Sourcing Los Angeles Culture

The 2015 Concours d’Elegance is the Perfect Fathers Day Outing

If you live in the Los Angeles area, you are in luck because the most excellent fathers day event actually happens in this town. What better way to spend your Sunday on Rodeo Drive looking at luxurious vintage cars from all over the world. We caught up with Bruce Meyer, who holds an important role in Beverly Hills’s history. Not only was Bruce a founding chairman of the Petersen Automotive Museum, he also was part of the first ever Concours d’Elegance which started 22 years ago at Beverly Hills High School. The event was originally founded to raise money to restore Beverly Hills’s first fire truck, which will be at this years Concours d’Elegance. One of the most exciting cars to be on the look out for is the 1938 Alfa Romeo 8c2900 Touring Spider that was once owned by Ralph Lauren. I personally have not seen it in person, but after googling this car, I must see it in person. The 1938 Alfa Romeo 8c2900 Touring Spider is magnificent to say the least, and one of its kind. Other notable cars includes a 1951 Talbot Grand Sport Frina, a french beauty owned by current Petersen Automotive Museum Chairman, Peter Miller. Bruce kept us updated on what cars were going to be featured and let us know that he will be bringing his 1935 Bright Yellow Bugatti (in picture above) to the show. Being known to be an avid car collector, we were curious on Bruce’s automobile taste. Well, he is a Porsche gentleman but drives his Chevrolet Suburban for his daily routines. It was a great honor to talk to such an influential individual to Beverly Hills’s history, and we cannot wait to see his Bugatti tomorrow. On a side note, they are in the process of remodeling the Petersen Automotive Museum and it will re-open on December 5th, so mark your calendars. Until then, make sure to spend your Sunday at this years Concours d’Elegance and enjoy very rare beautiful cars from all over the world with the ones that you love.
