Palo Verdes Concours D'Elegance

Palo Verdes Concours D’Elegance

While I am an advocate of all car shows, it’s obvious that there are a few that stand above the rest. Without a doubt the Concours D’Elegance car shows stand out.

Palos Verdes Concours dElegance

The Palo Verdes Conours D’Elegance has upheld the long tradition of fine cars shows and is now in it’s 25th year. While much of the focus is on classic and antique cars there is much to offer for aviation buffs also with two dozen vintage planes also on display.

This year the Palos Verdes Concours D’elegance will focus on California Coach Builders and Farraris. For more details on the car classes that will be displayed check out our sister site 2018 Palos Verdes Counors D’Elegance

Hope to see your there!

Elvis Presley 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SEL

Elvis Presley 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SEL

While the Barret-Jackson Auctions are not really a Northern California event this continues to be one of my favorite Automotive events to monitor. the quality and history of the vehicles that pass thourhg this auction make is a “Must See” event. A good example is this years auction of some of collector John Staluppi’s vehicles. One that caught my eye is a 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280 SEL that was originally purchased by none other than “the King” himself Elvis Presley!

1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL

This vehicle was purchased new by Elvis which he kept to his death on August 16, 1977. The Mercedes was kept in Elvis’ garage until it was moved to a museum where it has been on display for the last 40 years. 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL Specifications

Barret-Jackson always has a list of some of the most fascinating and unique cars at it’s auctions. As I come across some of the more interesting cars I’ll post them here on

Diablo Valley Mustang Asssociation

The Diablo Valley Mustang Association is proud to present our sixteenth annual Show and Shine, on May 3, 2014. This year we are celebrating our Club’s 35th and Mustang’s 50th anniversaries. The show is open to all Ford products. A portion of the proceeds from the show will be donated to the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. At last year’s show we collected 847 pounds of food and donated a large portion of our proceeds to the Food Bank.

The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano works to end hunger and increase access to nutritious food for low-income individuals and families through a comprehensive group of programs that combat hunger and its causes. They serve 149,000 people every month directly and through 180 affiliated agencies. We are seeking donations for the door prizes, grand prizes and trinkets for the “goody bag” each entrant receives. A donation such as a car related item or a gift certificate of nominal value will give your company name recognition among our participants and show your enthusiasm to our Ford devotees. All donations will be acknowledged with a thank you note and a listing in the show program.

Palo Alto Lions

Palo Alto Lions

Palo Alto, CA, September, 2012—Because of a recent change in policy, Stanford University athletic practice fields will no longer be the home of the Palo Alto Concours d’Elegance. Ray Purpur, Deputy Director of Athletic, Physical Education and Recreation who is a strong supporter of the Concours, informed the organization earlier this month that the Concours will have to seek a new venue going forward into 2013.

The Concours Executive Director, Christine Cheshire, indicated they were aware of a pending University change in policy was forth coming. However, they were not prepared to receive notice so soon. The Palo Alto Concours d’ Elegance has been held on Stanford Athletic practice fields for the past 38 years.
The Concours, the charitable arm of the Palo Alto Host Lions Club was formed 47 years ago by a group of prominent business men from Palo Alto and Menlo Park who were members of the Palo Alto Host Lions Club. Their goal was to create an annual fund raiser that would help their club raise money for local charities.

Since its inception 47 years ago, the Concours has raised and donated over 1.78 million dollars to over 41 charities within their local community who receive little to no other funding from any other source. (more…)
