After 25 years of exhibiting some of the world’s finest automobiles on the Peninsula, the board of the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance  has announced it is canceling the 2019 concours and putting further shows on an “indefinite hiatus.” 

Instead, starting this month, the PV Concours will host a “Peninsula Cars and Coffee” exhibit on the first Saturdays of the month on the top deck of the Promenade of the Peninsula parking structure.
