WS for August 9th: Concourse d´Elegance! Is Open Now!

 
 By: Subexplorer : August 9th, 2019-05:48

As I said last Wednesday when announcing theme for this week end, we request our members a big dose of imagination to figure us in a gorgeous Italian Hotel standing by the sparkling blue waters of Lake Como enjoying a week end full of beautiful classic cars, awesome watches, tons of glamour and charm.

This is the challenge:

We ask participants to submit a picture of a classic car of their dreams (or one they actually own) and pictures of the watch/watches you would be wearing on the wrist when driving that jewel on wheels along the Jury area.

As usual, three categories will be judged:

Best static shot,

Best Wrist Scan 

Watch of the Week.

We have added this week end a special category for “Best car of the Show” to be judged by Mike (Cazalea).

Ladies and Gentlemen: The Contest is Open!

Please join us for a week end full of sophistication, glamour and champagne and bringing your best classic cars and your favorite watches!

I will be participating with our family car, restored to original color and specs in a joint effort by my son and myself several years ago: a 1966 Mustang hardtop coupe. And will also enter a car of my dreams which I had been close to own but never made it reality but has been haunting my soul since I was a teenager many many decades ago: the jaguar Type E.

And of course a few watches to wear on my wrist during my virtual driving this week end.

Cheers!

Your Host, Abel.




































Great theme Abel....

Guessing that's a '72 Trans Am . . .

. . . and fully aware it represents the last of the breed of true muscle cars.  The '73 and '74 Super Duty 455's were literally the last high-output engines Detroit offered for a decade, until the Buick Grand National came along. 

Cool stuff!

I decided......
