Gearheads – and those who simply appreciate the beauty of a classic car – will get an opportunity to gaze at some fine fenders this weekend as the 9th Annual La Jolla Concours d’Elegance rolls into the elite seaside city.
The automobile event is happening Friday through Sunday at Ellen Browning Scripps Park in La Jolla Cove and will boast a bevy of luxurious, vintage cars, including American sports cars, ‘50s classics, Woodies and Italian and British marques. Big brands at the event will include Rolls Royce, Bentley, Cadillac, Bugatti and Duesenberg – the best of the best.
Against the beautiful backdrop of La Jolla, spectators will get to admire the rides while daydreaming of taking a cruise on the open road in their favorites.
