Wavecrest Woodie Car Show at Moonlight Beach, Encinitas

Hosted by the San Diego Woodie Club

These photos were taken at the September 20, 2014 Wavecrest Woodie Show, the largest woodie car show in the world. I arrived a little late, so only got about half the cars that were there.

The pics are sorted by year then make. To see the same photos sorted the other way (make then year), click here.

Many will argue that 1948 was the last year of the "true woodies." All wagons (except the Willys Jeep) were prewar designs. Wood was structural as well as ornamental and roofs were made of wood and covered by water-proofed fabric (one notable exception was the Chrysler Town & Country, which in 1941, was the first wagon with a steel roof).

The 1949 model year, introduced first by Ford in June 1948, brought postwar design. All wagons now had steel roofs and steel inner structures with wood often appearing in side panels, doors, and tailgates.

'49 through '51 Ford and Mercury wagons are all 2-door models with all-steel bodies, applying real wood over steel.
