Some of the cars on display off N. Kellogg Ave. in Goleta had patriotic interiors and a war time history.

Dennis Beebe brought his 1942 Ford built. He said Ford made them during WWII.

Visitors had a chance to check out custom plates and cool hood ornaments.

One of the most unique cars on display uses a propeller.
