"Evan's Garage" Showcases Vintage Cars in Museum Setting

The La Jolla Concours d'Elegance Car Show has become one of
the top 5 car shows in the USA and the event now showcases
events for 3 days of fun starting Friday with an opening celebration
at The La Valencia Hotel and ending Sunday with the main
car show on Sunday at Ellen Browning Scripps Park.

The Saturday day event is a city car cruise through Balboa Park
and ending with lunch at The Grand Del Mar with stops at
2 private car collections. 1. The Evan's Family Garage aka
The "Evans Garage", which is a collection of cars started
in 1983 by the late Mr. Bill Evans Senior.

Every attention to detail has been included in the settings and
antique furniture and other props set through out the 2 story
"car museum".

According to the website the Evans Garage is an ever-evolving collection
of vehicles spanning seven decades. Among its more notable treasures are
the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, which once held the international speed record of
142 mph and a 1917 De Havalland biplane from the Royal British
Flying Corps, which reigns as the building’s centerpiece.

As a person who has lived in the Mission Beach area for almost 30 years
I have heard many stories of this treasured private collection and the luxurious
event space that is rented out through the Evan's Family group of hotels.

This was a real treat to see and although the "Blitzen Benz auto" is the most popular car
it was a early 1900's fire truck that was my favorite and one that I shot about 100 +
photos of. It was complete with historical photos from the days of it's use and the
attention to detail with paint, chrome and wheels that showcase the craftsmanship
and technology of the day.

That sounds like a nice place to walk through and appreciate the vintage settings.  That is a sharp manual pumper carriage in the middle photo
