1956 Austin-Healey 100M Le Mans
This gorgeous 1956 Austin-Healey 100M Le Mans was a highlight of the British contingent.

There’s no time like summer for car shows, and the San Luis Obispo Concours is one of the best on the Central Coast. Benefiting Hospice of San Luis Obispo, the show attracts a fantastic and eclectic group of automobiles that are a real treat to see. All the folks at Hospice and the show volunteers go out of their way every year to ensure the event is a success. So it was no big surprise that this year’s show featured a wide variety of amazing local cars as well cars from all over the state. This show is a great reminder of how active the car community is in our little neck of the woods. The diverse selection of cars, motorcycles, and vintage trailers was something to behold. There was something for just about every kind of motoring enthusiast. One of the coolest vehicles on display was a GM Futureliner that was rescued from the scrap pile and wonderfully restored into a transporter.

The most interesting entry into this year’s show was this towering 1939 GM Futureliner.

Our very own Phil Honer chose this event to unveil his immaculately restored 1967 Jaguar E-Type, the result of a decade-long labor of love. Phil’s efforts were rewarded with not only a First in Class award, but Best Jaguar as well.
