Hi All
Here’s some pics of the 2004 Pine Valley California Car Show taken on April 10, 2004, to benefit the Fire Department and help recover from the “Firestorm 2003”.  First is a picture taken just before we evacuated from my home. We were fortunate we didn’t lose our home as so many others did during that terrible firestorm. Then some pics of Paul Le Mat who played the role of “John Milner” in the classic movie “American Graffiti”.  He was at the car show to sign autographs and help support the cause. An estimated count of classic cars and hot rods was around 700 to 800 which turned out for the show.  Hope you like the pics!!! Classic cars, hot rods and rock ‘n roll forever! Mike Merrill!!!
