    Now Monterey Car week is over and the real fun begins!! Please come join us at the 2nd Annual Avila Beach Concours d' Elegance and Rally. This event is for the benefit of Hospice San Luis Obispo. www.avilabeachconcours.com. We are located half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles (101FWY and PCH).
    Our event last year was a huge success and this year we have extended the event and are offering more!!
    Please visit our website for the schedule of events and entry info.
    Here is the tentative event schedule. We have an organized drive scheduled for Friday October 24 from the Ferrari of Silicone Valley in Redwood City as we did last year. Since we are starting on Thursday this year we may organize an additional drive on Thursday October 23.


    Oct 23rd: Marque event at Downtown San Luis Obispo during our famous Farmers Market.
    The Historic Fremont theater is open only to our participants and Monterey Street will be closed to show case our cars and food and wine from our local restaurants and wineries will be available. We will be showing some classic car movie and footages.

    Oct 24th: Timed Rally (150miles) through the Northern San Luis Obispo County. Then a party/ dinner at the Historic Santa Margarita Ranch, ride on the original Disneyland train and taste some local wine while on the train!! It's party time with live music and traditional Santa Maria style BBQ!!

    Oct 25Th: Tour of the Central Coast. Drive through the Central coast wine region, stopping at one of the premium winery and lunch stop in Downtown San Luis Obispo, creating a casual car show atmosphere (streets will be closed for our cars). Gala Dinner Party and benefit auction at the Avila Beach Golf Resort.

    Oct 26th: Concours at the Avila Beach Golf Resort. We offer a Vintage Ferrari Concours judged by the qualified FCA Judges. ( Ferraris are judged up to the 355 model, all newer cars can be signed up for the display category).

    Looking forward to this event. Nice location, and strangely about the same distance from my front door to Cars & Coffee or SLO.

    FYI, I don't recommend the Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort. Stayed there with the wife earlier this year and the property is lacking the ammenities you would expect for a room in the $150-$250 per night range.

    Sycamore Resort has been informed of your concern and it will be taken care of. We recommend staying at one of their Suites. They are much nicer.
    We do have many hotels to choose from this year. Please take a look at our website for more hotel info.

    This is right in my backyard and I will be racing in the La Carrera Panamericana in Mexico. Is it possible to move the date one weekend in either direction (LOL)

    It was a nice day today at Avila Beach. A few familiar faces and lot of great cars.:) A few of my favorites, 1961 250 TR, 575 Super America, a Lusso, 1999 355 Serie Fiorano #8, and Tino's 1967 275 GTB4 that won Best of Show here last year. John Corbani's Dino was looking great, as well as MrTheKid's Scud. This was my first year, and I'm looking forward to going again next year.

    I didn't get to see the show, but you guys certainly made my drive back down to San Luis Obispo today a much better ride. Nothing like seeing a Ferrari every 15 minutes! The gray Scud (MrTheKids?) is very stealth, I was staring at the Red CS driving behind it for a few seconds before I even realized the Scud was there. Good looking cars guys!
