The piercing shriek of the alarm clock awakens me at 2:30am. It’s time to get up and head to the Pomona Swap Meet and Car Show. You’re probably asking yourself why I’m waking up at 2:30am to go to a car show – well, the Pomona Swap Meet is not your every day, run-of-the-mill swap meet. The Pomona Meet is the Hershey Car Show of the West Coast. There are thousands of cars and trucks of all vintages in attendance at this event. According to event officials, the swap meet and show areas of the grounds stretch 15 miles long, typically filled with over 4,000 vehicles for show or sale. Back to why I woke up at 2:30am – the show starts at 5am and ends at 2pm. No, that’s not a typo, this meet starts before some people have even gone to bed from the night before. Since I live in the Central Valley of California, Pomona is two and half hours away. Even being a devoted and passionate automotive enthusiast, I was still reluctant to get up that early in the morning. I dragged myself out of bed thinking “this event had better be good.” Read More

Autobild Releases Two New Sketches of Porsche Panamera

Autobild has released two new sketches of the Porsche Panamera that has been confirmed for 2009. In keeping with the trend that Mercedes-Benz started with the CLS, these sketches show a sedan that clearly is designed to look like an elongated Coupé rather than a traditional four-door. These sketches also show that the car will have a hatchback rear, similar to what is found on Nissan’s 350Z, and the Volkswagen D1 Concept from 1999. Autobild has always been the most accurate source for true to life sketches from concept to production.
