Monterey Car Week wrapped up yesterday with the annual gathering on the lawn – the Pebble Beach Concours. Pebble has always been prime time for car purists, representing the ultimate pinnacle of classic American and European cars. Seeing these regal pre and post-war classics, most of which are painstakingly restored and coach built, sprawled on the greens of the world famous golf course, is a heavenly sight.

Many have spent millions, and still haven’t “won” Pebble’s prestigious Best in Show. But Jon Shirley is now a two-time winner thanks to yesterday’s historic victory with his 1954 Ferrari. It marked the first time a post-war car has won Pebble Beach.

According to Autoweek’s Mark Vaughn, “This is a big deal in the elite classic car collection and restoration world. There were judges, let’s just say some judges, who had said that a post-war car would never win Pebble, let alone a post-war Ferrari”

But it happened yesterday on a classic foggy summer day on the Monterey Peninsula.

Ferrari enjoyed a huge week of publicity at Pebble Beach . Last Thursday, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for an auction-record $38.115 million at the Bonhams auction. You sure could build a bunch of Ridler-winners for that kind of scratch!

We’ll have complete coverage of Monterey Car Week in a future issue of the Goodguys Goodtimes Gazette. For the first time ever, we sent a reporter there to capture all the excitement, including the Monterey Motorsports Reunion at Laguna Seca.
