Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours on the Avenue
If you are planning on attending, one thing you may want to consider is the Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours on the Avenue. This event, held Tuesday, August, 11 features multi marques from 1940-1973 and Porsches and Ferraris through 1989. In recognition of Porsche’s 60th Anniversary there are over sixty Porsches currently entered. Bruce Anderson (noted Porsche author and one of this year’s judges) had the following to say,
“This is the third year for this great event. The first year it was Multi Marques only, but that did include some Porsches and Ferraris. Lat year we had two separate shows: one for The Multi Marque cars and another for the Ferraris and Porsches. This year all three shows are combined on one day and Porsche is being Featured, we already have over sixty car entered.”
