Monterey, California, August 19, 2019 – Car enthusiasts from age 8 to 80 joined in the fun at The Club at Pasadera’s (TCAP) inaugural Concours at Pasadera on Aug. 9, at the luxurious country club in Monterey.

Celebrity Chef Colin Moody created gourmet culinary stations complemented by free-flowing Champagne and sparkling blush wines at the spectacular showcase of 55 collectible cars.

Winners in two categories and four award classes were also announced.

“In 1979 I attended my first Concours at Pebble Beach. Ever since, Car Week has been a part of our family’s life,” said Rick Barnett, collector and Pasadera member. “This year was exciting as the ‘Launch’ to Car Week kicked off at Pasadera. Friends gathered to see the cars and enjoy the food. It was amazing — can’t wait for next year!”

Among the diverse array of collectible cars that were shown included vehicles from Aston-Martin, Austin-Healy, Bentley, Buick, Chevrolet, Cobra, Denzel, Ferrari, Ford, Jeep, Jensen, Maserati, Mercedes-Benz, MG, Nissan, Panoz, Pontiac, Porsche, VW and more.

“I am new to The Club at Pasadera and to the Peninsula,” said Kurt Burmeister, Pasadera General Manager. “Two months ago, I would not consider myself a ‘car guy.’ Playing a role in the execution of this fun event officially made me a ‘car guy.’ What a way to kick off car week! I am super excited for next year and seeing what rolls into town in the next few days.”

Next year’s Concours at Pasadera will be held from 4-7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7, 2020.

Participating as the panel of vetting authorities were Jeffrey Ernest, Bill Finkbeiner and Eric Keener.
