Ah yes, Florida. The land of sunlight, warm temperatures, and lots of rich people who love to buy nice cars. Okay, I’m not talking about all of Florida. I’m talking about a place I’ve been to so many times I practically lived there for a week every year as a little kid–Boca Raton. My paternal grandparents have lived there, more or less, since I was born, and my maternal grandmother lives there half the year. This makes going down there for a Concours event far easier than it does for, say, Amelia Island or Pebble Beach. For the first time in its history, this website will be providing coverage of the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance, held at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, right in town. This year’s featured marque at this event will be Cadillac. Stay tuned for the best from Boca, as only MoM can bring you.
Now for those of you who watched The Sopranos, here’s a great clip of how Uncle Junior feels about going to Boca. I feel the same way cooped up here in cold, desolate New Jersey (video NSFW).
More to come from Boca Raton next week.
