Missed Monterey Car Week? Here’s What Happened at the World’s Premier Auto Show

If the adage “absence makes the heart grow fonder” was ever in question, all doubt was removed over the course of about 10 days this month—for motoring enthusiasts, at least. After the automotive world’s premier expo, Monterey Car Week, in Northern California, was garaged last year, the industry’s glitterati, collectors and admirers of every age seemed determined that the 2021 edition of Monterey Car Week would not only see the light of day, but shine more brightly than ever.

The show, which now includes a series of exhibitions, historics racing, auctions and a few concours, started as a single-day car exhibition scheduled to complement the Pebble Beach Road Race in 1950. Although the latter went idle after 1956, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance continued strong and, like a sun drawing celestial bodies into orbit, began gathering related automotive events.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.3% to 31148. The S&P 500 climbed 0.4%, hitting a record high for the second day in a row. The benchmark is up more than 4.6% this week, its biggest one-week gain since the week ending Nov. 6.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite rose 0.6% to a record and also closed its best week since Nov. 6.

The heavily traded stocks at the center of a social-media spectacle have lost some of their steam. GameStop rose 19%, after falling by 30% or more for three of the previous four trading days. It’s down 80% for the week,
