More Elegant Cars From Pebble Beach

So just what is Pebble Beach Concours d' Elegance all about?  I looked it up and on their website and I found, "To contend in the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, an automobile must be a well preserved or accurately restored vehicle still quite capable of doing what it was meant to do—be driven. It will almost certainly have some historic value—perhaps in its day it served to debut new technology or new styling trends or it has an amazing racing record. And it will be rare—possibly a singular example of a special chassis bearing a respected coachbuilder's art.  After these criteria have been met, a concours car must be one thing more.  Above all, it must be elegant. And elegance is a matter of the eye and the heart."  

I am just guessing the gentleman sitting in the back is on a smart phone!  Ah how times change.  Notice the attention to taking care of not getting anything in the car . . . rags and little rug.  Period dress?

Why aren't they smiling?  

Oh, I like this one.  Can you bring it home to me?

Not just another red car.  Leather straps, a real convertible with an interesting take on a rear view mirror . . . 

Today will offer even more photo opportunities for Tom.  Tomorrow is the actual concourse event, the one he is really looking forward to.  We hope you enjoyed a moment of elegance and history.
