The aptly named "Pebble, Pulp & Chef" Willys gets sideways on the Mo-Kan starting line. Gassers like this Stone, Woods and Cook tribute are H.A.M.B. Drags staples.

The 1930s were a wild time in Indy racing, and this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance will feature some of the finest restored examples of the era's two-man entries. Photo courtesy of The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

Ever since 1997, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance has invited select groups of hot rods and customs onto the 18th fairway at the Pebble Beach Golf Links for the daylong show. Last year, the Concours hosted seven historic post-war Mercury customs ranging from the Leo Lyons “Ultra Modern” ’50 to the best-in-class Hirohata Merc. Although there isn’t a hot rod or custom class this year, the event will be filled with rare and exotic collector cars from across the globe. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the 1930s Two-Man Indy Race Cars and Ford Victory at Le Mans classes. If you’re interested in attending, or you’d just like more information, click here.

Last year, the Concours featured some of the most iconic Mercury customs of all time. John Mumford's restored Sam Barris Merc is positioned closest to the camera.
