SUCCESS QUOTE

“A synonym for concours d’elegance is Pebble Beach.” – Alton Walker, Founding Chairman of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

CAREER CHALLENGE

When Sandra gets ideas to bring certain cars to the event that can be reunited or shown together in a way they have never been, it becomes a financial challenge that requires tapping in to contacts and sponsors for help.

AH-HA MOMENTS

Sandra suggested bringing in sponsors to help support the financial cost of putting on the concours so more money could be raised for their charity. The ah-ha came in assuring the integrity of the event and the experience for the owners remained intact.

FIRST SPECIAL CAR

A 1919 Pierce Arrow Model 48 Duel Valve Roadster

BEST AUTOMOTIVE ADVICE

Buy the best you can afford, what you love. If you buy the wrong thing don’t forget the first loss is the cheapest so if you don’t like it and it doesn’t work, sell it and move on.

AUTOMOTIVE RESOURCE

If you don’t know something pick up the phone and call an expert.
