Its been almost two weeks since the 1938 Mercedes-Benz 540K was crowned the King of All Cars. We have taken the last two weeks to reflect and digest all things Monterey. It was a hectic but productive five days on the Peninsula. Turtle Garage fit one hundred pounds into a five pound bag. On the auction front, we attended RM, Gooding, Bonhams, and Mecum. Through some good connections and friends, we were able to secure tickets to most key events including the Quail. From a meal perspective we did it all! We had breakfast with Wayne Carini prior to picking up his Concours d’ Lemons ride from Dodi’s auto sales in Monterey.We had lunch in Carmel at Le Bicyclette. We had dinner at Stillwater at the Lodge. We watched the tour depart. We attended the seminars. We went to Concours d’ Lemons. We even made it to Dawn Patrol. Of course we also attended the grand finale at Pebble on Sunday. It was a full week!
What follows is a photographic journal of a hectic but fulfilling five days in Monterey. Each photo tells a story and we have added captions.
