On the famous Rodeo Drive, the annual Father’s Day tradition of the Concours d’Elegance takes place and brings out some of the most rare vehicles out on display. Starting 20 years ago, the event has gain some international fame. This year’s theme was “the Jet Age” and featured a Learjet 85 parked in the event.

Mel and I went out to check out the event for a couple hours since we didn’t have much else going on that day. This was our first time checking out the event and didn’t really know what to expect. There was definitely a massive crowd of people at the event and an endless sight of amazing vehicles inside and outside the event.

I knew this Pagani Huayra was in town and it was nice to finally see it in person.

With these high end cars, it’s amazing to see the amount of work put into the details.
