The fun continues!
The Concours d'Elegance in now considered the premier car show of pre and postwar automobiles along with the latest concept car designs. It is a charitable event held every August at the Pebble Beach Gold Links (18th hole). The show was started in 1950 and has grown every year in both prominence and the number of participants. Cars are judged for authenticity, history, style and function. Cars are grouped into classes based on manufacturer, country of origin, era, and coach builder. Thousands of spectators from all over the world attend the event. Locally, this event is referred to as Car Week. In exchange for a great contribution to the local economy, residents get to enjoy lack of parking, street closures and traffic jams in their otherwise quiet little town.
More photos to enjoy. Some of these cars might bring back some memories!
Well, this post pretty much wraps up the Pebble Beach Concours d'Excellence. I am encouraging Tom to post a featured gallery of the event on his website once he has processed all of the hundreds of images. When he gets that done I will forward a link to his site so you can go there and see the whole thing.
Yesterday Tom headed into San Francisco to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge. He was hoping for good light but was disappointed in that, however, he thinks he got some good images nonetheless. He also got some great shots along the way and in Santa Cruz. Those will follow. Thanks for sharing. We love having each of you along and enjoy the emails that you send with your observations of our images and the stories we tell.
