Take a joyride with me through South Pas... and marvel at all the vintage cars.
South Pasadena was part of transportation history -- a destination for early rail as well as home to one of the first freeways.
Oh, and then there are the countless vintage cars...
Spend enough time in South Pasadena and you'll notice that the Rialto, the historic buildings and the classic craftsman houses aren't the only remaining treasures of our past. This town has more than its fair share of vintage cars. Hang out on Mission Street on a weekend afternoon, and you'll see a promenade of enough old roadsters, coupes and muscle cars to satisfy even the most persnickety car buff. I'm not just talking about your standard issue American Graffiti-worthy hot rods, either. I've spotted a late 30s Peugot 402 and a 1949 Hudson Commodore -- even a mysterious black sedan that two confounded car aficionados argued about while standing nearby. (One insisted it was an unmarked 1939 Cadllac; the other swore it was a Citreon Traction Avant.)
