Pictures From the Los Angeles Concours d'Elegance
We didn't have the the best weather for it but it was still a lovely day for the first annual Los Angeles Concours d'Elegance which was held at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. In fact, we were probably lucky to have gray weather, the effect of bright sun on all those highly-waxed surfaces could be blinding. There were so many gorgeous cars there that I filled the entire memory card of my camera with Ferraris, Mercedes, Aston Martins, Packards and Bugattis. It was my first chance to check out a gullwing Mercedes. I once quibbled over the price of these but now I get it. They are stunning. After the jump, lots and lots and lots of car pictures.
This gorgoeous Bugatti was far and away the most beautiful car I saw at the event. Simply stunning.
My inner girly girl was loving this pink and black Packard convertible.
This is the first Delahaye I have ever seen. It is in gorgeous shape.
The interior is beautifully Art Deco.
This Lincoln Continental was the most beautiful shade of lemon yellow.
