Roger Rohrdanz January 29, 2022 All Feature Vehicles

Last year Veterans Day fell on Monday, Nov. 11, 2013, which was also the day of the Surf City Veterans Day Car Show in Surf City, USA, aka Huntington Beach, California.

The beachside parking lot along Pacific Coast Highway was the picturesque site of the show, where cars started showing up as early as 7 a.m. and were still arriving by 10 a.m. The weather was clear, sunny and in the 70s, a near-perfect day for a car show.

All proceeds from the event went to benefit veterans wounded in combat during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

An all-steel, home-built ’38 Ford COE powered by a 460 Ford. The grille is from a 1941 Ford, headlights are Ford 1927 versions, and there’s a Silverado bed with 1938 Hudson rear fenders.

The Wall of Remembrance was displayed.
This pristine ’69 Buick Riviera is owned by Lou Decandido of Huntington Beach.

A very desirable ’69 Corvette features a 427 motor and dagger hood.

The power in this very clean ’29 Ford roadster pickup is a 1955 era 270 Offenhauser. Bob Anderson has had it for years and drives it everywhere.

This is an original, very rare ’70 Olds 442 W-30 belonging to John Lewis of Huntington Beach.
