LCOC members converged on Palm Springs from as far away as Massachusetts, New Jersey, Indiana and Washington state to celebrate our collector car hobby and admire some gorgeous Lincolns and other vintage classics.
Centerpiece of the display was a stunning black 1959 Continental but also on view among others were a Pierce Arrow complete with its signature bowman with bow and arrow hood ornament, mid-century Kaiser, ’50s era Packard, several Studebakers and Chryslers, models, signs and vintage radios, a kaleidoscope of eye candy.

The meet events began with a delightful catered cocktail and hors d’ouvres event in a cozy setting while enjoying a private car collection not far from our HQ hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton, Palm Springs. Earlier in the day some early birds got a jump on mechanical judging while others of us tried to solve the mysteries of our a/c system in a technical briefing by Mike Steiner.

Our hotel hospitality suite, staffed ably by Kerry Roscoe, was a welcome oasis from the near triple digit heat. Some of us motored in from California and nearby states and were more than ready for a sandwich, drink and snack at the suite by the time we arrived.

Tomorrow we are off on–what else?—a driving tour of nearby Yucca Valley and Pioneertown.
