"Classic Car Week" huge real estate draw for Carmel-by-the-Sea

Real Estate Broker/Owner CA#01772851 HI#RB21268

Referred to as "Classic Car Week", this is the week that Carmel-by-the-Sea pretty much becomes all about some of the most fantastic cars in the world. For example, today Ocean Avenue, the main street of our story book town was closed for the annual Pebble Beach Tour d' Elegance. This is where practically all of  Sunday's entries in the Pebble Beach Concours d' Elegance at Pebble Beach will take a drive around the Monterey Peninsula and end up parking on Ocean Avenue in Carmel-by-the-Sea while its owners take in a lavish luncheon at Devendorf Park.

This is the best bargain of this week's mostly VERY expensive festivities where one can see these incredible cars for FREE. And people flock to Carmel-by-the-Sea to do so.  And they can watch these million-dollar-and-more cars roar!

And, of course, my real estate brokerage office is right there in the middle of town. Yes, this brings thousands of people with deep pockets to our area, people who will hopefully fall in love not only with the cars that they see - yes, there are car auctions - but also that they will return and look at the Monterey Peninsula as a place to buy their first, second or third home.

Me? I just pretty much parked my car this week and walked all over to meet people on the street or at various gatherings. Plus I have taken so many photos, it's hard to give preference to some cars over others.

So here are a few of these marvels that especially enthralled me:

1927 Packard 336 Roadster

If you look hard enough, you can see my reflection in the Talbot.

Usually, I get someone to take my photo in front of my favorite. This time, I took my own inadvertantly in the reflection of the Talbot Lago.

Pete Xavier - It's truly incredible the cars one sees not only participating in the events, but those who come to town and just park like everyone else.

You're not wearing a hat, Hella! So vintage special cars. And you went to great pains to get the names right, and that must have been a ton of work.

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents - My "normal" hat is getting a little frayed. Have been looking for something new/stylish. Probably in Honolulu over New Years? As to the classic cars, it was hard to choose between the many participants, so I paid more attention this year. Nothing like strolling around a couple of hundred of them with a Latte in one hand and my iPhone in the other trying to get a clear shot.
