Each March, Los Angeles California becomes the gathering point for Vintage Porsche owners and enthusiast from around the world. The “LA Literature and Toy Show” is really a great event.
Starting the Wednesday before, attendees are welcome to visit a host of open houses around LA. Below is a partial list of ones I have visited in the past and hope to visit again this year.
- Willhoit Restorations
- Sierra Madre Collection
- LA Dismantlers
- TruSpeed Motorcars
- Liberty Motor Sports
- Euro Collectables
Saturday Lit and Toy Show
The key event is held at the LAX Hilton on Saturday morning and starts at 7:30 AM. Plan on spending at least 3 hours there shopping and maybe buying some of those things on your list.
Sunday Anaheim Swap Meet
Sunday morning is another must do event. The Anaheim swap meet will have many local Porsche hobbyist cleaning their garages. In many ways, this is even better that the Saturday event.
