As we countdown the days to this year’s Monterey Car Week and the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance I thought we would have a special Sir Wheelsy contest for the Pebble Beach collectible. I’ve been asked to sell mine on the flight home and have the 2008 edition framed in my son’s room.
The official posters are coveted now and will be priceless in 60 years.
To enter, ”like” the Sir Wheelsy Facebook Page. Share this post or one of the Poster links on the Page if you already “like” us. Links to the Facebook Page and Share boxes are at the bottom of the page, the right side of the home page, or here.
The prize will be one of the limited 2012 official Posters. The more people who “like” the page, the more I can give away. I’ll have a team of accountants working around the clock to make sure this goes smooth.
Watch the Sir Wheelsy Facebook Page for updates on Car Week events and thank you for supporting Sir Wheelsy. -Grant Griffin
The 2012 posters:

The tradition of creating these posters dates back more than 60 years to the first Pebble Beach Road Race and Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance held in 1950. Car enthusiasts have long delighted in the automotive elegance captured in these works of art. Coachwork by Jacques Saoutchik is among this year’s features, so the main 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance poster displays highly regarded automotive artist Jay Koka’s stunning image of William “Chip” Connor’s Saoutchik-bodied 1936 Hispano-Suiza J12 Cabriolet posed in front of The Lodge at Pebble Beach. Koka is a member of the prestigious Automotive Fine Arts Society.

The 2012 Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance poster, painted by renowned artist Barry Rowe, depicts the excitement of early road races with an image that features Bruce and Jolene McCaw’s 1908 Benz Prince Heinrich Two Seat Race Car speeding past another car (a Stutz) near Bixby Bridge in Big Sur. Like Koka, he is a member of the AFAS.
My favorite, the RetroAuto poster. Copyright © 2012 Pebble Beach Company
The 2012 Pebble Beach RetroAuto poster, by Tim Layzell, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the AC (Shelby) Cobra, created when the legendary Carroll Shelby paired an AC Ace with a Ford V8.
A big thanks to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance for the information and the photos of this year’s posters.
