67th Pebble Beach Concours d\'Elegance (Albert Wong)

Photographs by Albert Wong Once each year in August, 200 of the most prized collector cars in the world roll onto what is often called the best finishing hole in golf—the famed 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links. Tire meets turf and transformation occurs: the stage is set for one of the most competitive events in the automotive world. Originally a small social event paired with a road race through the pine and cypress forests of Pebble Beach, the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and Pebble Beach Automotive Week have grown into the top-ranking collector car competition in the world.

The Concours is not a contest of speed, but of elegance. Automobiles and motorcycles are judged for their historical accuracy, their technical merit and their style—and the best garner reward and recognition. “We are deeply thankful to all who helped to make the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance yet another unforgettable and historic event!, said Concours Chairperson Sandra Button. “Entrants brought many magnificent automobiles to share with others here, and we raised more than $1.6 million for charity.”
