This weekend we attended the Palos Verdes Concourse d'Elegance at Trump National Golf Club. For those who know about cars, this event is "An exhibition of Automotive Excellence featuring Shelby Cobras, plus 200 American and European classic, exotic, and specialty automobiles" (according to the official website). For the rest of us it was "millions of dollars worth of fancy cars parked on millions of dollars worth of fancy grass for the taking of millions of photos and watching husbands' eyes water in appreciation" (according to me).
My mom and dad went with us (see here Senor and his father-in-law peering into one of the fancies).
The amazing thing about the really beautiful examples are that even the details are poster-worthy. This is written on the engine of one of the Best of Shows, and it reminds me of vintage french liquer posters.
Reflections can be a problem when photographing immaculately shined automobiles...but sometimes the reflection's the Thing.
The above won Senor's heart. He used the phrase "hands down", which, for Senor, means business. Hands down the best thing here. Or something much more dramatic and interesting than that, but you get the idea.
I loved up some grills.
Overall, I think Senor was most satisfied with the outting. We all got our Fancy on and appreciated the automobile-as-lawn-jewelry, had a delicious lunch, and then napped uncontrollably. It was a good day.
I do wish all of the other people had gotten their Fancy on... These are Cobras and Ferraris and Jaguars, people. We dress up for them, and of course, for Mr. Trump.
