Pebble Beach Concours 2010

The annual Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance honors a uniquely American contribution to the automotive world on a biennial basis. "Hot rods were the genesis of performance for the people, and hot rodding is an American thing, like jazz and baseball," says Bruce Meyer, the enthusiast and car collector from Beverly Hills who convinced organizers to create the class in 1997. This year, nine cars made the trip to Monterey, and three rolled across the stage. However, the winning car—Eddie's roadster—didn't have enough ground clearance and owner Don Ferguson (who, like a true hot-rodder, restored the car largely by himself), drove around the stage. Even in winning, hot rodders are a down to earth breed.
