Growing in five years to the point that it occupies most of the carefully manicured Lacy Park in the glamorous San Rafael Hills village from which it takes its name, the San Marino Motor Classic has become a grand automotive affair that has generated $1.25 million for its charities.
In that same span, founder and chairman Aaron Weiss has accomplished the near impossible — a Classic Car Club of America Grand Classic concours surrounded by classes of enthusiast-favotite marques, some rare and some simply fascinating curiosities. Every class is filled with well-prepared automobiles and the field offers exhibitors and spectators alike a stress-free atmosphere awash with smiles and friendly greetings.
And there’s a bonus: The surrounding woods provide for shaded displays and leaf-covered viewing for spectators.
