Little Cars in Pacific Grove

Peel Trident at The Little Car Show - Pacific Grove, August 14, 2014

Every August, hundreds of unique, antique, and highly collectible cars converge on the Monterey Bay. A series of car shows, races, auctions, and other car-centric events are scheduled this week, culminating in Annual Concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach on Sunday. I was lucky enough to learn at the last minute that The Tiny Car Show was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in Pacific Grove, so I took off as fast as I could to get there and admire as many tiny cars as possible.

This show features little vehicles, like Minis, Fiats, Messerschmidts, MGs, etc. I was all over it! It was so much fun just walking around admiring the cars, chatting with owners, and taking (a ton!) of photos.

This 1959 Morris Mini with wood trim was all tricked out, UK style.

It's impossible to deny that those minis are photogenic! Here's a list of other Monterey County auto events going on this week.

If the first photo of the micro bubble car (a Trident Peel) sparked your interest, check out this post I wrote featuring the retro auto section at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2008.

  1. That must have been so much fun and it made me think of the Jack's Toy video you shared a while ago. I hope Jack and his car are still doing well!

  2. I thought of him, too! Was wondering if I might see him there as people come from all over the country to show off their cars. There was only one Isetta there, though, and it was blue!
