I just learned where cool race cars go to win Concours and hang out in a museum I've never heard of before, but I've seen some of their cars before! Canepa Motorsports Museum near Santa Cruz

there are 25 cars and 10 motorcycles,

 and so far they've won the following 7 first place trophies in just the last 2 years

 1972 Porsche 917-10 – Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
 1962 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster – Palo Alto Concours
 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing – Hillsborough Concours
 1969 Porsche 917-K – Marin Sonoma Concours d'Elegance 
1967 Cobra 427 – Beverly Hills Concours
 1970 Lola T70 Mk3B Can Am – Hillsborough Concours
 1983 Lancia LC2 Prototype – San Francisco Presidio Concours

Bruce Canepa'd first car was a 29 Model A, and he's raced IMSA and Trans Am circuits, and the Daytona 24 hours with Bobby Rahal and Rick Mears. He also has had a huge success at Pikes Peak, setting the course record in 2000 and 2001, and ran a race truck up in 2002 setting a tandem axle record of 13:57, breaking the previous 13:59... and he still holds the record now.

Good video!
