I fall in love with the little details. Each car has its own moments and marks that make it unique and tie it to the story that trails behind through the years, and these little aspects are what draw me in every time. While walking through the rows of Pebble Beach’s Councours d’Elegance, the Abarth Simca 2000 GT was the first to catch my eye.
Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to see a number of spectacular cars in person – cars I’ve seen in books as a kid, or in photo archives on the web, but never expected to see in person. Rarities, one-offs, concepts, and coach built cars are much of what make Concours shows so special; they often represent a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see some of automotive history’s most unique, impressive, or sometimes gaudy cars, ever.
