4th Annual Palos Verdes Concours

Sunday May 5th, a beautiful day and a fabulous array of cars of all types and from all countries. This has turned out to be one of the areas premier events and while there was not a strong showing of Ferrari?s we did have representation from Ron Pinto?s early 212, Fred Bogardus? exceptionally original 308GT4, three 365?s - (2) 2+2?s and (1) GTC - a 275GTB, several 308?s and 328?s, a few 348?s, a 512TR and Marshall Leib?s 288GT. All in all a very nice turn out.

The displays were grouped nicely at a distance so that crowd control was very comfortable. A number of the Ferrari group picnicked in the center of the display and we all really had a casually good time. The sponsors had a nice selection of food available from hamburgers/hot dogs to an entire barbecue cart with the greatest sandwiches. I would like to thank Rita Bayer and Ed Clay for a job well done. The outcome of judging was Steve Mattes? 365GT 2+2 taking a first and Judd Goldfeders? 365GTC a second, for which they joined the field parade and received a very nice trophy.
