Quick recap from Monterey:
Tuesday 08/13 - Carmel Concours on the Avenue : Derby was shining like a star this year! After last year's win on the Avenue, I entered Derby again this year and had such a great time sharing Derby's new refresh engine. The class we were in was a little different than last year. We were in the "Foreign Family Favorites". As much as we received lots of smiles and comments of people reminiscing their happy experiences with the BMW 1600, who could resist a 1969 VW 21 window BUS as a family favorite? 😁 The VW Bus that was parked next to us won the award along with this strange little baby Blue Mazda.
Wednesday 08/14 - Little Car Show : Derby won a little award from the Little Car Show. I did fall in love with this beautifully restored Chamonix GT tho.... 😍
Thursday 08/15 - Enjoyed spectating and having fun lunches, dinners, and drinks with 02 friends and other car enthusiasts such as the DWA Crew, Magnus Walker, car photographer Michael Alan Ross, etc, and of course, hanging with my parents 😉.
Friday 08/16 - Legends of the Autobahn: I accidentally entered Derby in the wrong class, but we had a great time hanging out with Bimmer friends!
Saturday 08/17 - Headed home back North on trailer to avoid the crazy crowd down in Monterey. I love my little town of Monterey, but the traffic definitely gets gnarly during car week! 😉
Had a really nice time this year and I'm thinking next year for Monterey will be about spectating and no car shows during the week. Its so stressful! LOL!
