September 25, 2016 — Red Rock Country Club hosted a bevy of beauties on their perfect greens for this year’s Concours d’Elegance — 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The weather was perfect. The cars were amazing. The Concours d’Elegance features an impressive showing of European highlights and pre-1950s classic motorcars; all showcased on their lush green fairway overlooking the Red Rock Country Club House.
The showcased cars cover a hundred years of automotive design and technology. Some cars there take a crank to get started – others are cranking 700 horsepower. But, All-in-all, vehicles of every shape and size were the eye candy de jour.
The list of cars to be seen at the Concours is extensive. It includes limited editions from Aston Martin, Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Lotus, Jaguar, and Audi. Also included are pre-war to early-fifties American nameplates such as Packard, Cord, Duesenberg, Auburn, Lincoln, Cadillac, and LaSalle.
Tons and tons of chrome. The craftsmanship in these old machines is impressive.
Old-timers were looking great. There were several pristine cars at the show. With their big wheels and steel bodies, these cars were designed to last.

It was great meeting legendary car designer Peter Brock, of Shelby Daytona Coupe fame, among others.
The Shelby Daytona Coupe is a stunning car, timeless in its design. I’ll take mine in blue, please.
Fifty years ago, on July 4, 1965, a car created by a handful of California hot-rodders won America its first FIA manufacturers’ road-racing championship. That machine, the 1964 Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe, was the brainchild of designer Peter Brock. From Carroll Shelby’s shop in Los Angeles, it went to Daytona, Sebring, and Europe. And chiefly, it took down Ferrari, winner of 10 FIA sports-car titles in the previous 12 years.

The Lamborghini LP-700 Aventador coupe. My all-time favorite car to drive. It’s a genuine supercar that is super comfortable – even for a six ft. tall guy like me with long legs. Every time I drive this car, I am reminded of its sheer awesomeness. Thanks, Tom.
