La Jolla Concours d’Elegance on April 10-12
It is fitting that when translated into Spanish, La Jolla means “the jewel,” because La Jolla truly is the diamond of the West Coast. La Jolla has become the embodiment of luxury, class and style in San Diego. The chic allure of La Jolla’s avenues has drawn the finest automobiles to this coastal town for the eleventh year at the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance and The La Jolla Motor Car Classic at the Concours.
The La Jolla Concours d’Elegance, held at Ellen Browning Scripps Park on April 10-12, features various types of fine automobile gems. Past years have showcased horseless carriages, Italian marques, British marques, Woodies, 50’s classics, American sports cars (with a salute to GM on their 100th anniversary), and the automobiles of Carroll Shelby. Spectators from all over the nation come to the breathtaking shores of La Jolla to view their favorite classics. This year, the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance will be Celebrating Coachbuilt Classics of the 30’s and 40’s.
On Friday, April 10, you can enjoy an intimate soiree while perusing a spectacular display of extraordinary Rolls-Royce automobiles, incredible entertainment, scrumptious culinary bites and a wide selection of sophisticated cocktails, wines and champagnes. Purchase your tickets early as limited tickets are available and this event sold out last year.
The La Jolla Tour d’Elegance kicks off on Saturday at the San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park, one of the finest museum collections of automobiles on the West Coast, offering special exhibits which tell a compelling story of how cars have influenced our lives over the years. We will motor on from the Museum, cruising 20 miles through San Diego’s most scenic beautiful locations to the next stop of the tour, Bill Evan’s Private Collection Garage, where we will step back in time to visit a world class collection of vintage automobiles and an incredible display of memories from a Grand and Elegant era of the past. From Bill Evan’s Garage, the tour travels to Chuck Spielman’s Only Yesterday Museum, a private showroom of vintage automobiles covering the period from the 30’s to the present, as well as military memorabilia from throughout the last century. Finishing the La Jolla Tour d’Elegance, we will enjoy a savory lunch reception and awards ceremony held at the luxurious Grand Del Mar! If you still want to participate in the La Jolla Tour d’Elegance but don’t want to drive your automobile, enjoy the view from the top deck as a passenger in our Double Decker Tour Bus as we travel through our San Diego stops…The tour is revving up to be a fun and unforgettable ride.
