Palo Alto Concours d'Elegance 2002

The 36th Annual Palo Alto Conccours d'Elegance was again held on the Stanford Campus Sunday, June 23, 2002. The featured marks were Cadillac on their 100th anniversary and Alfa Romeo.

As usual there where some extraorginary Porsches that caught my eye, but the Alfa's were of interest to me also because back in the 60's I owned a bright red Alfa Guliette Spyder for a few years. I remember that car with great fondness.


l52-18 Ken Brown's '66 912.
l53-20 Arturo Bejar's 1973 Carrera RS
l53-23 Ernie King's 1970 914-6. This car is set up for the track. Note the fenders and roll cage.
l52-21 Don Masero's modified 1964 356C.
l52-23 The wheels are spares from a 964. He said the first one was easy to find and the last was pretty hard.
