The San Marino Motor Classic is the premier regional automotive exhibition in the San Gabriel Valley and one of the premier concours-level exhibitions in Southern California. Concours d’Elegance (French literal translation, “competition of elegance”) competitions have existed since seventeenth century France and since the mid-20th century in America. In 2017, the San Marino Motor Classic expects to have more than 250 mint condition collector cars and even more spectators than last year. Entrants and spectators are welcome to experience various events preceding and following the dazzling event, including a gala. Proceeds will benefit the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA, the Rotary Club of San Marino, and the USC Trojan Marching Band.
