NY to California 2011 via Lincoln Highway – Day 16 – Pebble beach Concours d’Elegance

Sunday, time for the big one. Large in all things; scope, quality, and entry fee. Situated in on the normally very private Pebble Beach golf course just off of 17mile drive that you normally would have to pay $25 just to drive on, is the ultimate in snobbery and amazingly restored cars.  It’s hard to believe any auto manufacture was ever able to build cars to this quality level. After spending hours inspecting the meticulous effort put into every detail of these cars it is easy to become overwhelmed and require a rest and an over-priced sandwich.   Before the official entry, there are several areas devoted to manufactures promotions and prototypes/concept cars. One of the most popular was the Alfa Romeo/Zagato TZ3 Stradale. Zagato has plans to manufacture only nine of this unique autos. Selling price was not available.

At 3pm the procession of winning cars parade past the huge crowd for their recognition.  This is a stunning event that I would really only recommend doing once as its far to expensive difficult to attend more then once
