The official end-of-summer provided another banner month for car-loving folks with a number of great events on the Monterey peninsula during the Monterey Car Week, as well as a handful of smaller events across the country. Read on to find out about a few of the events at which the HVA was present.
Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours on the Avenue
At this year’s Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours on the Avenue, the THIS CAR MATTERS award went to a 1967 Toyota 2000GT. Dan and Kathy Egan of Arroyo Grande, California, have owned the vehicle since 1974.
Further inland, over at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, the FIVA/HVA Preservation award went to this stunning 1960 Aston Martin DB4GT owned by Jack E. Thomas of Missouri.
This year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance saw a shake-up of the old guard with Best of Show honors going to a post-war Ferrari. The FIVA Preservation Award for post-war vehicles also went to a Ferrari, this time the 1957 250 Testa Rossa Scaglietti Spyder owned by Tom Hartley, Jr. of Derbyshire, United Kingdom. Meanwhile, back on the pre-war front, the FIVA Preservation Award for pre-war vehicles went to this 1930 Ruxton C Baker-Raulang Roadster owned by Fred Guyton of St. Louis, Missouri.
