Pacific Coast Dream Machines photos

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 Sunday, April 26, 2009.

It's not all automotive concoctions at the Pacific Coast Dream Machines. Any auto show is a reason to bring out this 1957 Chevy Bel Air classic.
