Father's Day, 90210 style: The 2009 Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance

by Drew Phillips

Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills is most known for its luxury boutiques like Giorgio Armani and Louis Vuitton, but during Father's Day it's all about the cars. For the past several years, the city of Beverly Hills has blocked traffic along the famous street between Santa Monica Blvd and Dayton Way for the Rodeo Drive Concours d'Elegance. The show is free to spectators, making it a popular outing for car-loving dads all over Southern California.

This year's event featured a unique collection of classic and vintage cars, highlighted by a spectacular 1939 Delahaye 165 and a trio of Bentley race cars from the 1920s. Rare and quirky supercars seemed to be a common theme, with a Bugatti EB110 SS, Cizeta V16T, and Vector WX-3R all on display. There were also a healthy amount of Shelby Cobras, Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwings, classic Ferraris, and more. You can check out all of them in the high-res gallery below.
