    Just back to London from my annual 'pilgrimage' to Bonneville, and then onto Monterey.

    Terrific time, and thousands of pics. I thought I'd share a small selection with you.....

    Nice shots!!!! Hope you had a great time and I am sorry you had to see the car in the 4th image down. Haha!!! That last shot seem like it was colorized because it's supersaturation. That's the only place on earth I believe colors could be that vivid.

    Wonderful pictures. I love the lack of stuff in the background. Believe it or not, it's hard to get during speedweek, there a lot of people, cars, cones, etc. So nice work.
     
  9. As an aussie I hate to give a pom credit for anything but those photos are shit hot thanks.

    Unfortunately I was at Pebble Beach, yes !

    I flew straight on to San Francisco from SLC, and then down to Monterey for the week's events. The racing at Laguna was terrific, but Pebble was pretty horrific (6th time there - I never learn !).

    The tragedy is to see magnficently engineered machinery reduced to pampered items of jewellery.

    Here's the winner.

    Being pampered.

    The coveted Best of Show trophy at Pebble Beach went, as many expected, to veteran entrant Bob Lee’s dramatic Horch 853 Cabriolet by Voll & Ruhrbeck, emerging from a monumental in-house restoration which is rumoured to have included a chroming bill for half a million dollars (there’s rather a lot of it). Whoever commissioned this leviathan back in 1937 must have been quite a character- it looks even longer than Bob’s Daimler Double Six which took overall honours in 2006.


    Please tell me this isn't true.
     
  24. Tim,

    its Pebble Beach....its true...The Mormon Meteor that won 2 years ago was bought for like $5 million a couple of years before, and then they spent about the same again on the restoration....

    Half a million on chroming, though. Robert Lee must have very deep pockets.....
