'Women ‘n Wheels' announced for LA Classic Auto Show
Indy legend Lyn St James joins over 1000 cars, 70 years of Porsche display and more at the Los Angeles show on the first weekend of March
The Classic Auto Show has announced a special ‘Women ‘n Wheels’ showcase feature at its 2018 exhibition, including a live vehicle build and appearances from high profile women in the industry.
Taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on March 2-4, the Classic Auto Show will feature over 1000 collector cars from 65 car clubs.
A feature dedicated to women in the automotive sector has been organised by the Automobile Driving Museum and is the first of its kind at the show.
As part of the stand, former racing driver Lyn St James – one of only nine women ever to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 – will make an appearance. She also twice won her class at the 24 Hours of Daytona and once in the Sebring 12 Hours.
St James will be joined by female automotive advice website AskPatty chief executive officer Jody DeVere and the All Girls Garage crew.
Special car exhibits will include Bogi Lateiner’s ‘Chevy Montage’ all-female build and Kristin Cline who will also work on her 1960 Ford Falcon in front of a live audience.
The show will also feature a celebration of Porsche’s 70th anniversary with the Petersen Automotive Museum showcasing significant cars from the company’s history. In addition, ‘Urban Outlaw’ and Porsche aficionado Magnus Walker will attend.
A section dedicated lowriders will include the 1964 Chevrolet Impala nicknamed ‘Gypsy Rose’, the world’s most famous lowrider. Renowned car collector Bruce Meyer will also exhibit three hot rods.
Classic Japanese cars and a Citroën display will appear at the 2018 show for the first time in its history.
Senior vice president of the show’s production company, Michael Carlucci said: ‘Given the passion that California enthusiasts have for vehicles from all generations, makes and models, we felt the development of special exhibits that target these specific tastes was a crucial step in our rapid expansion.
‘These new displays will truly speak to the passions of true enthusiasts. There will be something for everyone – from the brass era to modern exotics and everything in between.’
