Summer is almost officially upon us and that means cars shows. Sure, there are plenty of Cars and Coffee events that you can see great cars, but the competition car shows are now well underway.
For us the car show season starts with the Cruisin’ Morro Bay Car Show. Of course if we were on the east coast Amelia Island is the show that starts things off, but that is all the way on the other side of the country. For us it starts in Morro Bay and all the car shows lead to the “grand daddy” of them all, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The Porsche 356 A first hit the market for model year 1955. Over the pre-A models the 356 A had a number a slight changes. During its production run, the rear mounted engine was available in the three displacements, 1300cc, 1500cc and 1600cc variants.
If you had attended the Pebble Breach Concours d’Elegance a few years ago and then attended this year then you may have been asking where the Porsche display was. For a number of years the German performance car maker had a display at the top of Peter Hay Hill.
However, the last few years this has not been the case and their presence of the headline event of Monterey Car Week has been absent. Just where has Porsche been during Pebble Beach?
