Enjoy spectacular scenery while you attend all the great events during Monterey Car Week, including Worldwide Auctioneers’ Pacific Grove Auction on the Monterey Peninsula on Thursday, August 17th and The Little Car Show in Pacific Grove on Wednesday, August 16th!

In addition to all the exciting events held during Monterey Car Week, one of the best-loved of them is The Little Car Show held in Pacific Grove, the hometown of our upcoming Pacific Grove Auction on the Monterey Peninsula.

Known as “TLCS” for short, this wonderful event is always held on the Wednesday of Monterey’s Classic Car Week and caters to vehicles with engines under 1,600 cc. This year, it is slated for August 16. As stated by event organizer Charles Davis, “Scandinavian vehicles, collectively, are this year’s featured marques. Our “big change” for this year (and for the future) is that all entries must be at least 25 years old, meaning that this year’s entries must have been manufactured 1992 or prior.”

In the spirit of The Little Car Show, here are some outstanding small-displacement vehicles to  be offered by Worldwide Auctioneers at Pacific Grove that will be ideal future entries for The Little Car Show:
