The La Jolla Motor Classic is About to Happen

by Wallace Wyss –

As a car artist, I attend many car events but this is one of the best in SoCal (the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance), largely by the jewel-like setting–on a grass field overlooking the Pacific. In fact you can hear the seals (or are they seal lions?) fighting for territory right outside the Concours. One drawback is no formal parking–you have little parking throughout the La Jolla Village, and will be competing for space with shoppers.

Here’s a summary of the activities. Bear in mind a spectator ticket might be close to $100, but hey isn’t Pebble Beach far more costly? Olive PR sent me a detailed list of events. As you can see, there’s lots of collector cars that will be visible outside the show so even if you don’t buy a ticket, you will see plenty and be in a nice town for lunch…
