2007 Palos Verdes International Concours
Sunday, September 16, 2007
Story by Jason Husman
On the day before my birthday, we got up early and drove over to the Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles to check out the 15th annual Palos Verdes International Concours d'Elegance. We had purchased our tickets early at the pre-sale cost of $25 per person. The preferred parking was an additional $20 at the event.

Besides the cars that were showing and competing for awards, there was a Shelby corral, a few new cars, wine tasting, a few vendors, a liquor stand and a food stand barbequing hamburgers and hot dogs. Because JoAnn wasn't all that interested in the cars, we headed for the liquor stand first! A beer and a bloody Mary was a great substitute for breakfast in the morning. For lunch we ended up eating a cheeseburger and a chicken sandwich with another pair of drinks.

Most of the show cars were built before we were born and most of them were exceptionally boring to look at. I guess I'm just a modern car lover so it's hard to appreciate the vintage cars. Although, in front of the clubhouse there was an Audi R8 and a Porsche Turbo cabriolet. On the main grounds there was plenty to see from Jaguar, Mercedes Benz, Corvette, Cobra and various other hot rods. In limited numbers was Ferrari, Aston Martin, Bentley, Rolls Royce and a few extremely rare cars.

The show highlights would include an original Ford GT40, a rare Bugatti and a rare Aston Martin. One of the Aston Martin club members tried to recruit me saying that they needed some young blood in the group.
