the show committee.

The beautiful and historic Hudson River Valley is the site for the 2019 LCOC Eastern National Meet, Sept. 19-22.
You will want to be sure to attend this year’s meet based in Dutchess County, New York. The Hudson Valley region is near New York City and is rich in beautiful scenery, iconic estates, presidential homes, a renowned culinary school, and numerous other interesting historic sites.
But you must act quickly to reserve your room—-and this is no marketing hype. One hotel being used by our group is already sold out for those dates.
The Holiday Inn Express, Poughkeepsie, has rooms available for LCOC at our group rste but these are selling out quickly also. Best to call the hotel directly at 845-473-1151 and speak with the Sales Manager, to request rooms at the LCOC special rate. The group code is LCO.
More information is available about the meet itself on the national LCOC Website where meet registration forms and other info will be posted soon.
