LCOC Lincolns Invited to Lincolns and Lattes Event at the Company’s Irvine, CA, Design Campus @ Lincoln Design Studio, Irvine Spectrum
Mar 11 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am

JIm’s 1964 convertible at the Design Studio for a photo shoot.

Ford Motor Company is inviting LCOC members and their cars to a special Lincolns and Lattes display at the Lincoln Design Campus, 3 Glen Bell Way, Irvine, on March 11 from 8 to 11 a.m. The display is focused on our 1978 and older Lincolns, but beautiful newer examples also are welcome. You won’t want to miss it! 

The morning meet-up is seeking Lincolns across the eras and is expected to attract as many as 300 vehicles of all brands from car clubs around Southern California. 

Advance registration is required. Contact Jim Ayres, LCOC event coordinator, at jayres01@ca.rr.com to register your car for the display.  If needed, overnight secure storage prior to the event is available.  Spectator parking for non-exhibit cars will be provided on site.

Kemal Curic

Besides our classic Lincolns, the Star and L100 concept vehicles introduced in 2022 by Lincoln Motor Company and featured at the Pebble Beach Concours, will be on view, and Kemal Curic, Director of Global Design for Lincoln and head of the Irvine Design Studio, will be on hand for the event. 

Curic was born in Europe, but always loved American brands–especially Mustangs and Continentals he would see in films as a youngster.His passion for cars and design only grew as he got older. Eventually, he left Europe and moved to Dearborn in 2010. He played a major role in the redesign of the Mustang in 2015, in the latest Lincoln Continental of 2017, and was the chief designer of the critically-acclaimed Lincoln Aviator. In an article in the Irvine Standard, Curic called the Irvine facility a “studio powerhouse.”

“I like the ’60s,” he says. “I like the convertibles. I like the coupes. They’re quite stunning when you see them in person, and to this day, we try to keep the exuberant proportions. If you look at today’s Aviator and Lincoln Navigator, they have the same ‘gesture’ – the proud front end and the low back end. We’ve evolved into where Lincoln came from.”

The very popular San Marino Motor Classic in which LCOC members have excelled over the years, returns for 2023 bigger and better than ever.  Click here for registration information.

Classes will be limited to ten cars with a maximum of eight judged entries, so enter early so that you will not be disappointed. June 30, 2023 is the deadline for entries.

It takes a lot of people to operate the San Marino Motor Classic. If you wish to volunteer, please call Aaron at 818-606-0638 or send him an email to flyingagrage@gmail.com. Your call or email will be responded to immediately.

Stay tuned for further developments!
