PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. _ For auto collectors around the world, it's something like Willy Wonka's golden ticket. It is rare and difficult to get and the competition can often be fierce. It is an invitation to show an automobile at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

The next Pebble Beach Concours takes place annually at the 18th fairway of the Pebble Beach Golf Link and will take place on Sunday, August 26, 2018

Hopeful owners often start with a simple description of their car [19659004] entries@pebblebeachconcours.net . E Every year, the Concours agrees to formally investigate about 1000 cars. Members of the Concours Selection Committee, a group of 15 automotive experts led by Concours Chairman Sandra Button, spend the first months of the year exploring and sometimes even visiting these cars to verify their authenticity and condition.

The Concours 2018 will feature motorcars of the Raj, Rollston Coachwork, OSCA, post-war custom Citroën, sporty vintage cars and Tucker. The organizers also promise another surprise (or two or three!), Which is to be revealed in the spring.
