Galpin Car Show




Galpin Ford, based in the San Fernando Valley since 1946, is a world-renowned, award-winning automotive enterprise with ten franchises, along with Galpin Auto Sports (GAS), a full in-house customizing and aftermarket center; Galpin Rentals; the Horseless Carriage Restaurant, America’s first full-service, in-dealership restaurant; and Galpin Starbucks.

In just 6 years, the Galpin Car show has grown into one of the biggest car shows in the San Fernando Valley. On Sunday, October 7, 2018, over 1,000 cars were expected to be on display...and the Galpin Car Show didn't disappoint!

An early morning run north up to the San Fernando Valley took about 30 minutes, with a few other Shelby's in tow, we rolled into the show just before sunup.

Because Galpin Ford is a premier sponsor of the LA Shelby Club, Galpin was kind enough to provide special prime front row parking directly facing Roscoe Boulevard.































And Galpin Ford is no slouch when it comes to vintage Shelby cars in their extensive collection. Several Galpin Shelbys got out in the sunshine and fresh air, too...






Then, just for fun, here's a few other cool Americana cars, mostly, but not all Fords that came in for the Show...









Then there was this very unique rat rod that had some very clever detail adornments...








And, now in one of the Galpin front row showrooms...

Allen Grant's LOLA GT







More Shelbys in the Galpin showroom...




More Galpin collection, outside...

...for the off-roaders...




....the NASCAR crowd!



The drag lovers...





And back in the handsome showroom collection!





Then I ran across this Daytona Coupe in the Galpin Museum...


Whatta show! Can't wait until next year! Thanks, Galpin Ford for a fine show and sensational hosts! The LA Shelby Club greatly appreciates your kind support for the club and everything you do for car enthusiasts!
