About this event
The Classic Motorsports Monterey Kickoff is planning to return to beautiful Pacific Grove for 2024!
Each year we kick off the Monterey festivities with our own welcome party, filling neighboring downtown Pacific Grove. Awesome cars, great people, perfect weather, and kind of magic that only happens during Monterey Car Week — what more could you ask for?
Thanks to support from Moss Motors, Centerline International, National Parts Depot, Reliable Carriers, Snake River Classics, Fields Auto Works, Coker Tire, Monterey Touring Vehicles, Griot’s Garage, Tremec, The Monarch Pub, Lithium Auto Care, Pelican Parts and of course the city of Pacific Grove for making this event possible. Register online, bring your cool car, park right on Lighthouse Ave. and hang out with the coolest group at Monterey Car Week. We’ll see you there.
All entries must be accepted by our selection committee. To submit your vehicle for acceptance, register for the event. All new registrations will automatically be waitlisted until evaluated and approved or rejected by the committee in the summer. Any vehicles not accepted will receive a full refund after the show. Upload a photo and details of your car during registration to improve your chances of being selected.
Does this mean we won't accept common cars? Not at all--we've actually made this change in order to increase the diversity of the cars at our show, as we want want to showcase the broadest range of vehicles possible.
What cars are we looking for? We're looking for classic sports and luxury cars, muscle cars, newer exotics, classic 4x4s, and similar vehicles.
