Monterey Car Week...Mecca, Part 1

That's's now really a "Monterey Car Week."

Not long ago, it was 3-4 days centered around the Monterey Historics and Pebble Beach Concour with some auctions thrown in for good measure. Now it's evolved into an entire week of car stuff for those addicted. Starting this year for the first the time the public was invited to attend the Monterey Motorsports Pre-Reunion event at Laguna Seca the weekend before the big event. In past the Pre-Historics were reserved for the racers...not so now. There is a name change as well, it was the Monterey Historics before, now it's called the Monterey Motorsports Reunion.

Blog follower, John Goriup attended the Pre-Reunion and is sharing his awesome photos of the event.

The Altec Lansing IMSA GTU 914/6.

The Brumos/Peter Gregg 935 with a Shelby Daytona Coupe hiding behind. Not this one, but a Daytona recently sold for 7 Mil. and the owner was driving the heck out of this one.

The ex-Pedro Rodriguez 002-917...Wow!

A flat-eight cylinder RS-61 with a Scarab in the background.

As you can see in the photos, not a horde of spectators knew about this event. It was a great time to get up close, check out the machinery and take photos as well as watch the racing. Don't tell anyone, but the cost of the local hotel rooms and admission fee is a lot lower this weekend as well.

I have more "Cool" photos from John that I'll be posting as we go.
