On July 12 the Central Coast’s ‘Friendliest little car show’ was hosted at Laguna Lake Park with the 9th Annual Gathering of Friends All-European Car Show. The community of close-knit European automobile enthusiasts hang out, meets restoration customers, and talks shop. Some models look as if they’ve just rolled off the assembly line, while others still have the wear and tear of several generations to show with the historic plates. The Central Coast Region of the Porsche Club of America, in conjunction with the Calif. Central Coast 356 Porsche Club, put on the event to benefit the local programs of Camp Hapitok, Kiwanis Youth Fund and the Boy Scouts of America. Cars pictured here include Singer, Citroen, and an SS Jaguar models. Photos submitted by Herb Shoebridge.
