Guests of Mill Rose Inn this spring might want to take part in a Half Moon Bay tradition. The 24th annual Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show will be held on Sunday, April 27th at Half Moon Bay Airport. This celebration of automobiles, aircraft, antique tractors and more is a popular and exciting event that locals and visitors alike look forward to year after year. Read on to find out what awaits you at the 24th annual Pacific Coast Dream Machines show.
Each year this “spectacular showcase of motorized mechanical marvels” draws visitors out to the Half Moon Bay Airport. Machines such as cars, war planes and motorcycles from the 20th and 21st centuries will be on display for the public to enjoy. Whether you’re into hot rods, imports, dragsters, luxury cars, or sports cars, the Pacific Coast Dream Machines show has something for every car lover. Also on display will be customized trucks, souped up motorcycles and vehicles modified to run on alternative fuels like bio-diesel.
Speakers and experts will be on hand to give visitors greater insight into the world of these marvelous machines. Last years speakers included members of the “Blastolene Brotherhood” who come up with innovative designs for cars and transform all kinds of vehicles, including an antique stagecoach. Speakers for the 2014 Pacific Coast Dream Machines show will be announced closer to the event on their website.
A highlight of the Pacific Coast Dream Machines show is the military machine display. An impressive array of vintage warbirds will be present for viewing and some will even take flight in an exciting demonstration. Planes present in past years include the P-51 Mustang, the Yak9, the Curtiss P-40, T-6, T-28, T-33 and Hawker Sea Fury.
Another point of interest at Pacific Coast Dream Machines is the restored antique tractor exhibition. Tractors and farm equipment from as early as the 1920s have been on display in past years. Anyone interested in agricultural vehicles or restoration will be impressed by these beautiful machines.
Accompanying the machine displays is awesome food, drink and live entertainment. The proceeds from Pacific Coast Dream Machines benefit the Coastside Adult Day Health Center.
