The day before the Concours d' Elegance in Pebble Beach, it seems that everyone with an expensive car is here. There is no distinction, they are just plain that: expensive.
People are walking up and down Ocean Avenue in Carmel-by-the-Sea, our main street, looking at them. Your ordinary everyday car should not even get near this street today, you would feel, well, you know. This is the day to show it off, and you really need one to show off. Competition is stiff.
Naturally, everyone wants to park it on Ocean Avenue too so people can admire it. Maybe that's why they drive around and around town like they do in Manhattan, they just don't want to leave it on a mere side street. Although these are packed with formidable cars as well.
AND THAT'S WHERE I FOUND THIS RED CARPET TREATMENT...LITERALLY.
This was right in front of Little Napoli restaurant on Dolores (my street) & 7th (I'm between 5th & 6th, if you want to come visit).
And this was taken on Ocean Avenue on Saturday, August 21.
Check out that license plate, above!!!
