Huntington Beach Concours - A Salute to Ferrari

On Sunday, June 11th, we had a beautiful day and a turn out of about 40 Ferraris for the 10th Annual Huntington Beach Concours d'Elegance charity car show for the Children's Library. It was a great show with over 180 classic cars and motorcycles displayed on the grass in the Central Library Park. The event was supported by Ferrari of North America, the Ferrari Club of America Southwest Region, the Ferrari Owner's Club, and Beverly Hills Ferrari, who brought two new cars to put on display. Among the classic Ferraris were a new 456 GT and a F512 M.

Food vendors were busy all day, and the crowd was entertained by the Huntington Beach Concert Band and a five piece Jazz band.

The oldest Ferrari displayed was a 1951 340 America Coupe (ex-Parravano), owned by Gordon Thomas. Mike Sheehan of European Auto Sales brought several cars, among which was the 1970 LeMans 512M race car, beautifully restored in yellow, as it ran for the Belgian team.
