Car collectors and auto enthusiasts pack into what’s known as “Supercar Sunday” every weekend, at the Westfield Promenade Mall parking lot, Woodland Hills, CA.  From 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., hundreds of fans and serious auto collectors show up at what at first appears to be a used car lot. But a closer look reveals scores of 2016 models of Ford Mustangs with modified engines and body parts to vintage muscle cars like a 1972 Ferrari and 1937 ford luxury sedan with an LS1 Chevy Corvette engine. Car enthusiasts Bob Gouch, who owns the 1937 Ford comes often to the “Supercar show” and found a good spot for his red, candy wine auto.

From classics like this '57 Bel-Air Chevy wagon to 2016 Mustangs, the car show has it all.

“It has a new paint job,” he said. “I bought it about a month ago, and it was a 2008 build. I tried to buy it five years ago and couldn’t afford it, then five months ago I found for sale and got it.” Gouch said if he had to sell it he could easily earn $85,000 for it, but added the car is “priceless.” It sits on airbags and has a road clearance of about 2.5 inches. When he comes upon potholes, he said he lifts the ford frame up and drives right through them.

Auto Collector Jamie Howard and son Phillip were also on hand to show off their 1972 Ferrari, which has been in the family for 27 years. “I bought this original Ferrari in New York 27 years ago and put in a fresh new engine and rims and tires,” said Jamie Howard.  And Jamie’s son Phillip Howard added, “It’s fun to drive, and you don’t get to drive many stick shifts cars like these anymore. This one is a five speed.

The car show is free and allows fans to get close-up view hot rods, old and new luxury sports cars and modified muscle cars. The star of the show this Sunday (Jan. 17, 2016) was a dark blue, 2002 Ford Mustang with a 1,000 horsepower and a parachute mounted on the back. The owner slowly drove through the aisles of cars on display turning heads at every turn. Just idling sounded like a speedboat in the water.

Loads of roadsters and classic sportscars at the show.

The volunteers coordinating the free event ask that you show courtesy by keeping your care music low, not burning your tires or revving up your engines. The event coordinators prefer that you register at www.DrivenWorld.com before coming, so they can make room for the expected number of cars that will be on display.

A variety of makes and models can be found every Sunday at the Supercar Sunday auto show.

Each week is different. You might see a lot of McLaren’s one week or Corvettes the next time around. Antique and new sports cars like Mustangs GT’s and Corvettes are always there, but if you have a special make or model in mind check out the website for each Super Sunday at http://www.supercarsunday.com/. Supercar Sunday is a free, family community event, but organizers have costs in putting it all together, so they do accept donations via PayPal on their website to help reduce expenses. Don’t forget to bring your camera, many of these cars on display are not only rare, but you may never see them again. This car show is a five on a scale of five. If you attend, let us know what you think.
