|Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Introduces Its First Sport Customs Class|
| One-off Sport Customs designed to turn heads while tooling down Main Street USA will roll onto the 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links for the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on August 19.
This year, for the very first time, the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance is hosting an entire class dedicated to Sport Customs.
'These are one-of-a-kind cars built in the US, on modified American production chassis with American engines by individuals, designers and craftsmen,' explains automotive historian Ken Gross, a member of the committee that vets and selects the Concours entries. 'Although the word sport connotes adroit handling, for the most part these cars were stylish boulevard cruisers, designed to be seen and admired, not to win races.'
'The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance continues to expand alongside the growing interests of enthusiasts,' says Concours Chairman Sandra Button. 'It is important for us to stay in tune with the interests of the people who create, love, and care for these special cars, and it is always interesting to host something new and different.'
