There are car shows that used to be a hushed secret. Shows like Pebble Beach, The Quail, and Amelia Island were known, but they weren’t well known. Now, they’re household names. But there are still shows that are blissfully secret. Like this one at the Pasadena Art Center.

For his first column on Road & Track, Jonathan Ward—the man behind ICON 4x4’s wild custom trucks—offered to take us inside the Car Classic at the Pasadena Art Center.
