  1. Monterey is a “bucket list” type event
    Northern cal coastline along hi way 1
    Is spectacular

  2. Been to Monterey since 1965-you cannot beat the ambiance there. Raced SCCA, sold cars at the Rick Cole Auction. Those were the days. Remember the Shasta Beverages Race in 10/1977? Thru the 60s & 70s we had Hap Sharp, John Cannon, Lothar Motshenbacher, Larry Albedi, Jim Hall, Captain Penske, “Peter Perfect”, Parnell Jones, President/Grand Poobah Roger Eandi, Jon Norman, Dr Lou Sell, Dick Smothers, And so many more Great memories!!

  3. Monterey is on the other side of the world. I live in Virginia. Chances of me being there this year are extremely slim. Would love to be there, but logistics make it difficult. Monterey is a beautiful slice of America. Wish I could live there…..

  4. When I lived in California in the ’70’s and ’80’s I went every year. Now i may get back every 5 to 10 years. Much of what I loved about the week in the early years (quality time with great cars and car people) has changed for me as the event has grown. Plus there are other great events like Goodwood and Amelia that are as easy for me to get to now that I live on the Right Coast.

  5. I participated 20 years ago. It was affordable and fun. Car people with a desire to be with like minded car people. Now the show caters to investors and a lot of people who want to be seen with their expensive restoration. This may sound like sour grapes, but the average person could afford to attend back then.

  6. I would select cover number 2 as I love the Aston Martin DB5 as the design is so perfect and seeing the car in action is Gold Finger and the scene of Bond driving the car is the high point of the movie. My next choice would be cover number 1 as the Nissan is rare and it would be interesting to read about a car that was forbidden in this country. The Ferrari is interesting but not cover worthy. I would like to see more Enzo Era Ferrari’s as a choice. It seems the mid-engine design is getting long in the tooth and the bloom is going off the rose.

  7. Will attend Reunion races, Little car show, Tour stop in Carmel, Automotive artifacts in Seaside, look through the fences at the rich folks throwing good money at old moving metal.

  8. The Best event is the ” Pacific Grove Concours & Rally”…
    BECAUSE it is a ” Driving ” event …..I have driven in it
    For the last 21 years ….. ! And a fun dinner and
    awards event afterwards …. just do it !

  9. Another left coast event that’s a “must do” is the “Luxury and Supercar Weekend and The Canadian Concours D’Elegance” held in Vancouver, BC each September. Because of the wealthy demographics, you see more examples of McLarens. Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris on display than their factory delivery lots because that city has more registered exotics than any other North American city. Add factory displays from all luxury marques, food and wine from their finest restaurants, a botanical setting and like-minded attendees, you find auto nirvana — and the American press has yet to discover it!

  10. We go to The Little Car Show in Pacific Grove on the Wednesday every year and enter our 1972 RHD Austin Mini Clubman saloon, The rest of the week we attend the Concours on the Avenue in Carmel, the Tour de Elegance also in Carmel, the Kick Off party that used to be at the Folktale Winery but now I see this year it will be on Lighthouse in Pacific Grove. We attend and purchase items from the Automobilia show in Marina, & from the similar but higher end show at the Inn at Spanish Bay. We also just love cruising around the Peninsula in our goofy little car and hang out with the car enthusiasts from around the world.
