Eye Candy: Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

Eye Candy: Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

Photos by Bob Golfen  An older gentleman was sitting next to me Sunday on the shuttle bus as we left the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. As we pulled away, he said, “That’s another one off my bucket list.” Indeed. For classic car enthusiasts, the Pebble Beach Concours does have the life-experience importance of such things […]

Eye Candy: 51st annual Das Awkscht Fescht

Photos by Jed Rapoport There aren’t many collector car events that can claim more than 50 years of continuous existence.

Eye Candy: Concours d’LeMons Michigan

Photos by Larry Edsall As best I can figure, the only person who displayed cars recently at both the Concours d’Elegance of America and the Concours d’LeMons that took place the day before was Myron Vernis of Akron, Ohio.

Eye Candy: Concours d’Elegance of America

Photos by Larry Edsall One of the things that makes the less-than-modestly named Conocurs d’Elegance of America actually pretty special is that it includes several classes each year that are just plain fun – this year we saw Jet Age pickup trucks – plus what it calls “special displays.” Basically, explains Brian Joseph, chairman of […]
