@Firemunkee - There were about 300 cars at the Concourse and I have photos of maybe 75. Can't post them all as it takes time to resize them so WKC pics can handle downloading.  There were two GT500's at the show.  A coupe and convertible. I get to the show at O'dark thirty so I can watch the cars staging and driving in.  Much prefer to see them running and experience the smell of good old 103 octane fuel.







Yesterday, a Ferrari 250 GTO sold at the RM Sotheby's auction in Monterey for $48.5 million (new world record).

In 2011 when I attended the Concourse, I found this 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa parked on the street in Carmel prior to the Concourse. It sold later that day for $16.4 million.



What's amazing is that during car week there are vintage cars of this caliber and value everywhere.  Starbucks, MacDonalds and even Safeway grocery store parking lots are virtually are a car show.

Nice!  I'll have to take and post a pic of my Dad's 39 Chevy street rod.
