Launched more than 50 years ago as a social gathering for the upper echelons of auto collecting and racing, the Concours d'Elegance
in Pebble Beach, Calif., has evolved into a "holy week" for the motoring faithful.
The festivities, spread across the entire Monterey Peninsula, begin Tuesday and won't slow down until Aug. 19th's pivotal event: the Concours d'Elegance, where Duesenbergs and Darracq/Talbot-Lagos take over the 18th hole of the famed Pebble Beach golf course from dawn until 4:30 p.m.
Tickets start at $150; (831) 622-1700, www.pebblebeachconcours.net. Other notable events: Old Indy Roadsters square off Thursday to Aug. 19 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca ($45 to $125 per person;  686-9292; www.montereyhistoric.com).
