Deco delights on the cards for Palos Verdes concours

| 29 Jan 2012

The Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance – to be held at Trump National Golf Club, Rancho Palos Verdes, California on Sunday 16 September – will highlight classic French curves, according to Chairman Peter Kunoth.

The Grand Marshals will be Peter and Merle Mullin, owners of the Mullin Automotive Museum in Ventura and best of show winners at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

"Our featured marque will be Delahaye, which made some of the most luxurious and elegant classic French cars," said Exhibit Chairman Ray Johnson. "We will feature the cars of coachbuilders or carrossiers, famous for their graceful and sometimes flamboyant designs, such as Delahaye, Bugatti, Chapron, Pourtout, Figoni et Falaschi, Franay, Letourneur et Marchand, Delages, Hispano-Suiza, Talbot-Lagos and Voisin."

In addition to viewing more than 200 exhibited cars, visitors can see craftsmen at work in Restoration Alley, shop for gifts, dine in the elegant Club House, and examine show cars in the display areas. The Concours will be preceded by a Road Rallye on Saturday 15 September.
