SoCal National 2000

The National Show in May attracted approximately 50 superb Cadillacs, and two sharp LaSalles. Despite some unseasonably warm weather (average high in May is normally around 83 in the valleys, but it got up to 100+ on this particular day) the vintage machinery performed flawlessly.

It seems that things go in cycles. This year, two late V-16s—a 1938 towncar and a 1940 Touring Sedan—were among the rarely seen cars at the show, plus half a dozen sparkling 1947s (2 converts, two limousines, and a 62-sedan). Two freshly restored 1938 Sixty-Specials were also entered, Morgan Woodward's made it, but Richard Stanley's was a last minute scratch. It's always a treat to see one of these beauties, two would have been phenomenal--maybe next year.

Last year, a sensational line up of early 1950s convertibles were among the seldom seen Cadillacs on display, plus a 1966 limousine customized by Fleetwood for Cadillac's general manager at the time, Harold Warner.

Thanks to all the volunteers who got up early and made this show happen. Special thanks to Robert Robin, Danny and Sue Parinno, Craig Rice, Kipp Jaros, Frank Ormonde and son, and our three man audit team, Joel Shapiero, Julian Cangelosi, and Jerry Krumm. Your assistance is much appreciated.

The engraved brass plates for the lower portion of the show awards will be mailed soon. Plaques not picked up at the show are to be mailed next week. Many thanks to everyone who prepared and entered a car.
