When you mix a car show with an air show, motorcycle show, tractor show, county fair, music festival and some living history, do you get the coolest show on earth? You can decide for yourself April 26th at the Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show at the Half Moon Bay Airport about 20 miles south of San Francisco.

The Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show claims to be the “Biggest, baddest gathering of the world’s coolest cars.” The main attractions this year include an array of military aircraft —the P-38 Lightning, B-25 Bomber, P-51 Mustang, C-47 Skytrain and F-4 Corsair.

Attendees also can see a parade of one-of-a-kind vintage police cars, “dynojet” dynamometer engine-performance testing, world land-speed-record streamliners and hydroplanes, a special display of antique wooden boats, and a multitude of Ford Mustangs celebrating the iconic muscle cars’ 50th anniversary.

Show organizers promise an up-close look at antique horseless carriages and Ford Model T’s, fanciful touring and luxury cars, powerful sports cars, custom cars and street rods, muscle cars, vintage and modern era high-performance race cars, quirky art and pedal cars, modified street machines with cutting edge styles, exotic high-performance cars, stylish European cars, ultra cool low-riders, sporty compacts, modified imports with flashy graphics, fashionable hip-hop urban show cars, homebuilt kit cars, super-charged turbo cars and trucks, “green” technology/alternative fuel vehicles, streamliners, dragsters, funny cars, gassers, and jet cars.

For those not quite so interested in the various machines, there will be a zip line, bungee jump, mechanical bull ride, climbing wall, walk-on waterballs, henna tattoos, face painting and a remote-controlled NASCAR race track.

Food and drink options include a special Moorhead Ale microbrew from Half Moon Bay Brewing Company.

Admission is $25 for adults, $15 for children and free for those 10 and younger or 70 and older. Those wanting to show their vehicles can register online here.
