VCCA - Felix Chevrolet ALL Chevrolet Car Show - Sunday, May 29, 2011

This much anticipated show celebrated Chevrolet's 100th, Vintage Chevrolet Club of America's 50th, and Felix Chevrolet's 90th year and sold out of its 200 allotted months before the event.  Although it just so happened to land on the same Memorial Day weekend as the 30th Annual Cruisin' Nationals event in Santa Maria, there was plenty to look at.

Sometimes it's nice to take a look at classics built from the ground up to look as if they'd just been driven off the assembly line... with a few subtle modifications that is!

Felix Chevrolet off of Figueroa in Downtown L.A.  This place has been supplying the Greater Los Angeles area with Chevrolet's for the better part of 90 years- just a few years huh?

I know it's not a Chevy but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to snap a pic of this killer Merc- hadn't seen this one around these parts before.

Here it is from the tail end!  Nice!

Bagged '49-'53 Chevrolet P/U  

Gotta love the 1.5" white wall / astro-supreme combo!

Now here's an engine compartment you can eat out of!  Super clean straight six with a 2-2 set up, Offenhauser intake, Fenton headers and not a drop of oil on the block.

Not sure who manufactured this green and cream two-wheeler but it's cool nonetheless.

Another super cool/ clean straight six equipped with single carb, functioning oil-bath filter- wiper fluid resevoir... and braided hoses?!

Same motor from the other side... Nice plug wires!

1937 Chevrolet Sedan Bomb!

Front ends for days!

1938 Chevrolet Coupe

The super mean and mellow green machine! 1948 Chevrolet Delivery

1948 Chevrolet Coupe equipped with window A/C and bug screen!  Hadn't seen one of those before.

Probably reminiscent of what the Felix lot looked like in '54... minus the apartment complex blanketing the background

Super clean '54 Bel Air Hard Top

1953 Chevrolet Hard Top with Sombrero hub caps

This one didn't quite make it into the show but found close enough parking.  Oops!  You're parked in a red zone!

A couple more beauties parked just outside of the lot.

That's All Folks!


  1. Chevrolet first used the "bowtie emblem" logo in 1913. It may have been designed from wallpaper Durant once saw in a French hotel. More recent research by historian Ken Kaufmann presents a case that the logo is based upon a logo for "Coalettes". Others claim that the design was a stylized Swiss cross, in honor of the homeland of Chevrolet's parents.
