With a near-perfect climate, stunning scenery and a multitude of attractions, few locations are better for a weekend celebration of the automobile, than Southern California's jewel, La Jolla.
"It is with great pleasure that Bonhams is participating in this ninth annual event," says Jakob Greisen, Head of Business Development of the Bonhams Motoring Department. "I have attended many times before, and there is really something special about this event. The location, right on the water, is as good as it gets, and with the finest cars on display from throughout western United States, it makes for a wonderful weekend of vintage automobiles".
The Bonhams booth will feature a superb 1962 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster and a stylish 1967 Jaguar E-Type 4.2-Liter Roadster, both to be offered at Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction, August 15-16. Attending from the Motoring Specialist team are Mark Osborne (415) 518-0094, David Swig (415) 503-3285 and Jakob Greisen (415) 480-9028
