Inhaltsangabe: Now in its 20th year, the Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance has been listed by Frommer’s as “300 Unmissable Events in the World.” On what is often said to be the world’s most fashionable avenue, the theme for this year’s show was the Jet Age. This was the period immediately following the end of the Second World War characterized by optimism, aerodynamic styling, flamboyant tail fins, wide white walls, and massive amounts of chrome. This year’s event also celebrated two 50-year anniversaries, for the iconic Porsche 911 and the ground-breaking Learjet. Each was marked with special displays, in the case of the Learjet, a full-scale mock up on Rodeo Drive of the all-new model 85 business jet. The organizing committee assembled an outstanding collection of cars from the classics of the 1920s to contemporary supercars like the McLaren P1 with its 900-horsepower hybrid gas-electric drivetrain. Held every Father’s Day, the Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance is totally free for spectators and is unique in all the world.
