Almost two decades ago, one of the participants of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance had the idea of putting the cars on the road beforehand, in a one-day rally to demonstrate that the priceless machines competing for honors weren't just shiny metal furniture and museum pieces. Today, the 19th Tour d'Elegance launched from its starting point on 17-Mile Road in Pebble Beach, in a thundercloud of smoke, revs and power.
