Since the founding of the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance, a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, in 1991, the Concours' mission has been to create a world-class show of classic, vintage historical, and special-interest automobiles, to provide funds for charitable and community purposes and to promote the beauty and opportunities of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

The past years have seen the Palos Verdes Concours d'Elegance grow in stature among both the collectors and classic car aficionados. The first Palos Verdes Concours held on the Ladera Linda soccer fields was followed by six years on the football field of Peninsula High School. This was followed by four years at the former Ocean Trails Golf Club and three years at Rolling Hills Country Club before coming back to what became Trump National Golf Club on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean.


Unique to the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance is the selection each year of a Grand Marshal chosen for their influence in art or the automotive world. Past Grand Marshals include:
