An amphibious vehicle, a superhero's sports car and a 1931 Rolls-Royce powered by an aircraft engine are just a few of the vintage and dealer-selected vehicles that will line up at Corona del Mar State Beach on Sunday for the annual Coastline Car Classic.
Now in its seventh year, the event is expected to draw even greater numbers than last year's turnout of 2,500 spectators, said Corona del Mar Chamber of Commerce President Linda Leonhard.
"What makes this show unique is that it is right on the beach, and it really does have something for everyone," she said.
There will be live music and children's activities. The car buffs can feast their eyes on 120 European and American classics, exotic sports cars and custom vehicles, Leonhard said.
"It's so exciting," Leonhard said. "When the cars arrive at 7 a.m., you see so many types of cars from super exotic to old vintage carriage cars. They're all revving their engines and adding to this feeling of exhilaration."
