The Night Before Monterey!

It's the day before the trip to the Monterey peninsula for our week of auto fun. We've got an agenda drawn with some of the best auto events in the world... Thursday we will be taking in the Tour d'Elegance where the participants of the Concours d'Elegance will be taking their drive and winding up in downtown Carmel. I haven't been to this event, but really look forward to seeing these cars on the street, not the rarefied air of the 18th fairway. Friday will be our day dedicated to the art of the Italian cars at Concourso Italiano. Now that they are back on a golf course, it looks like we missed the best year as last year they were on the hot tarmac of the Monterey airport. We are hoping we run into Valentino Balboni at the Concourso... now that he is retired and has a new Lambo named after him, maybe he'll be at the event. Saturday is dedicated to just hanging around the peninsula, probably catching the auction crowd downtown and possibly the street event in Pacific Grove.
Sunday is the big day. I am anticipating the best Concours d'Elegance of my lifetime... with Bentley and Bugatti (my two favorite automakers) as the featured builders, I do not know how any other event could top this one.
