The 2016 Palm Springs Concours was held on October 15. This is the largest annual collector car event in the Palm Springs area, featuring extremely high quality cars, While several LCOC Western Region members attended the show. only three members participated with their cars. Bob Blevins showed his 1967 Thunderbird and John Burge and Mike Steiner showed two of their Cadillacs. The Lincolns shown here and on page 5 have non LCOC owners. There were also many other makes of interesting cars. This show, sponsored by Great Autos of Yesteryear, is held on the grounds of the Desert Princess Country Club in Cathedral City. It is a casual car show with more emphasis on people and having a good time than on 100 point correct cars and trophies.
This is a charity event, this year supporting Angels View which benefits children and adults with disabilities.
The green grounds of the country club and lush setting in the dry Palm Desert area are spectacular. There was plenty of room for the cars to be widely spread apart for viewing, picture taking and socializing.
As might be expected in the Palm Desert area in October, the weather was ideal, the attendance was excellent and many of the cars were awesome.
