2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance: Nelson's Favorites

Follow Nelson

It seems like the winner at Pebble Beach is chosen through a mixture of politics, personal history, effort required in restoration (though not necessarily that of the owner), and money spent--but picking a winner of any kind out of the stellar assortment of cars arranged here this week is bound to be a difficult proposition. I'm no judge, but these are the five cars that caught my eye as having something even more special than all of the rest of the priceless, rare, storied, or otherwise incredible cars on the fairway today. If it were up to me, one of these would be the winner.

1965 Ford Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe
The Argentinian owners, Jorge Gregorio and Luiz Perez Companc experienced a bit of a language barrier with the judges, but it was only a temporary hitch--and the car itself is fantastic, still bearing the look of use and racing appropriate for such a car. This example was driven by Bob Bondurant to the victory at the 12 hour race in Reims, France, on July 4, 1965.
