The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance may be the cornerstone of Monterey Car Week — but it’s just one event among a flurry of activity that takes place all over the peninsula from August 15 through August 20. Concours, shows, auctions, events, parties and more are all taking place in the area — including Linkage’s own seminar at RM Sotheby’s on Friday, August 18, hosted by publisher Donald Osborne and featuring contributor and collector car expert Stephen Serio.
Even at Pebble itself, the concours is only part of the celebration. This year’s Pebble Beach Classic Car Forum is made up of a number of classic car presentations, all taking place throughout the week, starting on Thursday, August 17.
This year’s topics include:
