                VINTAGE  CAR  SHOW  JUNE  25,  2005

The first Concorso Venezia, an "Old School" Classic & Custom Car Show, will
be featured at the Fourth Annual Venice Beach Carnevale! June 25th in
Windward Circle as one of the kick-off events of the Venice Beach
Centennial Celebration.

Santa Monica Saab is sponsoring this first Concorso Venezia focusing on
cars, trucks and motorcycles at least thirty years old and it is being
organized by the SoCal Arcane Auto Society, event producer Pierre
Vuilleumier, and automotive journalist, Rick Feibusch.

Rick commented, "It seems fitting that we celebrate 100 years of Venice
memories with a look at the cars that have been such as part of automotive
history.  The Shelby Cobra, and the Vector exotic supercoupe were developed
right here in Venice in the 1960s and early 1980s ( now a Pilates studio
)."  Pierre adds, "We are involving the Peterson Automotive Museum and
anticipate the arrival of some great cars from their amazing collection as
well." Jeremy Morrissey, General Manager of Santa Monica Saab explained,
"Santa Monica Saab is very excited to support the Concorso in celebration
of the Venice Centennial."
