Join the Fifth Annual Marin Sonoma Concours d'Elegance, as we return to a bygone era when Hollywood set the world's stage; men were men, women were glamorous and the cars they drove were as dazzling and exciting as the lives they led.
Come to the Concours and see the infamous 1960 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud ll Drophead Coupe owned by Elizabeth Taylor and purported to have played a significant role in her blossoming affair with Richard Burton. Picture yourself next to Mae West in her 1934 Duesenberg J-370 sharing a laugh about how "when you're bad, you're better." Take a moment to imagine Jean Harlow driving her 1932 Packard Sport Phaeton, wind in her hair, a winsome smile on her face or Steve McQueen racing his 1961 Cooper T56 Mark ll Formula Junior before his Hollywood bosses forced him to choose between racing and acting.
We invite you to join us Sunday, May 19 to discover the cars that were as fast and seductive as the lives of the Hollywood Legends that drove them. Once you've toured the legendary, be inspired to dream of the future with modern "bespoke" automobiles from avant-garde artist Steve Moal, whose designs will challenge the way you think about automobile form and function. Craving more nostalgia? Visit our wood car and station wagon display and relive memories of your carefree youth of days spent at the beach, surfboard in hand. Add to the mix vintage Italian motorcycles, fine food, wine and fashion, and enjoy a lifetime of experiences in one, singular day.
