Can the Desert Concorso Become a Top-Tier Concours?

By Yoav Gilad / 1 Apr 2014 Read More

The inaugural Desert Concorso was held this past weekend in Palm Desert, California, about two hours drive east from Los Angeles. There was an interesting mix of cars, and lovers of Italian machinery couldn't have been disappointed. It was a gorgeous, sunny day in the desert and walking on to the green you were immediately greeted by a fleet of Ferraris.

As racer Andrea de Adamich says, "I didn't just race on the track; I also had my street GTA to tool around in."

Kirby proudly states that he’s “not interested in cars; I’m in the category of obsessed. I like to think I just popped out into the world wearing a Formula 1 t-shirt making car noises, and I’d honestly say the reality wasn’t too dissimilar to that.” His dad is a car nut too, so even as a youngster pushed around in a pram, Kirby attended club events, Aussie V8 Supercar races, and car shows.

As I watch those Alfas and Ferraris cross the block in Paris this weekend, I will be thinking back fondly on that stunning assembly of cars in the Italian countryside. In restoring and preserving his cars, Francesco accepted nothing less than excellence. I know that the lucky individuals with the winning bids this weekend will also appreciate the cars' former caretaker for his uncompromising standards.

For some, the dedication and passion invested into their vintage car approaches fanatical levels, much like those who push their limits in the ocean. Whether racing from Molokai to Oahu or paddle-boarding for miles and miles off California's coast, being in the ocean can become an obsession. For Mr. Casey Annis, Vintage Racecar editor, his 1962 Alfa Romeo Giulia Spider Veloce 1600 allows him to bridge the gap between his two pastimes—classic cars and the ocean.

In real estate, location is everything, and surely there’s none better than a centuries-old castle among vineyards outside of Modena, Italy. What lies inside Castello di Panzano Castelfranco Emilia transcends even this bucolic location. Collezione Righini is one of the finest private automotive collections in the world, housing several landmark Alfas including Tazio Nuvolari’s 8C 2300, and the very first car that Enzo Ferrari built after departing Alfa Romeo.

When it comes, it is hard to swim against the desires of knowing more and wanting to eventually acquire the subject of whatever kick I may be on lately. Most recently this kick has come in the form of vintage 4x4s, which began when I saw this old Alfa Romeo Matta at the Best of France and Italy show a few weeks ago.

Who could say no to an invitiation to take part in a drive with four classic Alfas? Owners of local Alfa Romeo restoration shop Alfarium in Budapest, Hungary, and two of their friends grabbed their beloved cars (and I grabbed my camera) to head out of the city without any particular destination. We simply wanted to enjoy what might be the last warm and sunny Sunday afternoon of this year.

For a perfect autumn classic car gathering you might imagine a mix of cars from Mini Coopers and Beetles to Bugatti Type 35s and Ferrari 275 GTBs.
