2009 L.A. Concours d'Elegance – Click above for high-res image gallery
Now that it's almost officially summer, that means one thing: car shows. While those on the East Coast were treated to two days of fine automobiles at the Greenwich Concours this past weekend (photos from which are forthcoming), those of us on the West Coast headed over to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for the fourth annual LA Concours d'Elegance.
As in past years, there was something for every type of car nut, with classes ranging from Horseless Carriages to Supercars and everything in between. A muscle car fan? There were plenty to enjoy including a black-on-black AAR Cuda, and a genuine Superbird. Like Italian sports cars? There were several Ferrari classes plus a Lamborghini class with two beautiful Miuras and a pristine '89 Countach 25th Anniversary. Are classic British roadsters your thing? Morgans, Austin Healeys, MGs, Jaguars, and Triumphs all graced the lawn. And of course there were European Classics like this 1938 Delahaye Type 135 MS and 1939 Bugatti type 57C, plus a class dedicated to the 300SL Gullwing, Shelby Cobras, Aston Martins, Hot Rods, and more.
