Sights from Car Week on the Monterey Penninsula

Posted by Amy in General

Car Week on the Monterey Pennisula has a little bit for everyone. It ran August 15-21st. There are the historics racing at Laguna Seca (Mazda Raceway now), there were car shows and auctions everywhere.  If you like cars…chances are there was SOMETHING here for you.  I decided to take in what I could for free one Saturday- just to see what I could see.

(Lots of photos after the jump)

This Mercedes sold at auction for either $7 or $9 million dollars. Its just impossible for me to wrap my head around that! (Photo Credit: Ralph Marbach for BadGroove)

There were even gojacks tucked in the corner. (Photo Credit: Amy Marbach)

A Lincoln previously owned by Toby Keith was up for auction. I wonder if it came with the standee? (Photo Credit: Ralph Marbach for BadGroove)

And the whole reason I wanted to go to car week? Was to see the DeLorean from the Back To The Future Franchise of course:
