The San Marino Motor Classic: Design in Motion was staged on June 14, 2015 at Lacy Park in San Marino, California. Over 300 cars were displayed on the lawns of the beautiful 30-acre park, all gathered for the public to enjoy and share their beauty and history.
The San Marino Motor Classic 2015 featured 34 classes of cars, which included examples from Ferrari, Porsche, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, Packard, Cadillac, Jaguar, Bugatti, Hispano-Suiza and Rolls-Royce.
“We’re entering our fifth year of putting on a solid car show,” said Aaron Weiss, event co-founder and co-chair. “We produce a standout spectacle not only for car enthusiasts, but for our benefiting charities. Whether it’s pre-war, post-war, hot rods — even motorcycles — we have a great show for everyone to enjoy.”
