Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours On The Avenue ... 2013

If you're a Monterey Car Week devotee, the news coming forth about the "Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours On The Avenue" is everything good.

Tired of paying the high and higher prices charged for attending the shows during car week? This is your salvation! It's free to spectators as it's held on the closed streets of Carmel, which becomes a pedestrian walk-about among some of the coolest and nicest cars in the US. With special classes for Porsche as well as Ferrari cars, the show doesn't fall short on offering eye delectable offerings of everything from hot rods to micro-cars. The date: Tuesday, August 13, 2013

According to Doug Freedman, the father of the Carmel Concours, "Our mission statement continues to be our focus."

Sophistication with a dash of fun,
where Authenticity, Originality and Preservation matter
All in a welcoming atmosphere!!!

 Doug says, "Applications for Entry are arriving at a stronger than expected rate for which we are truly appreciative." Doug also says, "Formal agreements are in the works with Brand Partners who bring sponsorship to the event.

THE CYPRESS INN, our highly valued Partner Property, continues to support us in so many ways. A reminder that when you are in need of a Cocktail, Afternoon Tea or a special Lunch or Dinner, please remember the Cypress Inn located in the heart of charming Carmel-by-the Sea where you will enjoy a truly warm welcome in a gracious atmosphere. The Cypress Inn is, without a doubt, the heartbeat of Carmel!

We are truly appreciative so please remember to visit the Tiffany & Co. location nearest you and the team in Carmel when you have personal and special occasion gift-giving needs in the future.
So, what else can you say? Well, it's also for a great cause!

  1. I've never done this event, John. But I will be there this year, with a car in the Historic Trans Am group. I am really looking forward to it. The organizers seem fantastic.

    1. Cool Alex, the quality of cars at this event is equal to and in many cases higher than the other shows that week.

  2. John - would really enjoy attending future shows ! Jonathan and Nancy
