It’s exhausting work

On the Wednesday before Big Pebble, The Little Car Show takes over Pacific Grove.

The cars have to be less than 1600 ccs and more than 25 years old. There are exceptions but this ain’t Pebble so no one gets riled up about rules infractions. Everyone is just here to have fun and celebrate the joy of small.

There was a Peel Trident, for instance, a three-wheeled claustrophobic bubble car that looks a little like a submarine. There was Robert Lewis’ three-wheeled rotary-powered 1984 Triton Aerocar 2 that once belonged to Tom Monaghan and was painted up in Domino’s Pizza livery just like Little Al’s IndyCar. There was Wild Bill’s (yes, the same guy from Wild Bill’s Tattoo in Roseville, next Tattoo-A-Thon Feb. 22!) homemade contraption that looked like a lot of fun. There were Porsche 356s, a beautiful BMW 1600 GT with body by Frua, lots of MGAs, lots of Panhards, one or two Type 2 VW vans, and on and on. It was all fun.

This was the tenth year of The Little Car Show on Lighthouse Ave. and there were 110 cars in all, plus a few of those little Honda Trail 70s from the ‘70s. It all benefitted the Pacific Grove Library, Pacific Grove Youth Center, and the Veterans’ Transisiton Center. Make plans to get here early next year to check this out.
