Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2019

 Monterey Car Week is the highlight of the year for me and the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is the highlight of the week, a fitting end to a great automotive week.

I got to Pebble around eight in the morning (got up at six, showered, shaved, and then drove to my favorite coffee shop in Monterey the East Village Coffee Lounge). For almost two hours I walked the field taking pictures of cars and people. By eleven in the morning the field was jammed with people. Here's the cars and people that caught my eye.

On the walk into the Concours these cars caught my eye.
This is one of the worst looking Cobra knock-offs I've seen.

I'm not sure what Lexus was thinking with this paint scheme.
