It took a last-minute venue change but the Desert Classic Car Association pivoted on a dime recently to move their annual show from the Palm Springs Air Museum to the Ritz Carlton, Rancho Mirage, barely a week before the scheduled event. 2020 has been a rough year for live exhibitions in general and car shows in particular, but the DCCA beat the COVID odds to hold a very successful live event.
The elegant hillside Ritz Carlton proved to be an ideal venue. Gracious patio dining was a popular option.
LCOC members were part of the fun. George Dray proudly displayed his 1960 Continental convertible and Tom Lehn was on hand with his customized 1963 convertible. A vintage 1941 Continental delighted attendees and a striking red 1978 Town Coupe was a highlight.
Despite the location change about 100 cars came including Lincolns. T’birds and an eclectic mix of classics and customs ranging from VWs to Lamboghinis,, Packards, European sports cars and even a one-of-a-kind Glaspar. There was even a 1956 Jaguar once owned by the late quiz show host Alex Trebec. All in all, it was an enjoyable event with a relaxed vibe in an ideal setting. Bavo DCCA!
