Many car shows feature production vehicles of past and present. But at the Pacific Coast Dream Machine event in Half Moon Bay, Calif., the sky's the limit when it comes to determining which cars will be on display.

From custom cars to tricked-out trucks, and races involving little more than an engine on wheels, the event is a hit for any automotive enthusiast who subscribes to the "build it and they will come" business model. The 19th annual show took place on April 26.
