SoCal’s Galpin Motors Hosts 7th Annual Car Show, Oct. 7
One of the largest Ford dealers around is set to welcome 1,000 vehicles to its lot at popular fall event.
For many around the United States, fall has arrived. Up in New England, the leaves are already going from green to spectacular shades of red, orange, and gold. In the Pacific Northwest, the gray days and soft rains will soon replenish the snow caps of the Cascades and Olympics. And of course, baseball is winding down, while college football and the NFL are in full swing, with basketball not far behind.
If you’re in Los Angeles, though, fall doesn’t truly begin until Galpin Motors throws its annual car show. Should you be in town this year on Sunday, October 7, all you need to do is head 30 minutes northwest to North Hills, California, the home of Galpin Ford, to experience all the seventh edition of the Galpin Car Show has to offer.
From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., you’ll see 1,000 vehicles take over the entirety of the Galpin Ford campus, ranging from Shelby Mustangs and Ford GTs, to plenty of classic and modern Ford trucks, not to mention all of the other cars and trucks set to come down to Galpin. There will also be lots of food and beverages, a kids zone, and live music from two of L.A.’s biggest radio stations, KROQ-FM and KRTH-FM.
There will be a few celebrity cars at the show, as well, such as Metallica frontman James Hetfield’s custom Jaguar, and the famed lowrider “Gypsy Rose.” And if your kids need an artistic outlet, they can express themselves on the blank canvas of a Ford F-150. Meanwhile, if you want to be among the 1,000 vehicles on display, all you need to do pre-register on the Galpin Ford Car Show page.
Admission is free for one and all. The festivities are centered around Galpin Ford, located at 15505 Roscoe Boulevard in North Hills.
