Lots of Classic Cars at the Gilmore Heritage Auto Show and Pomona Swap Meet

Classic cars lined up at the Farmer's Market in Los Angeles for the annual Gilmore Heritage Auto Show.

It was another car show filled weekend in Southern California for the California Car Cover Crew. We could not make it to all the great events taking place this past weekend, but we were able to attend the Gilmore Heritage Auto Show and Pomona Swap Meet.

The Gilmore Heritage show takes place at the landmark Farmer's Market in Los Angeles. It is not a huge event as only about 100 cars can participate due to space and parking limitations at the Farmer's Market. But what it lacks in size, the Gilmore Heritage Auto Show makes up for in variety of cars and a unique location for a car show.

Car fill the streets and sidewalks that run through the famed Farmer's Market. With the Gilmore family ties to Southern California, and this neighborhood in particular, it is the ideal setting for a classic car meet.

1956 Ford Thunderbird


The Gilmore Adobe is open to the public during the show and some vintage Gilmore vehicles and sprint cars are always on display. The car show is always a hit with attendees because of its location. Right in the heart of the Farmer's Market there is a ton of entertainment options for participants there and at the neighboring Grove shopping center.

1932 Chrysler

There was no rest for the California Car Cover Crew as bright and early the next morning we were off to the Pomona Fairplex for the June installment of the Pomona Swap Meet. It was another crowded day at the fairplex as people and cars were cruising the facility all day. It took a few hours for the haze to where off, but as soon as the sun came out, so did the people.

Thank you to everyone that stopped by the California Car Cover booth on Sunday at the Pomona Swap Meet. We will be back there in August when we return from our annual summer road trip to all the major classic car shows around the country.
