What would we do without French cars?

Bugatti, Delahaye, Delage. These names are almost synonymous with “Best of Show” at prestigious concours all over the world.

The 12th Annual La Jolla Concours d’Elegance was no exception.

Best of show was awarded to Ken and Ann Smith’s 1936 Delahaye Type 135 Competition Disappearing Top Convertible. Its coachwork was, as you might expect, by Figoni & Falaschi.

This was the sixth time I have been the emcee of the La Jolla Concours, and I have watched as it has Read More

The Three Cars I Should Have Bought Last Weekend

This was my fifth year at the Auctions America sale at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center. Each time, I have been shooting episodes for “What’s My Car Worth?” – our new season begins May 12 on Velocity.

1952 Pegaso Z-102 Cupola and 1930 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Take Amelia Island Best in Show

The 21st annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is all wrapped up.

I’ve been here for 19 of the events to date, and each has been memorable.

In many ways, the Amelia Island weekend is a spring break camp for gearheads. It’s as if each year our parents bundle us off and send us to a familiar place. They know the bunkhouse where we’ll be staying (The Ritz), the various playgrounds (the lobby bar, the RM Sotheby’s, Gooding Read More
