The San Marino Motor Classic will return for year No. 11 on Sunday, Aug. 28.
The automobile event will be held in Lacy Park from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., according to event founder Aaron Weiss and fellow organizers.
The San Marino Motor Classic will have almost 500 mint-condition collector cars on view throughout the day with an awards ceremony beginning at 1:30 p.m.
“I would love to see the community come out and support this event once again,” Weiss said. “We think this is an excellent event for the San Marino community. It really is not a car show, it is a community event and it is getting more established every year.”
The event’s three main beneficiaries are Pasadena Humane, the Cancer Support Community Pasadena and the Rotary Club of San Marino, which disburses its monies to more than 20 charities.
The San Marino Motor Classic has also supported improvements at Lacy Park.
“The city of San Marino has been very helpful in helping us get organized,” said Weiss. “They have done a top-notch job in getting things organized for this year’s event.”
The car selection committee has voted to host two new classes at the 2022 San Marino Motor Classic: Hot Rods — 1932 Ford, celebrating the 90th anniversary of the 1932 Ford and its popularity as a platform for hot rods, and Porsche 356 Outlaw — a scion of the car collecting community.
