Day one of Monterey Car Week started off with breakfast at Katies in Carmel, and as we left to view the staging of the Concours on the Avenue parked outside the restaurant was a beaten up old Maserati (seen below). It turned out that this was the1956 Maserati A6G 2000 Gran Sport Berlinetta by Frua from the French Baillon barn find collection and auction, and cost the new owner $2.2million plus the cost of shipping it to California. The car was in original condition and running well–amazing!
The display of cars on Ocean Avenue and side streets was impressive, and must have included hundreds of cars, each one a beauty with a story. From vintage Bentley, to collector Porsche, to racing BMWs almost every type of car was present with the exception of the very modern hypercars.
