Jim’s Blog: Sights from Monterey

The ACC team is back in the office and busy crunching numbers and processing photos from last week’s Monterey auctions and events. We’ll be diving into results in our next issue of the ACC, and in our sister publication, Sports Car Market. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite shots from Car Week 2019.

This custom Mustang looked great at McCall’s Motorworks Revival at the Monterey Jet Center. Sure, that’s no 289… but it still has a horse on it.

 

You don’t often see a vintage Bentley being chased by the Chrysler Thunderbolt concept — except in Monterey. These cars were participating in the Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance.

 

This very clean GT350 H looked great in front of a P-51 and B-25 at McCall’s Motorworks Revival at the Monterey Jet Center.

 

Clean ’69 Camaro makes its way to the block at Mecum’s Monterey auction.

 

The Saleen S7 is a striking car — but even more so in red. This twin-turbo example brought $643,000 at RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction.

 

Understated colors are best on Full Classics — this was one of two 1932 Duesenberg Model J Victoria Coupes designed by Gordon Buehrig and built by Judkins. It did not sell at RM Sotheby’s for $1.25m.

 

Fred Buess fires up his Stanley — literally — for its steam-powered trip across the block at Gooding’s Pebble Beach auction.

The Exotics on Broadway car show was a huge draw this year — showing off all kinds of exotics, including a handful of Ford GTs.

The Pebble Beach Concours had a special Hot Rod Cover Car Class — this is Tommy Ivo’s 1925 Ford Roadster Pickup, owned by Jack and Linda Rosen of Rancho Mirage, CA. It was featured on the cover of Hot Rod Magazine in August, 1957.
