May 24 Looms as Last Day to Register for Huntington Beach Concours; Don’t Miss Out — Sign Up Now!

Time is running out to get your Lincoln ready and sign up for one of LCOC’s most popular spring events—-the Huntington Beach Concours—-returning on Sunday, June 2, with new wrinkles for 2024. Online registrations must be received by noon on Friday, May 24 and mail-in signups and payment by May 24 before midnight.

New Lincoln classes and an improved, faster judging process will make this great event more streamlined and even better than ever. It is one of the best shows in SoCal whether your vehicle is a pristime show car or a daily driver. Few events offer as many real award options for just about everyone.

One of the best aspects of this show is the ability to enter and display excellent concours examples along with daily drivers or works in progress. Awards are given in “Concours” and “Street” categories so all owners who elect to be judged have a chance to win an award. First place winners each take home a trophy keepsake along with a large bucket of show sponsor Mother’s car cleaning supplies. Second and third place winners each receive trophies.

This year’s show will offer special salutes to the 60th anniversary of the Mustang, BMWs of all years and Yamaha motorcycles.

Lincoln classes have been reorganized to provide more opportunity for awards. Class O8A will include all Marks from II through VIII, O8B will be Continentals 1961-1967 Open, O8C will be Continentals 1961-2014 Closed and O8D will be for All Lincolns 1921-1960.

Once again the beautiful Huntington Beach Central Park adjacent to the Huntington Beach Library, 7111 Talbert Ave, Huntington Beach, CA 92648, will host the event.  As always, amazing vehicles, food, vendors and classic motorcycles will be part of the fun.

Registration fee for the Sunday concours is $55 for cars. Spectator tickets at $15 each can be purchased at the gate with children under 16 free with an adult. If you are planning to attend, please let us know at

Why not support this show, have fun and do something great for kids!?  Proceeds benefit the Children’s Resource Center wing at the Huntington Beach Public Library.  The Huntington Beach Concours d’Elegance, with all non-paid volunteers has, since its founding in 1985, raised over $900,000 in support of the infrastructure of the library, which includes learning services, computers, books and other miscellaneous items in support of all children whether normal, gifted, or physically challenged.

Last year a diverse group of eight Lincoln owners converged on Surf City’s Central Park. The jewel tones and pastels of the mid-century vehicles were in full view and, of course, basic black which is never out of style!

Five Lincolns at the show carried home awards. Topping the Concours category was Don Torrence’s 1970 Mark III, followed by Elayne Bendel’s 1964 convertible and Halsey Posadas’ 1972 Mark IV. Among Street entries, Ron Anast took home first place for his 1977 Town Coupe and second place was awarded to Bill Herbly with his 1959 Continental.
