Over the weekend, the Pebble Beach golf course held its annual pro-am tournament featuring a who’s who of bold-faced names in sports and entertainment: John Daly, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady, Jeb Bush, Kenny G... the list goes on.
But the brightest star of the weekend was undoubtedly Clint Eastwood—because he saved a man’s life.
File this one under “Bizarre occurrences you missed this weekend.” Yesterday in Pebble Beach, 175 classic car aficionados (also known as “auto trads”) took a leisurely drive down the highways of Pebble Beach, resulting in one of the more spectacular car-watching events of the year. Luckily, the internet has supplied all the pictures you’ll need.
The King of Cool's 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera (above), in an understated shade of slate gray, was the car the actor drove daily for the last years of his tragically short life. While nothing like his older Jaguar XK-SS and Ferrari 250 Lusso, both of which sold for millions in years past, the Porsche—which was hammered down for a measly $137,000—is somehow a more authentic, poignant relic of the once and future King.
