Desert Concorso's inaugural splash March 30 at the Shadow Mountain Golf Club in Palm Desert brought more than 100 sports car owners from across Southern California much to the delight of onlookers.

They were treated to a cross-section of cars bent on satisfying the need for speed with sleek designs.

Some brought back memories while others created the vicarious pleasure of seeing yourself in the driver's seat.
