Showing posts with the label best of show

La Jolla Concours d'Elegance

It was another early start on Sunday, after getting  up early for Cars and Coffee, but I had to be there at 5:30AM to be ready to help direct car owners on to the show field at the La Jolla Cove park.  It rained the night before and it looked like all the hard work of chalking out the numbers for the show field was for naught, but it worked out.  Over 160-170 cars and motorcycles on the green!  Some very nice vehicles, including some that don't see the light of day except for these shows.

Alfa Romeo 8C2900 Wins Best of Show

The marque is on the rise. An Alfa Romeo 8C2900 won this year's coveted Best of Show at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. According to an Autoweek posting, the owners actually drive the car on tours and will continue the practice in the future. We could possibly see this car in the "wild" some time in the future. Congratulations to Jon and Mary Shirley.
