Episode 6: Under Rodeo Drive with Scot Prescott | Behind the Wheel with Lindsay Brewer

        The Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance, which takes place annually on Father’s Day, shows that fashion and fine cars are inseparable. And racing drivers like Lindsay Brewer agree.

        “I race and I enjoy that,” Brewer tells host Pari Ehsan on Rodeo Drive–The Podcast. “But I also can have the full face of makeup and do my hair and look glamorous, because that’s what I like to do, too, it doesn’t have to be one or the other.”

        Brewer, who is racing in Indy Pro 2000 and has a social media following of more than three million, opens up to Ehsan about how to beat the boys on the track, and be a serious driver while maintaining a glamorous brand that is essential for building sponsorship. She also previews her new line of unisex, 80s skiwear-inspired clothing.

        Meanwhile, Rodeo Drive-The Podcast Field Correspondent Jason E.C. Wright goes deep underground to meet Scot Prescott, owner and founder of Auto Vault Storage, a storage and restoration service for some of the finest cars in the world, which in true Bond style, is buried three stories underneath Rodeo Drive. Prescott tours him round his padded garage filled with rare, fast and exotic cars under covers and recounts his journey from New Hampshire, where he was a kid with a dream.

        “I used to dream about coming to California. And once I graduated from high school, I drove out here. I arrived here with $70. And I started washing cars. I bought some equipment. I wanted to become the king of car washing.”

        “Every car has a story,” he adds, like the 1934 Rolls-Royce stored there by a woman whose family has owned the car for generations. “The family assigns people to take care of the car, because this car is a family member. And she has been assigned to take care of this car. She lives in California, so the car lives here.”

        The Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance was founded in 1993 by the Beverly Hills businessman and Chairman of the Rodeo Drive Concours d’Elegance Bruce Meyer and friends who wanted to raise funds to restore an iconic Beverly Hills fire truck, so they created a Father’s Day car show on Rodeo Drive. Almost three decades later, it has become an institution, but had to put the brakes on during the pandemic. When the Concours returns, Meyer promises it will be ”without a doubt our best show ever,” featuring “an extraordinary display of Rolls-Royces, supercars, antique cars” along with the famed Fire Truck, which will lead the parade.

        Season Three of Rodeo Drive – The Podcast is presented by the Rodeo Drive Committee with the support of the City of Beverly Hills, The Hayman Family, Two Rodeo Drive, Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, the Beverly Hills Conference & Visitors Bureau, and MCM.
