LAPD VTAC Car Show & Pomona Swap Meet

I didn't do it. I swear. I was framed.
 This past weekend was a busy one for the California Car Cover crew and me. On Saturday I was at the LAPD Valley Traffic car show in Woodland Hills, Ca. I attended the show last year and had a good time, so California Car Cover returned again to support local law enforcement.

Early in the morning, the cars were parked and their owners started detailing before the crowd arrived. Our booth was right behind a local Dodge Challenger club and were happy to see a few California Car Dusters in use.

The show had a nice variety of classic cars, traditional rods and newer muscle cars.







There were quite a few Chevy Camaro vehicles past and present at the show. Hopefully I will see them and many more at our Camaro Car Show next weekend at California Car Cover.

The LAPD VTAC show is held at Warner Center Park in Woodland Hills, Ca. It has plenty of parking and shade for a large show. California Car Cover has been a supporter of the LAPD for many years, so we are happy to display at their car shows when possible.



Recognize this roadster? It is owned by good friend and customer John Wall. It was featured on last year's Father Day's catalog cover. Ralph Ray's cabriolet in the background was featured on the California Car Cover Gift Guide last year as well.



Once the sun came out people started showing up to enjoy the classic cars and local food trucks at the event. The park had plenty of space for everyone to have a nice afternoon in the park.

The LAPD had a few different departments on hand doing demonstrations to entertain all members of the family.



On Saturday night, my father and I went to Hollywood Hot Rods for the unveiling of the 1940 Ford that Troy Ladd and the HHR crew built for Street Rodder's Road Tour. The car is beautiful and once we are allowed to share photos with you, they will be posted here.

The next morning it was off to the Fairplex for the Pomona Swap Meet. Before the foot traffic started to pick up I had a chance to take some photos of the cool cars on display in the For Sale section.

Classic Buick.

Besides the cool classic cars on display, you can find just about anything automotive related at the Pomona Swap Meet. There are countless vendors at the show and here is a small sample of what you might find at the event.





California Car Cover is right on the main drag at the swap meet so the sales associates are busy helping customers with car cover questions all day long.



Another nice thing about being on the main road is that we get to see all the cars coming in and out of the show, so we have a chance to see a lot of cars without having to leave the booth.

Next weekend is the Camaro Show at California Car Cover, so check back here with news and notes from that event, plus coverage of my trip to the Ink & Iron Show in Long Beach, Ca on Sunday.
