For many years, Pebble Beach was the lighthouse event of the classic car scene. Cars were restored to better than factory specifications, made into pristine jewels, meant to be only displayed at special events, and only to be driven for a few short meters, before being returned to the safety of the climate controlled storage facilities.

Chantilly Alfa & Elegance

It’s one day before National Alfa Day and, at 4AM on a Saturday morning, I leave London going in the opposite direction. Have I gone mad? Maybe. There is a chance I have just  been intoxicated by the lure of a techno monster.
