Chrysler’s Chrysler — Debut at 2014 Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance

As Classic Car Week and the Concourse d’Elegance once again transform the Monterey Peninsula into the greatest car show on earth, we at the Old Monterey Inn are fortunate to be right in the mix of things! We feel extremely honored to play host to several very prominent guests who return to us year after year to enjoy our beautiful location and all that the week has to offer throughout the area. Our guests range from experts from the show “American Pickers” to classic race car drivers, some of which have been staying at the Old Monterey Inn for decades to enjoy the festivities! Breakfast is always an interesting time to listen to our knowledgeable guests chat about their daily activities.

Chrysler

This year, one of our notable return guests has a fabulous car to be featured at the actual Concourse event at Pebble Beach! Known as “Chrysler’s Chrysler,” the immaculately restored 1937 Chrysler Imperial C-15 Town Car will make its show debut this week! The seven passenger limousine was built for Walter Chrysler himself as a gift for his wife. Proud owners Mr. and Mrs. Howard Kroplick have had the automobile painstakingly restored to mint condition. After well over a year, and countless labor hours of work, this historically significant Town Car is ready to show! You can check it out for yourself at its’ very own website at www.vanderbiltcupraces.com and you can check out all of the events and results at www.pebblebeachconcours.net

We hope for the best for our special guests during this years’ event!

Lawrence and I are happy and proud to be writing our first blog post, announcing our brand new website! We want to thank the Jumping Rocks photographers and our website designers, White Stone Marketing! We think they have done a fabulous job with our site, and helping us to ‘show off’ our beautiful Monterey Inn and all of the hard work we have been doing around the property. Thank you! We hope you check it out when you get the chance!

Meanwhile, spring is in the air here in Monterey, Carmel, and Big Sur. The coastal recreation trail has been packed with runners, cyclists and walkers. What a perfect place to train, or just get out and enjoy the stellar weather we have been having. Lawrence and I enjoyed the beautiful weather and took a quick trip out 17 Mile Drive to Pebble Beach last weekend to enjoy lunch on the patio at the Stillwater Café. The restaurant sits right off the 18th green at Pebble Beach. The food and service are as phenomenal as the setting! We can highly recommend that as a day trip while you are staying with us here at our bed and breakfast in Monterey, CA.
