​If You're Doing Pebble, Do It On A Bike

Pebble Beach and the festivities that make up Monterey Car Week have gotten totally out of hand. I'm counting over 50 different events, not including private shindigs and ultra-hyper-exclusive reveals. Add in tens of thousands of people, and it's impossible to get around – let alone park. Bike is the answer. » 8/19/14 7:26pm Yesterday 7:26pm

The Sensational Steering Wheels Of Pebble Beach

Steering wheels are hugely under appreciated. They're the most direct connection between car and driver, feeding unending amounts of information into one of the most dense areas of nerve endings in the body. Just as importantly, they're a technological barometer of what was necessary to keep the engine chugging… » 8/18/14 12:20pm Monday 12:20pm

The concept car that survived a civil war

In the greens of metal at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance, one car leapt out at me; a strange red speedster with a Plymouth badge. I had no idea just how strange it was until the owner shared the details of its five-decade journey from speeding around Detroit to dodging mortars in war-torn Beirut. Here's the… » 8/24/11 12:00pm 8/24/11 12:00pm

Nick Hogan's Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe At Pebble Beach

Well, not really. But if Nick Hogan did have one, this is totally the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe he'd drive. In fact, we bet he has a poster of this exact car on his jail cell wall right now. We'd also say the odds are high on this Phantom sticking out like a sore thumb at the Pebble Beach Concours.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Drives Pebble Beach In Its Bloomers

The Pebble Beach Concours is scheduled for tomorrow, but all the cars are taking their places already, including the debuting Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport. Here, the Veyron Grand Sport is seen running around in its underwear, hoping to avoid photography. Gee, wonder what it looks like? (Thanks to J.F. Musial for… » 8/15/08 11:50am 8/15/08 11:50am

2008 Meadow Brook Concours D'Elegance Preview And Event Guide

As you may have noticed when we told you about the North American debut of the Alfa Romeo Bertone B.A.T. 11, we started off the day yesterday at the 2008 Meadow Brook Concours D'Elegance press breakfast. Actually, it was more of a press "stand-around-and-sweat". August 3rd will mark the 30th Concours held on the… » 7/30/08 3:00pm 7/30/08 3:00pm

Bugatti Veyron Targa To Bow At Pebble Beach, Car Snobs To Feign…

The Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance usually plays host to the reveal of at least one high profile, high-dollar piece of driveway candy every year. This year is no exception with the Bugatti Veyron Targa expected to make an appearance and drop its very expensive top. And when we say expensive, what we really mean to… » 7/11/08 11:20am 7/11/08 11:20am

Access to the Quail Once More Denied

Bumbeck put on his special polo shirt and we headed off from Santa Nella this morning in the hope of taking in the full experience of the Quail — a show which we snuck into last year. Sadly, we were once again denied entry into toffish society, causing Bumbeck to quip, "Well we shan't waste our time here then." Still,… » 8/17/07 4:00pm 8/17/07 4:00pm

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy! We're Off to the Monterey Historics!

This afternoon the two Los Angeleno Jalops who are not the Loverman will hop in a mysical Korean bucket to be magically transported to the Monterey Peninsula for three glorious days of what can only be called The Greatest Spectacle in Auto Enthusiasm. Seriously, the events surrounding the Concours d'Elegance are that » 8/16/07 1:30pm 8/16/07 1:30pm

You Are There: The 2007 Greenwich Concours d'Elegance

No one tried to sell me a private plane this time, but I did get laughed out of the Lamborghini Greenwich tent. I figured I could smooth talk my way into a test drive if I wore enough seersucker. I was wrong. That wasn't much of a surprise, but something else was: I love Packards (I had no idea). On a 90-plus degree… » 6/08/07 1:28pm 6/08/07 1:28pm

The Society of the Spectacle: Voisins at Pebble Beach

We have to admit that Voisin was only an automotive name that hung somewhere in the back of our mind, along with Buick and Lincoln until we got to Pebble this year. A long-past-gone luxury marque with an illustrious history that ended long before we were born. That said, even the most incredible Lincolns and Buicks… » 8/23/06 8:00am 8/23/06 8:00am
