This turned out to be an exceptional event. I'm already looking forward to next year's concours. I think everyone had a great time. They parked us in the Sea Terrace Park which had some amazingly thick and wonderful grass. Just the car club section had some great stuff, wonderful Lamborghinis, old MGs, interesting Porsches, Mercedes 300 roadsters, Packards (in the photo below, you can just see a 1934 Packard Dual Cowl Phaeton on the right side of my car in the background- this car was for sale for $440,000! The concours section was much grander, of course. The organizers said just the "exotic/custom" class alone had 11 million dollars worth of cars in it.

It was a good day for Jensens. I was very happy to find that the Jensen Healeys were well received and I heard many nice compliments from spectators all day. My humble JH even received an award, although the actual reason was rather vague, it was simply called the Car Corral Award.
