Pebble Beach Again Anchors the Monterey Week

It all started with the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance over 60 years ago, and it was still the dominant force of the week this year, bar none. Today, August 17, it was huge, it was successful, it had the best cars from all over the world, it was a “happening”. The quality of the classic cars was outstanding, with many 99+ cars competing head to head for only 1-2-3 in various classes, and some honorary awards. It was extremely difficult for the judges, since the cars ending up in the first 3 places are all usually 100 point cars. Then, of...

McQueen Ferrari Smashes Record at RM’s Saturday Sale

One of the most highly anticipated lots of Monterey Car Week, the ex-Steve McQueen 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, entered the history books on Saturday night, selling for a record $10,175,000 at RM’s flagship Monterey sale.

Concorso Italiano Brings Italy to Monterey Week

In a brilliant move, Concorso Italiano moved from Fridays to this past Saturday, August 16th, relieving a multi-year conflict with The Quail. In addition, Concorso Italiano moved back to its old haunt at the (newly refurbished) Black Horse Golf Course in Monterey Bay, California, high on a hill overlooking the bay. This event grew again this year and showcased more than 800 – 1000 Italian cars, of course, but also showcased other elements of Italian style such as fashion, food, music and art. It was a celebration of all things Italian, and...

The Quail Brings Style to Monterey Week

“The Quail – A Motorsports Gathering” has become a fixture of Monterey Week, albeit a very restricted one, since the reorganizers have stayed with their aspiration of providing a distinctive experience for only 3,000 people, a number that can fit contentedly on the field at the Quail Lodge and Resort for the day. This exclusivity has made the show very desirable, with tickets sold out months in advance. On this fashionable Friday, August 15th, the cars were the focus, of course, but an added allure of this show was that each pass holder was...

Automobilia Monterey Showcases Memorabilia During Monterey Week

Automobilia Monterey is now a recognized part of Monterey Week, a lead-off event as much as Concours on the Avenue.
