The Coyote Creek Concours d’Elegance debuts June 23, 10 a.m.–3 p.m., on the 18th green of Coyote Creek Golf Club, One Coyote Golf Drive, in Morgan Hill, California.

After two successful years delivering the Alameda Point Concours d’Elegance, Kathy and Steve Pedone are looking forward to hosting the event, sponsored by Chevrolet of Stevens Creek, Hagerty, WeatherTech Laguna Seca Raceway, Putnam Leasing, SHM Classic Motors, LLC, Ron Kimball, Fantasy Junction and more.

“The venue is beautiful, and the folks are wonderful to work with,” says Steve Pedone, chairman. He notes that part of the event proceeds benefit Operation Freedom Paws, which pairs four-legged pets with veterans.

The featured marques are Ferrari and Corvette: Italy’s sports car and America’s sports car.

Other classes include: American Sports Cars, Pre and Post War Cars, CCCA, Pony Cars, Imported Sports and Passenger Cars, British Cars, Japanese Cars, Preservation Class, Rolls-Royce/Bentley, Exotics, Race Cars, Motorcycles, Cars of Morgan Hill/Gilroy and Gen-Excellent Cars (Cars of the ’80s and ’90s). A corral will also offer a display area for guests’ favorite rides.

The Coyote Creek Concours d’Elegance is an SCCA-sanctioned event, and only unmodified cars will be accepted for judging.


A Best of Show will be given as well as a Chairman’s Award, The Perpetual Award (to be chosen each year by the GM of Coyote Creek Golf Course) and several Honorary Judges awards. Additionally, trophies will be given in each class for first, second and third place.

On Saturday, the day before the Coyote Creek Concours, “The Drive” takes participants through South Bay’s scenic roads to Weathertech Raceway Laguna-Seca where lunch will be served. Following this, drivers may opt to enjoy the 17-Mile Drive and explore the Monterey Peninsula or return to the Bay Area.

Pedone explains that he wants to continue to attract the automotive connoisseur as well as a younger audience.


For the latter group, displays will include cars they relate to, such as pony cars, select Japanese cars and classics of the ’80s and ’90s. “We want to keep the hobby alive,” Pedone explains, “and attracting the younger generation is one way to do just that,”
