2019 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Wrap Up | #385
Back from Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Alan is ready to talk cars and fill us in on his time at the amazing, high-class event. First up, automotive journalist, BJ Killeen, chats with Alan about his time at Pebble Beach, the Dawn Patrol, wacky auction activity, and the impressive 2020 Toyota Corolla. Then, we catch up with Executive Publisher for Kelley Blue Book, Autotrader, and Dealer.com, Karl Brauer, after his experience riding around Laguna Seca in the Limited Edition Ford GT MkII with professional race car driver, Billy Johnson. Also, we chat about how the automotive industry has been influenced into inaction by the current tariffs and trade war with China. Changing lanes, CEO of Bondurant High Performance Driving School, Bruce Belser, tells us why we should take a course at his driving school even if we don't have aspirations to become the next big racing star. Shifting gears, Meguiar's President, Barry Meguiar, and Event Chairman, Frank DiPaola, tell us about the breath taking Carmel Mission Classic held at a 250 year old mission on the Monterey Peninsula. This concours sets itself apart from others during Monterey Car Week with a uniquely religious focus, in which cars are even blessed by a priest! Up next, Executive Director of the Council for National Policy and former United States Congressman, Bob McEwen, chat about the car hobby, the impact of American on the rest of the world, and how you can get involved with the Council for National Policy. Closing out the show, we get an update on next year's Amelia Island Concours from Founder and Chairman, Bill Warner. The next Amelia Island Concours will feature honor Roger Penske, feature Penske racing cars from over the years, as well as Scaglietti, and 'Porsche firsts'. Tune in to for more from Pebble Beach Concours.
