Carmel Concours d'Elegance

This is CAR week in Carmel.  The most prestigious of the events is to be held this coming Sunday with exceptional cars parked on the grass at the 18th hole of the Pebble Beach Golf Club.  Leading up to that final day are lots of other events that showcase these special cars.  This post covers the cars that Tom photographed along the downtown streets of Carmel where a smaller version of the Concours is held.
