Exhibitor Information

Twenty-two classes and two hundred exceptional automobiles are slated for display at the 23rd Annual Palos Verdes Concours d'Elegance September 20, 2015.

Exhibition is by invitation only. A complete list of 2015 classes shown below. The Exhibition Committee reserves the right to change/add/combine classes as necessary.

The display will be located at Los Verdes Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes. There is easy access to the park, and plenty of room to unload vehicles and park trailers.

As awards are presented at the conclusion of judging, the cars will parade around the display area. This unique concept will permit excellent viewing of the winners from many vantage points. All exhibition cars are expected to stay on the field until the conclusion of the awards presentation.
