More Photos, Engine and Undercarriage

To win at Pebble Beach, or at other top-drawer Concours d'Elegance, takes more than just a perfect exterior and interior. There's the engine, of course. But the undercarriage is also very important, particularly when the judges need a tiebreaker between two or three beautiful cars. To win, cars like this one must look as they did on the day they were delivered to their first owner. Like this, underneath the front of the car --

-- and below the back of the car:

These are photos that only a mechanic could love. Or a Concours judge. Or this rare, fine car's next owner, behind the wheel looking out over the polished burl walnut dashboard... supremely comfortable on the sumptuous front seat, confident that whatever shows are entered in the years to come, they have -- a winner.
