Monterey, CA, July 26, 2019 - The Club at Pasadera (TCAP) is proud to announce the first-ever Concours at Pasadera August 9 from 4-7pm, bringing together a spectacular showcase of collectible cars, specials guests and local legends of the auto world.
Accompanied by free-flowing Champagne and heavy hors d’oeuvres, attendees will enjoy an up-close-and-personal visit with more than 50 beautiful cars in two categories and four award classes: Vintage/Pre-1940 cars; Domestic and International automobiles built before 1990; and Modified vehicles enhanced in design and mechanical performance by the collector. The special category will be Modern Classic 1990-2020, covering a full generation of automobiles reflecting design influences and technical achievements from the recent past, present and future.
Among the diverse array of collectible cars scheduled for showing are vehicles from Aston-Martin, Austin-Healy, Bentley, Buick, Chevrolet, Cobra, Denzel, Ferrari, Ford, Jeep, Jensen, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, MG, Nissan, Panoz, Pontiac, Porsche, VW and more. One car not to be missed is a SEMA exhibition showpiece – a 1950 Buick Woody – as well as a GTO Ferrari, a 1966 VW pickup/Transporter and the new Aston Martin DB11.
Participating as the panel of vetting authorities will be Jeffrey Ernest, Bill Finkbeiner and Eric Keener. Judges include famed collector Gordon McCall, renowned impresario of McCall’s Motorworks Revival at the Monterey Jet Center (at which TCAP’s Executive Chef Colin Moody will be a featured culinary provider) and The Quail; Coppa Bella Motors owner Steve Fremgen, a top Ferrari expert; and Laguna Seca CEO Tim McGrane. Collectively, they have worked a wide range of major events from Concours d’Elegance to Concorso Italiano.
Monterey Motorsports owner Rick Barnett, who is leading the organization for the event, will serve as Master of Ceremonies. Tiffany & Co. is furnishing the awards for exhibitor participation, the four classes and Best of Show.
A limited number of tickets are available and are just $75 for adults 21+ and $35 for children 20 and under. Admission includes valet parking and all hospitality. Tickets go on sale July 18 via https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-concours-at-pasadera-tickets-65594690485.
Among the many sponsors are Elite Auto Films of Monterey, Gene’s Import Auto Body, Hagerty Insurance, Martinelli’s and Porsche of Monterey. Part of the proceeds will benefit the Bridge Restoration Ministry in Pacific Grove, which helps those struggling with addictions and helps restore them back to God, family, work and community.
TCAP Managing Member Chris Laver commented, “Everyone has their own car stories, and it’s these vivid, personal memories that sparked our desire to create our debut Concours while raising funds for an important local cause supported by many of our Club members. We promise everyone a first-class event that is sure to become a must-attend annual attraction.”
Family-friendly. Unbuttoned luxury. The only Jack Nicklaus Signature course on the Central Coast.
And so much more. That’s The Club at Pasadera.
