|2013 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Celebrates Lincolns To Lamborghinis|
| PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (Feb 4, 2013) -- The 63rd Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is still months away, but the field of cars for this elite competition, held at Pebble Beach Resorts, is already beginning to take shape -- from coachbuilt Lincolns exhibiting the continental flair of Edsel Ford to the classic confections of the Parisian firm Vanvooren to the charging mounts from Ferruccio Lamborghini that have long defined the term 'supercar.'
Entry applications were due in January and are now being reviewed and vetted. The Concours Selection Committee meets at the end of March to determine which cars will receive a coveted invitation to the August 18 competition set on the 18th fairway at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Most applicants will be notified of the committee's decision by mid-April.
'It's exciting to see the many automobiles that people have worked so passionately to preserve and restore and hope to share with others here,' said Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Chairman Sandra Button. 'The success of this event depends on the superb quality of automobiles and motorcycles that our participants bring to our show field.'
Late entry applications can still be submitted, but space in many classes is already limited. To request an application, please send an inquiry offering some basic information about your car to firstname.lastname@example.org.
