Fast Times in California

Checked two things off my bucket list by attending the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance followed by two days of America’s Cup races in San Francisco Bay

Cars

The most amazing cars in the world in one place, Pebble Beach 

 

Ferrari

Walked into the RM Auction in Monterey as this 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 Nart Spyder was being sold for a cool $27.5 million. Second highest price ever paid for a car
