Rancho Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance 2015 the overview

By far my most favorite auto show in the Los Angeles area has got to be the Rancho Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance.  This is a tightly curated show, few if any basic rides, it focuses on the premiere rides of days gone by.  Two categories, restored and survivors that they call “Preservation” that are all original and just detailed out to show quality.

Make the jump for a few of my favorite cars of the day.

My favorite preservation class car…the 1919 Buick #10 Tonneau, showing its age and patina
