Huntington Beach Concours Set for Aug. 1; Save the Date! @ Huntington Beach Central Park

The Huntington Beach Concours returns for 2021 at the same venue, Huntington Beach Central Park adjacent to the Central Library, but on a new date, Sunday August 1st.

Normally the concours is a two-day event but this year the customs show will be combined with the classics on the same day.

Over its 35-year history, the Huntington Beach Concours has grown to be one of the outstanding automotive events in Southern California. First staged in 1986, the Concours has its home on the picturesque lawns of Huntington Beach Central Park  at Talbert and Goldenwest. The  field of entrants includes the best domestic, British, European and Asian, vintage to current automobiles and motorcycles. There is truly something for everyone.

 

Be sure to register your Lincoln, Continental or Mark soon.  As in prior years driver classes and concours  vehicles  will be judged . And you can register just to display your vehicle and hang out with fellow car enthusiasts without the need for judging.  It is up to ypu.  Click here for easy online registration and payment of the $40 registration fee.

The eighth annual Lincoln Homecoming in August 2021 will feature two different car shows.  The first will be a virtual Lincoln car show, which will extend from now through July 28. It will have its own People’s Choice awards by decade, voted on by all persons registered for the virtual car show.The second event will be in person—the annual Homecoming at the Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan on August 12 – 15.  The Homecoming will also have People’s Choice awards, by decade.All Lincolns registered for the virtual car show will also be registered for the in-person car show for the $25 price; in effect, one registration for two car shows.  (Complete details on the virtual car show appear below.)

The theme of the 2021 Homecoming is “Marks Through the Ages,” which will recognize all Lincoln Continental Marks, from the first in 1940 to the Mark VIII.  Although Continental Marks will be the feature in 2021, Lincolns from all eras are welcome.  Four major Lincoln clubs will be represented–the Lincoln Owners Club, Lincoln-Zephyr Owners Club, Road Race Lincoln Register and Lincoln and Continental Owners Club.   However, one need not be a member of those Lincoln clubs to display a car at the annual Lincoln Homecoming or participate in the virtual car show.

2021 San Marino Motor Classic to be Held Aug. 22, 2021 @ Lacy Park
Aug 22 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
2021 San Marino Motor Classic to be Held Aug. 22, 2021 @ Lacy Park
The San Marino Motor Classic Board of Directors voted to change the date of next year’s event to August 22, 2021. The reason for the change of date is two-fold. First, the board did not want to reschedule the event as the June date neared if the COVID-19 restrictions be continued. Second, as a prerequisite to hosting the event, it is felt that a period of 6 months of “blue sky” must exist before the event so that everyone has confidence that the show will go on and can plan accordingly.

Thus, the Board of Directors and our major partners, Classic Car Club of America, The Ferrari Club of America – Southwest Region and Packards International have agreed that it would be in the best interests of the event to move the date to August 22, 2021. This will move the 6 month “blue sky” window back to March 1, 2021. Hopefully, by that date we will have a clear assessment of the requirements that our event must meet in order to obtain a permit from the City of San Marino and all will have a greater level of confidence that the show will go on and decide to support the event.

The new date falls the week after the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance and we hope that our car friends will look forward to extending Monterey Car Week to an additional weekend in sunny Southern California. Accommodations for the storage of cars and the parking of trailers and transporters will be available for those  bringing cars from the various events in Monterey. The weekend will start with our Symphony of Cars Gala on Saturday Evening August 21st and the San Marino Motor Classic on Sunday August 22, 2021.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to contact Aaron Weiss at 818-606-0638.
