Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance: 2021 Blog

2021 was an important year for the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

1 - 2020 was canceled due to covid concerns. The Concours had only been canceled once before in 1960, due to weather.

2 - There was a special class of cars: The Best of Show Reunion. All of the previous years Best of Show winners were invited to participate. 41 cars were entered.

The Best of Show Reunion was not a judged class; no doubt because the logistics behind doing so would have been formidable. Still it made the 2021 Pebble Concours memorable.

Lamborghini had been given the cold shoulder in the past by the Pebble Beach Concours selection committees - perhaps it was their bad boy image - but that has been changing in recent years. For 2021 the 50th anniversary of the Lamborghini Countach was celebrated.

It's always great to see old race cars on the lawn at Pebble Beach. It's even better when they are accompanied by their transporter as in the case of this 1931 Miller 122 DePalma-Miller Special.

Speaking of old race cars, the 1935 Duesenberg SJ Mormon Meteor Speedster was back in 2021 as part of the Best of Show Reunion class. It was a crowd favorite when it won BoS in 2007 and it impressed again in 2021 with owner Harry Yeaggy at the wheel. As the song goes, "some guys have all the luck".

This 1954 Ferrari 375 MM Scagletti Coupe made headlines in 2014 when it won Best of Show for two reasons: It is the only Ferrari to win the award and it is only one of two post war cars to be awarded BoS since 1955.
