Bugatti, Mercedes Benz, Rolls-Royce, Pierce-Arrow, Duesenberg ... nothing says classic elegance better than these fabulous cars from the golden age of automobiles, 1920-1950. Their curvaceous lines combined with luxury, horsepower and awesome hood ornaments put them in a class by themselves. They have been owned by few and appreciated by the rest for their engineering, amazing designs, use of materials (some were made of wood) and attention to detail. Armed with a manually operated Nikon and many rolls of Kodachrome slide film, I attended four Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance car shows during the 1980s. Few places in the world offer a more spectacular venue for celebrating these cars than the eighteenth fairway at the Pebble Beach Golf Links, Monterey, California.
