Southern California's premiere classic Porsche event, Luftgekuhlt #4, took place this past Sunday in San Pedro, Ca. Hundreds of air cooled Porsche vehicles took over warehouse #10 at the Port of Los Angeles. Attendees were treated to an incredible display of historic and notable Porsche vehicles, plus the surrounding parking lots were filled with fine examples of Porsche autos.
The most eye catching and fascinating exhibit was the collaboration with Pirelli. This exhibition space feature historic Pirelli artwork displayed amongst notable Porsche production cars. Other vehicles on display inside were recent award winning restorations and reknowned racing vehicles.
Even outside of the main show there was plenty of fine Porsche craftsmanship on display. For those car owners unable to have their Porsche inside the main gates, the preferred parking lot showcased generation after generation of vehicles.
Each year, the Luftgekuhlt team raises the bar for a unique event experience. We will see what the group can come up with 2018.

This passed Saturday was a new event at California Car Cover. Our friends at the LA Aircooled Volkswagen Club were looking for a place to have an inaugural show and shine car show. Our facility was available this past weekend, so we let a group of classic VW owners take over our parking lot and lawn for a few hours to host the Seis De Mayo Car Show.
Classic Beetles and buses started arriving early at CCC well before the 8am roll in time. Attendees were greeted with goodie bags and donuts courtest of LA Air Cooled.

Thank you to Kurt and everyone at LA Aircooled for hosting a great event at California Car Cover. Our customers really enjoyed seeing the custom and restored VWs at our store. Hopefully, there will be some bigger and better events in the future together.
