The Classic Car Show will consist of more than 40 custom cars from across Southern California.

Pico Boulevard has been host to scores of auto businesses over the decades.

Trophies will be awarded in various classes and prizes will be raffled, including a sound system donated by Al’s Stereo.

Car Show and raffle proceeds will benefit the SaMoHi Athletic Department and the Cody Williams Recovery Fund (the Santa Monica High School linebacker who sustained serious spinal injuries in a game in September 2009).
