Default Pebble Beach Concours

Did anyone make it to this? I just heard Adam Corolla talking about it and I'm really bummed I didn't have the ***** to peel off $175 for a ticket ...

Apparently Bugatti unveiled the "new" Veyron there. It's a "roadster" now (targa top). and they sold the rights to buy the first one for something like 3.2 million.

I just noticed something... Does anybody find it odd that one of the awesomest cars in the universe uses rather boring log manifolds?

Didn't make it out, was at Laguna Seca watching vintage F1 cars tear it up... for free. Woe is me Hopefully next year the Historics and Pebble Beach won't occupy the same timeframe. If so, I'll just skip Sunday at the track and go there instead.

I'd rather go watch budget racing than a bunch of cars worth as much as a hosue.

Me too, but I wouldn't file the Monterey Historics under budget...

here's some of the spectators' cars under the shelter at the Embassy Suites.
