Concours on the Avenue

Ferrari 250 SWB

For those that had the chance to visit Carmel-by-the-Sea today, you would not have missed THE event of the day! Today was the Concours on the Avenue! This low-key event is held every Tuesday prior to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and a must attend for those fortunate enough to spend the week in the Monterey peninsula!

Today offered a unique display by GTO Engineering with the Ferrari 250 SWB tribute car. Those walking by may have noticed the car was, well, in pieces. Wheels were taken off, brakes missing, and top end of the engine taken apart. Why? As our buddy Steve Kittrell explained it’s all part of an interactive experience showing the show goers what goes into servicing a classic Ferrari. And as the day went on, the car was slowly reassembled into working order! At 3 PM the Ferrari crossed the stage with engine roaring!
