Do you miss Pebble Beach? Do you miss seeing all the beautiful cars, the beautiful people, the beautiful scenery? Don’t let the pandemic and all its cancellations get you down, man. You can see everything online, Just go to Petersen.org and start clicking links.
You’ll find auctions, presentations, virtual car shows and even events that aren’t normally at Monterey, like the Goodwood Revival, Future Collector Car Show and the Sonoma Festival of Speed which, technically, are all in other locations. There are events normally reserved for the press that are now open to you, the average attendee, too: the C8 Interview, KC Wagoneer In-Depth Vehicle Reveal, the Xing Vehicle Reveal and the mysterious “BMW Vehicle Reveal.” Online auctions from Bonham’s, RM Sotheby’s and Bring A Trailer.
For you intellectuals, there are thought-provoking deep dives like: The Impact of American Car Culture on Horacio Pagani and McLaren Ultimate Series Technical Exploration.
And, of course, there are the Monterey Car Week staples, the meat and potatoes: The Jet Party, The Quail, Laguna Seca Laps Through the Era, Concorso Italiano, Exotics on Broadway and The Pebble Beach Concours.
That’s just a partial list. Go to www.petersen.org to see everything. And it’s all free. You might decide you prefer it this way. Who knows?
