The Corona virus issues have forced the show to change the dates of the Huntington Beach Concours once again. The new schedule is Sunday, August 1st for both the Concours event and the “Hot Rods and Customs” event. We will NOT be doing a separate Saturday show in 2021. Those who normally attend the Saturday show are welcome to join us on Sunday.
The event and car show will feature Dave Kunz, KABC-TV Channel 7 automobile expert, as Grand Marshal, live entertainment by Aprile Deanne DJ/Vocalist, Hot Wheels racing and model trains for the kids, good food, and interesting vendors.
“The Chevrolet Nomad was introduced in 1954 as part of the General Motors Motorama line of “dream cars” developed by GM head stylist Harley Earl. As a follow-up to the Chevrolet Corvette roadster and Chevrolet (Corvette) Corvair fastback of the year before, the Nomad was a “dream car” alongside the Pontiac Bonneville Special and Oldsmobile F-88; the latter two were experimental prototypes built on Corvette chassis.”
“Chevrolet Nomad is a nameplate used by Chevrolet in North America from the 1950s to the 1970s, applied largely to station wagons. Three different Nomads were produced as a distinct model line, with Chevrolet subsequently using the name as a trim package.”
“Marketed as a halo model of the Chevrolet station wagon line for the Tri-Five series, the Nomad was repackaged as a station wagon counterpart of the Chevrolet Bel Air and Chevrolet Impala from 1958 to 1961. From 1968 to 1972, the Nomad returned as the base-trim Chevrolet Chevelle station wagon.”
“Making its debut on a 1954 concept car, the nameplate has again seen use by Chevrolet on multiple concept vehicles; none have reached production.”
The Best of Show for Rod & Custom Show was Brian Almas’ 1956 Chevrolet NomadThis will be a Sunday-only event this year and will feature Classic Cars, Motorcycles, Hot Rods, and Custom Cars. There will also be other forms of fun entertainment. The HB Concours d’ Elegance is a non-profit organization benefitting the Children’s Resource Center at the Huntington Beach Central Library.

The Rolls Royce and Bentley Drivers Club of Southern California is returning to the 2021 HB Concours after a successful inaugural annual National Points Meet in 2019.
