Memory lane on Pier Plaza in Hermosa Beach

1946 Studebaker Champion, with “302 Ford Running Gear,” owned by Jim McGill.

1964 Dodge Dart, owned by auto restorer and former Indy 500 driver Phillip Caliva, auto restorer.

“After Hermosa, there’s only Heaven,” was the fitting T-shirt slogan for the 23rd Annual Hermosa Beach Endless Summer Car Show on Pier Plaza on Saturday. The slogan was fitting given the warm weather, and the warm reminiscing about the days when cars on display were daily drivers. 

1960 Lincoln Continental Mark V, Terre Verde Green, with a Killarney Green interior. Named Veronica by owner and Endless Summer organizer David Freedman.

1929 Packard 6-45 Dietrich Dual Cowl Phaeton. Straight 8, 106 horsepower engine. Top speed 70 mph. Owned by Dana Graham
