Out of the 113 classics that graced the show field of the La Jolla Concours d’Elegance, a 1934 Packard Twelve was bestowed the honor of Best in Show.

Now in its 18th year, the 2024 La Jolla concours hosted some of the finest classics spread across 13 classes at La Jolla Cove’s Ellen Browning Scripps Park.

In place of celebrating a single marque, La Jolla chose to highlight the Art Deco designs of the 1920s and 1930s from esteemed car makers like Bugatti, Duesenberg, Bentley and more.
