- Hispano Suiza and Stutz DV-32 lead the pack to the award ramp

Pebble Beach 2018

Pebble Beach is always an impressive display, and this year was no exception. My wife and I go every year. We set up our blanket and picnic lunch along the route that the cars take to get to the award ramp. It is always a great place to sit because the cars stop right in front of you before going up the ramp.

My wife enjoys the people watching just as much as the cars. You see some real characters out there. Ladies trying to walk across the fairway in stiletto heels while carrying a glass of champagne or a small dog are always entertaining.

The weather was cool in the morning and then moderately hot after the fog burned off. It was very nice for most of the day. Perfect weather for a few glasses of Prosecco and a nice lunch while the cars go by.

My friends in their 1921 Paige 6-66 Daytona Speedster picking up their second place award in the Vintage Era Sporting class. It is a great car and they are some of the nicest people I have ever met in the car world.

The car on the left is a 1921 Kissel 6-45 "gold bug" speedster which took first in class. My Kissel is a 1920 in the same colors, but mine is a four seat tourster body. Both of these cars have "mother-in-law" seats that slide out of the sides.

I look forward to the concours every year. It never disappoints. Cars are only eligible for entry if they have not been shown in the past ten years. It keeps the show fresh and always interesting.
