Palos Verdes Concours d'Elegance September 14, 2014

Innovation is the theme of this years Palos Verdes Concours d'Elegance to be held September 14 at the Trump National Golf Club. This isn't a free event and you can save a bit of money if you pre-purchase your tickets online.

Among the tasty treats at this years show will be the life size Hot Wheels Darth Vader car pictured above.  After making the toy car they thought...what the heck and built a life size one on a 'vette chassis.  Wicked and drivable is the results.

Also for our viewing pleasure will be the fastest Motorcycle that set a land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1966.  The Gyronaut X-1 set that record with a speed of 245.667MPH.  Of course its more of a low slung bullet with all the fairings, but still was a 2 wheeled device so it was classed as a motorcycle.  Amazing stuff they did back in the day.
All the details you could possibly want are on the Palos Verdes Concours d'Elegance web site.  Map of Trump National Golf Club HERE.

Of course I'll be there.  Count on a gazillion pics posted once its all said and done on flickr.
