The 8th Annual Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance in Beverly Hills (Albert Wong)

GALLERY—The Eighth Annual Greystone Mansion Concours d’Elegance in Beverly Hills surpassed record attendance despite threatening weather reports. Possible thunderstorms did not deter thousands of automobile enthusiasts who enjoyed what turned out to be a beautiful day at the enchanted estate where a full complement of 125 vintage automobiles were on display in this year’s Concours field. LA Car’s ace photographer Albert J. Wong was there to gather visual vignettes of the event.

LITTLE CARS, BIG SHOW
Old Town Upland rolls with the Southwest Unique Little Car Show

GALLERY—37 years ago, it was called the Weird Little Car Show by micro car aficionados in Arizona. Since then, the name has changed (to the Southwest Unique Little Car Show), and venue has been hopping all over the Southwest. The April 2017 show was in Old Town Upland, California—surely one of the best venues for the event. LA Car went down to Upland with a tiny Fiat 500e to partake in the big show.

HARLEYS vs INDIANS
Scenes from the Petersen Automotive Museum’s exhibit

GALLERY— The Petersen Automotive Museum newest exhibit showcases the rivalry between two of America’s iconic motorcycle manufacturers, Harley-Davidson and Indian. The two companies have a long-documented rivalry that spans more than a century. The exhibition, presented by Bonnier Corporation, is now open to the public in the Richard Varner Family Gallery and will run through early February 2018. Ace photographer Albert J. Wong was there to optically lasso the two-wheeled stallions into the lens of his digital camera.

SOLD!
The Mecum Auctions in Pomona

AUTO EVENT—The Mecum Auctions (surely you’ve seen one on television … right … way cool cars, trucks, motorcycles, even man cave memorabilia all being paraded across an open stage in front of a raucous crowd, each barely slowing down as they cross from left to right, only to pause for what seems split seconds with an auctioneer shouting, cajoling, challenging, and quite unsubtly suggesting prices that ratchet show on a gargantuan overheard scoreboard that flashes the current bid in bucks, euros, and two or three other basic world currencies) were just in town.

A BUG’S ART
The Art of Bugatti at the Petersen

GALLERY— By it’s unique exterior appearance, one would probably never know that the Petersen Automotive Museum was once a classic multi-level Los Angeles department store. Now, instead of clothing, home goods and linens, each floor is filled with some of the most beautiful and desirable automobiles ever created. Some of them are perfectly restored daily drivers that you may have parked in your very own garage, while others are rolling works of art bearing some of the most revered names in the automotive world. Such is the case with the current exhibit at the Petersen, The Art of Bugatti.
