We've taken a close look at the gorgeous concepts cars that turned heads during Monterey Car Week 2016, now it's time for a stroll down memory lane – or more specifically, a stroll along the 18th fairway at Pebble Beach to take in some of the finest specimens in automotive history at this years' Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance draws over 200 magnificent cars and thousands of visitors. Highlights of the 2016 event included 19 original Ford GT40s, a gathering of Bizzarrinis, works from Delahaye, Chapron Coachwork and Lamborghini, plus classic BMWs of both the two- and four-wheeled variety.

Whoever wrote the all too often facile captions under the report pictures either has a rather shallow knowledge of the subject or doesn't care much about it.
