Lovely write-up & pictures, Karl!

Your threads are always a treat to read. The attention to detail, pictures & your knowledge about the vehicles & their history.

The hood ornament looks like a "Maltese Cross".

Thank you Karl for making us "poor non-Pebble-Beachers of the West" live this event through these superb photos and descriptions. I am happy for the Amir, his Phantom will never quit my dreams. I also have a special connect to the FIAT and am so happy it was invited to Pebble Beach.
Above all I congratulate all the Indian contingent: my Ambassador resurrector Kaizad (who has now moved quite up the ladder!); Marespand the FIAT, Rolls and-everything-else high priest; all the owners of those splendid cars and Karl for being the official reporter (when will YOU get a trophy for you special contributions?). I am very proud to have met most of you!

A commemorative badge was issued for the 2018 event, featuring - who else - but 62UK

Lovely badge Karl, thanks for sharing.

But did Pebble Beach guys issue this or was it made in India?



Looks good, and the car takes ones breath away each time she passes

I assume issued by Pebble Beach themselves, as one of the class judges had shared a picture on receiving one. Subject to correction.
