Pebble Beach's Best in Show Winner Represents a Monumental Shift

By Yoav Gilad / 22 Aug 2014 / 7 Comments Read More

In many ways, this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance was just like every year prior. The blue-blazer-wearing, straw-hatted crowd strolled in as classical music gently wafted over the audience and manicured lawn. The OEMs occupied the lower-level suites in the lodge that allowed their guests to sit in style and avoid sullying their Tod’s. The coffee was warm and unburned, landscape foggy grey, and cars buffed to perfection...

When I was twenty-four I bought my first motorcycle: a 1972 Honda CB750. This bike did two things for me. It completely sold me on the quality and absolute value of a Honda motorcycle; they are absolutely bulletproof, beautiful, and reliable. Secondly, it hooked me on riding motorcycles for life.

Some say the track will be demolished soon to make way for a modern sport arena and this would imply the end of this event.

This boxy Benz looks as if it can traverse any terrain in the world, but it has only covered 34,500 miles. That's due to its 14-year residence in a private vehicle collection. It comes as no surprise that its current owner states, "The bodywork on this G-Wagen is in excellent condition..."

The mechanic I found was a senior member of the BMW Club in Brisbane and chatting with him one day he mentioned that he had to get rid of one of his cars because he'd bought a new X5. I didn't think much about it but when I decided to buy a daily-driver to commute to work, I called him, saw the car that weekend and bought it on site.
