    The Orinda Classic Car show brought large crowds to Orinda for sights of exotic and classic vehicles. Highlights of the show included an exhibit of Porches and a special exhibit of classic station wagons, including three woodys. Taverna Pellegrini and Loard’s provided refreshments and additional entertainment was provided by the Lamorinda Idol singers. The show culminated with the ever-popular drive around Orinda, where attendees could ride in one of the classics for a small donation.
    The 15th annual show raised over $45,000 for local charities including Seniors Around Town and the Orinda Historical Society. Over the past 15 years, more than $640,000 has been raised for local charities.

With its distinctive “gullwing” doors, this mint condition 1955 Mercedes Benz 300 SL Coupe was one highlight of this year’s show.
