My Monterey Car Week 2022 - The Plan
My Monterey Car Week 2022 will be an abbreviated week this year by design. I pared back my requests for credentials; I often try to cram too much into the limited time available.
This year I will only be on the Monterey Peninsula for three days. It would have been four days but the Concours on the Avenue (Ocean Ave. Carmel-by-the-Sea) was cancelled this year.
So I'll be down on Wednesday, August 17th, and Thursday the 18th. Wednesday night is Motorlux at the Jet Center, an event I am chuffed to attend. I'll get down early and wander about to some of the auctions, maybe the Little Car Show in Pacific Grove. I will head over to Pebble Beach to pick up my credential for the PB Concours d'Elegance on Sunday.
Thursday will be an easy day. There is a lot to see but I'm going to be picky and pace myself. There's a cocktail reception late afternoon hosted by RM Sotherby's. My day will end with a drive home.
Sunday will be the big day. I'll probably get up early (not unusual) and head to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. I've been going to Pebble for a couple of decades and I'm still like a kid in a candy store. As far as I'm concerned Pebble is the one West Coast car event you must attend at least once in your life.
So that will be my week. Check out the schedule of events and go see something yourself.
