The Carmel Concours on the Avenue 2018 was held Tuesday, August 21st on the downtown streets of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
A field of more than 175 automobiles were on display at the 11th edition of the Carmel-by-the-Sea Concours on the Avenue, vying for 14 major awards and Best of Show. This year’s event presented multi-marques from 1940 to 1973, in addition to Porsche and Ferrari from the beginning through 1989. Similar to previous years, Carmel-By-The-Sea’s Ocean Avenue was closed to traffic and sixteen blocks of downtown were filled with collector cars and related motorized items. As always, an interesting mix of automobiles were displayed in front of Carmel’s charming shops, galleries and restaurants.
A great selection of Porsche cars were on display at the 2018 Carmel Concours, including the 1950 Porsche Continental, 1951 Porsche 356 Roadster bodied by Sauter and the Interscope Porsche. In addition to the Porsches, further notable and interesting entrants included 1955 Ferrari 750 Monza Scaglietti Spider, 1954 Ferrari 375 Plus Sutton Spider, 1955 Osca MT4, 1957 Alfa Romeo 1900 SS and the ‘Bardahl Special’ Lola T70 Spyder driven in Can-Am by Dan Gurney.
