This past weekend, the 2014 La Jolla Concours d’Elegance, a yearly antique and vintage car show that showcases old foreign and domestic cars from around the world. This year’s theme centered around the history of European racing, and included most of the big-name car companies: Bentley, Ferrari, Austin-Healey, Porsche, and Rolls-Royce. Everything from the Parisian roots of the first-ever motoring events in the late 1800s to the continental racing phenomenon spreading across Europe through the 1900s and into the modern-day car scene were celebrated.
This weekend is the Concours d’Elegance! This year’s 10th annual event will be celebrating European race and motorcar history with top-of-the-line showcases displaying Ferraris, Bentleys, Rolls-Royce, and many more.
The Blue Book is a proud media sponsor of the Concours this year and will have a booth set up at the event! We will be raffling away an airport ride for 4 people (from your home directly to the San Diego airport) that is valued at $45, courtesy of Martina’s Transportation, as well as a $25 Warwick’s Gift Card – so be sure to stop by and enter to win!
One of the top three most anticipated car shows of the year, the Concours d’Elegance returns to La Jolla on April 11th – 13th, marking its 10th anniversary in production. The event showcases some of the world’s most exquisite automobile displays celebrating the exhilarating history of European Racing – featuring the likes of Bentley, Ferrari, Maserati, and Rolls-Royce. According to Webster, “Concours” comes from the French and means “a crowd or confluence of things; also a park promenade.” The word calls to mind elegance, grandeur, sparkling coaches, and glistening groomed horses, and the renowned La Jolla Concours D’Elegance (previously simply the Motor Car Classic) isn’t too far off from that image today.
THE VOTES ARE IN AND IT’S OFFICIAL, THE LA JOLLA CAR CLASSIC DELIVERS FUN FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY!

The beauty of the world’s finest classic automobiles parked along La Jolla’s picturesque oceanfront cove on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon is a portrait normally reserved for art galleries and movie screens. That it was captured in living color this past weekend is what makes La Jolla ‘The Jewel’ of America’s finest city.
The La Jolla Blue Book hopes you enjoy these pictures and video of the La Jolla Car Classic as much as the community of La Jolla and all its’ visitors and residents enjoy attending this one-of-a-kind event each year.
