First conducted in 1950, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance
is often said to be the world’s premier celebration of the automobile.​
Only the most beautiful and rare automobiles are invited to appear on the​
famed eighteenth fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links each year.​
Connoisseurs of art and technology congregate to see them.

The real event is 4 days starting on Thursday, August 12.​
See web sites below for list of events and links to sites of those events.​
The classic cars site lists last year's events but just assume that they will be the same only the date will change.

We will get to the area by Wednesday evening as the first event may be the best.​
About 2/3 of the cars in the show take a drive around the famous 17 mile Carmel/Pebble drive​
and then go to the center of Carmel where one can get up close and personal with the cars and their owners.​
Great for pictures and people watching.

There's vintage racing, the Italian show and several great auctions.​
