Stroll Among Sublime Automobiles, in La Jolla

The car-major happening will roll out next to the Pacific.

WHEN SPRING BRINGS WARMER DAYS, and our eyes fall to the maps and books and travel apps and bullet journals we studied and kept all winter, our minds can immediately move to pondering our next road trip. "Where will we go?" is an pertinent question, but so is "how will we get there?" Snacks and music are essential topics to mull over, though not as important as the perfect BFF in the passenger seat. And, naturally, we must decide upon our roll, our wheels, the vehicle that will take us up the PCH or down Highway 395 or into Gold Country or through the redwoods. Dreaming about ideal touring cars of yore, and the dream machines of today, is made so much easier, and enjoyable, and before-your-eyes-y when you can see such automobiles in person. And that will happen for a lot of car mavens, should they be in La Jolla on April 8, 2018. That's a Sunday, and that's when the...

LA JOLLA CONCOURS D'ELEGANCE... puts on the parking brake, for an enjoyable spell, at Ellen Browning Scripps Park. You got it, you'll be enjoying ocean views while you auto-it-up, strolling from one exquisitely crafted auto creation to the next. A ticket to the 14th annual auto-stravaganza is $65, and there will be a hosted bar, as well as bites from a line-up of area eateries. And, of course, all of those Rolls Royces and Porches and gleaming sports cars and offbeat roadsters. Concours-oriented doings are actually on the move throughout the weekend leading up to April 8, with Aston Martin Art Deco Party on Saturday, April 7 serving as one posh party among others. Eye it all, as you're daydreaming of summer road trips, then make for La Jolla to see some of the daydreamingest machines around, just feet from where you linger.
