PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. _ To car collectors around the globe, it is something akin to Willy Wonka’s golden ticket. It is rare and hard to come by and the competition for it can often be fierce. It is an invitation to show an automobile at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The next Pebble Beach Concours is held annually on the 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Link, won’t take place until Sunday, Aug. 26, 2018.
Hopeful owners often begin by sending a simple description of their car to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each year the Concours agrees to formally vet about 1,000 cars. Members of the Concours Selection Committee, a group of 15 automotive experts guided by Concours Chairman Sandra Button, spend the early months of the year researching these cars, sometimes even visiting them to ascertain their authenticity and condition.
The 2018 Concours will feature Motor Cars of the Raj, Rollston Coachwork, OSCA, Postwar Custom Citroën, Sporting Vintage Cars and Tucker. Organizers also promise another surprise (or two or three!) to be unveiled in the spring.
