CATHEDRAL CITY, CA – Blue skies and sunshine greeted all visitors to the Doral Resort last weekend when Great Autos of Yesteryear put on its annual car show to benefit the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. For the second year, car enthusiasts have chosen the new animal shelter to receive proceeds from the show, as well as the raffle of a 1973 Ford Thunderbird. The automobile was donated by a member of the car group; last year’s winner even donated the vehicle back to the shelter, which was then auctioned off by McCormick’s auto auction at the Agua Caliente Casino.
The show featured more than 70 different cars such as a 1914 Ford Model-T and a 2008 Bentley Brooklands Coupe. A large part of the show featured cars form the 1950s through the mid-1970s. More than 1,000 people toured the emerald green golf course. The Doral hosted the event for the first time and the crowd agreed by measure of their applause, when asked by Palm Springs Mayor Pro Tem Ginny Foat about the move. The show was open to the public and cost $10. If you missed it this year, watch out for 2013!
