Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance — 70 Years of Automotive Excellence
This book celebrates the very best of the Pebble Beach Concours: the amazing cars, the great collectors, the judges and the partners that have enabled this annual event to have remained at the pinnacle of the historic motoring movement for so many years.
Whilst the cars are the stars, the stories that are interwoven through the years are very human and the financial benefit to the many charities over the years has been significant. Pebble Beach at 70 will reflect on the development of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance – from its early role as the precursor to the races to its pioneering role in changing attitudes towards restoration and preservation. The book will be lavish in every respect – oversized, beautifully produced and with over 300 pages of great writing and stunning photography.
