An all new Car Show is coming to Malibu and I’m super excited to be bringing it to Gladstone’s at Sunset and PCH. Bring your ride, your squeeze, your kids and your smiles every 3rd Sunday from 7:00-9:00am.
About 2 months ago, my friends and I met with owner and ex-Mayor Richard Riordan with the idea of doing a new Car Show at this world renowned restaurant. (It didn’t take long to get the thumbs up as the Mayor is a huge car guy.)
Starting this Sunday, May 15th, I’ll be headlining this epic WHEELS AND WAVES show with some serious automotive contraptions. Basically a get-together like my other show, Malibu Cars & Coffee, only this one will happen in the massive parking lot at Gladstone’s from 7am until 9am. They’ll be serving coffee and treats and the Mayor will be making an appearance in Clark Gable’s original red Packard, courtesy of The Automobile Driving Museum in El Segundo. We’ll have a few other Packards, the infamous Rodriguez Hot Rod and I’ll be displaying Mercedes new AMG GT. It’s gonna be frikkin’ awesome!
This is the official invite for all you carpeeps, whether you’ve got an Exotic, Classic, Musclecar, RatRod, Truck, Euro, Race Car, Fire Engine, Tractor, Humvee, Scooter or bicycle, you’re welcome to come and share it with the world. And if you don’t have a cool car, then just come anyway. It’s a massive lot with room for 500 and we’re ready for whatever shows up.
BIG THANKS to Andy Cohen for words of wisdom, Melea Morris at Gladstones and my team of Fireballers who’ll be there to make sure you have a good time. There will be free Hot Wheels to the first 100 cars and insane photo ops with your cars and everyone else’s. Shoot, Share and have fun.
But the real peeps I need to thank are all you MPGers. For 4 years I’ve been writing RIDE OF THE WEEK in Malibu and shooting my show featuring you and a lot of your cars and now we get to have fun every Sunday. 1st Sunday is the VINTAGE SHOW at Trancas, the 2nd and 4th Sunday is Malibu Cars & Coffee, and now the 3rd Sunday is at Gladstones. I’m so grateful to be doing this in my favorite town and getting a chance to meet and hang with all of you. A true blessing of horsepower.
It’s on… No DR. NO’S allowed. Just good attitudes, appreciation for beauty and a sincere desire to share the love of your ride. And don’t forget to check out the Facebook Page at facebook.com/gladstoneswheelsandwaves
