THE 16TH ANNUAL DR. GEORGE CHARITY CAR SHOW, INDIAN WELLS, CA FEBRUARY 10, 2018

The 16th Annual Dr. George Show, Indian Wells, CA Feb. 10, 2018.

This show is sponsored by the Palm Spring Cruisin’ Association (PSCA) to benefit the Desert Cancer Foundation.  Last year PSCA was able to donate $82,000 to the Foundation.  These funds will help make it possible for a lot of folks to get the care and treatment they need.

No matter your taste in vehicles,  you’ll find it at The Dr. George Show.

The not-so-shiny:

Perhaps the toughest truck ever built:

We’ve heard of skeletons in the closet – but skeletons in the grille?

In addition to the 1,000 vehicles at the show there were other things going on including Car Talk hosted by Bob Beck with Overhaulin’ crew and friends, Andreas Somogyi.  Bob Beck also hosted a Car Talk with Peter Brock, famed designer of the 1963 Corvette and the Shelby Daytona Coupe, Alan Grant, former Shelby employee and driver of a world champion Daytona Coupe, and Jim McGee, Formula 1 and Indy Car Hall of Fame Crew Chief.  From left to right are Brock, Grant and McGee.

Below is Jim McGee’s Model A – the license plate reads “1 Indy 4X”.

 

This Cobra is owned by Alan Grant.

This nifty panel, outfitted with drawers patterned after a Helms Bakery truck, was used to sell donuts for a donation to benefit veterans.  (Yum – good donuts).

And speaking of veterans –  the Palm Springs Air Museum did a flyover with the C-47 Skytrain military transport which was used by the U.S. Army Air Force and the U.S. Navy during World War II.

A group of students from Santa Ynez High School brought a dirt track racer they built and raced.  These students also race autocross at the Camarillo Airport.  Abraham, below, will be driving the autocross car.  The students will be  hosting The 5th Annual Pirate Garage Car Show on March 17, 2018 at the Santa Ynez High School.

A lot of future car enthusiasts were taking in the sights and Emery (left) and Abigail were amongst the cutest.

Vic Slick was on hand and kept the music playing all day.  When The Wanderer by Dion was played, these two couldn’t help but dance.

 

This 1956 Chevrolet Nomad was Best of Show.

 

An outstanding and rare Hupmobile was selected as Best of Show Specialty Car.

This motorcycle had a fantastic and unique Biblical themed paint job:

 

This race car was part of the exhibit of the Jim McGee and Alan Grant cars.
