The corners of Roscoe Blvd. and Orion Street were turned into a car lover’s paradise on Sunday. In the northwest corner, Mustangs were gathered like the cool kids in high school and the low-riders situated behind them stood as their Danny Zuko-esque foil.
To their south were the custom rods, the wild children of cars. A truck resembling a World War II army transport truck stood next to what could only be described as a death mobile.
Inside the lone air-conditioned room, the Galpin Auto Sport showroom, the original Batmobile laid in wait, terrifying evil as it did in the 1966 show. Those who passed over the proceedings on the 405 North overhead, hurtled over an organized orgy of steel, oil and rubber that was the 3rd annual Galpin Auto Show. -Contact A Specialist For More Information
Galpin Motors in the San Fernando Valley, CA held its third annual car show. The show honored the great George Barris and Bob Ferris with an exclusive invite only party the night before located in Galpin’s private collection.
George Barris is known as the king of Kustomizers creating machines such as the Batmobile while Bob Ferris is known as Galpin’s own off-roading legend. The party prior to the show honored both men while also hosting some auto industry VIPs. There was no shortage or incredible cars or good food.
The car show welcomed any owner looking to share the passion with other car people. Anything from a brand-new Mustang GT to a Morgan 3-wheeler was displayed by proud owners.
Amidst the sweltering triple digit temperatures, folks from all over came to share the passion. Delicious BBQ, and refreshments kept owners and the public satisfied while those more interested in experiencing a little speed participated in the outdoor go-kart track set up by MB2 Raceway.Contact A Specialist For More Information
Brandon Boeckmann slips into the driver’s seat of the low-slung, gull-wing sports car, grins, and says, “So, how fast do you want to go?”
A minute later, on a Monterey back street, he punches the gas pedal and demonstrates exactly how a 1,058-horsepower supercar that weighs only 3,600 pounds goes from zero to 60 mph in under three seconds.
Boeckman is the scion of the family that has owned the huge Galpin Ford auto dealership in the San Fernando Valley. His grandfather Bert went to work for Galpin in 1953 and purchased the company in the 1960s; his father just retired from Galpin, where his uncle is still president.
The younger Boeckmann had come to Monterey Car Week to show off the Galpin GTR1, his company’s latest offering.
The custom-made, “coach-built” automobile runs a 5.4-liter V-8 dual overhead cam engine, supercharged, that produces 977 foot-pounds of torque.Contact A Specialist For More Information
The Monterey motorsports weekend is a showcase for unique cars. In a place where most Lamborghinis, Ferraris and McLarens barely turn a head, you essentially have to be in a one-of-a-kind vehicle to make any sort of impression. We did just that when we climbed into the Galpin Ford GTR1 concept for a quick tour around the Peninsula.
The GTR1 concept debuted last year at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Built to represent Galpin Auto Sports’ vision of what a next-generation Ford GT would embody, that first concept sported twin turbochargers that increased output to 1,024 horsepower and 739 pound-feet of torque.
According to Galpin’s Brandon Boeckmann, they didn’t quite like the turbos’ personality, so they installed a massive 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger instead. The GTR1 concept now boasts 1,058 hp and 992 lb-ft of torque.Contact A Specialist For More Information

Every car has a story. But few are as good as the one surrounding “The Orbitron,” the space-age ride created in 1964 by California’s most renowned custom car builder, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.
The car had an electric-blue asymmetrical body that sported a bubble-shaped roof. The interiors consisted of sky-blue shag (known colloquially as “monkey fur”). Just under the dash, it featured a full-blown color television — presumably so that the driver could stay up on all the telenovelas while sitting in rush-hour traffic.Contact A Specialist For More Information
SoCal enthusiasts enjoy a great day of sun and Mustang fun at LA’s Petersen Museum
If you were to ask someone the question, “what is the automotive capital of the United States?” most people would answer, “Detroit,” as it’s the home of the “Big 3” US car makers (Brand X, Brand X-2 and Ford), and city that’s recognized as the Mecca of the automotive industry.
While that answer certainly gets no argument from us, there’s also a lot that definitely can be said about Southern California; the area ranging from Los Angeles to San Diego. We consider this to be a leading car territory as well, because with its year-‘round sunny skies and warm temperatures, SoCal is a perfect place for car enthusiasts—especially Mustang enthusiasts—to live and fully enjoy all of the many facets of the automotive lifestyle.Contact A Specialist For More Information

Galpin Ford has been building and customizing unique one-off vehicles for years, and this is an early example of the company’s creative genius. As the name says, this dragster — built by Gary Weckesser — is powered by four V8 engines. Based on a 1969 Ford Mustang funny car, this dragster was quite popular on the show circuit from 1969 to 1975. But it wasn’t simply a show car; its four engines put out an estimated 3000 horsepower. The Mach IV could hit a quarter-mile in around seven seconds at a speed of 180 mph.Contact A Specialist For More Information
