PEBBLE BEACH
Scenes from the Concours d’Elegance

GALLERY—Originally a small social event paired with a road race through the pine and cypress forests of Pebble Beach, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and Pebble Beach Automotive Week have grown into the top-ranking collector car competition in the world. The Concours is not a contest of speed, but of elegance. Automobiles and motorcycles are judged for their historical accuracy, their technical merit and their style—and the best garner reward and recognition. LA Car ace photographer Albert Wong was there to visually capture the prize winners at the Concours.

Rick Lorenzen’s Price Automobilia collection

LA CAR REPORT—Time travel requires finding worm holes in the space-time continuum, having a thorough understanding of the quantum physics, attaining the ability to move faster than the speed of light, mastering transportation of particles and a plethora of other technical achievements which heretofore have not even been discovered, much less attempted. For those attending the June Motor Press Guild luncheon hosted by Mecum Auctions, the time travel required a short trip down the 710, and entering Rick Lorenzen’s Price Automobilia collection in Dominguez Hills.
