Los Angeles event also features Jay Leno & wrestling legend Bill Goldberg, plus ‘Grease Girl’ Kristin Cline working on her Ford Falcon.

Vintage Ford F-100s and America’s longstanding love of trucks take the spotlight at the 2018 Classic Auto Show, happening March 2-4 on two full floors of the Los Angeles Convention Center in Downtown L.A. As part of the new “Vintage Jeep/4×4 Pavilion” exhibit, the Ford F-100s will be displayed alongside Chevrolet C10s, Dodge Power Wagons, and Jeeps dating back as far as 80 years.

Introduced in 1953, the Ford F-100 was the second generation of F series; production stopped on the F-100 in 1984. Ford lovers will also get the chance to watch rockabilly “Grease Girl” Kristin Cline working on her ’60 Ford Falcon in front of a live audience at the event. The “Women ‘n Wheels” exhibit also features appearances by motorsports legend Lyn St. James and All Girls Garage crew Bogi Lateiner and Rachel DeBarros.

“Given the passion that California enthusiasts have for vehicles from all generations, makes and models, we felt the development of special exhibits that target these specific tastes was a crucial step in our rapid expansion,” says Michael Carlucci, the show’s producer. “These new displays will truly speak to the passions of true enthusiasts. There will be something for everyone — from the brass era to modern exotics and everything in between.”
