A Strange Concours Coincidence – Or Is It?

by Mike –

In the article yesterday, Classic Car Prices, Market Trends And Events, I used this photo below, just sent to me by Bruce Caron from Palos Verdes, of a Bugatti as an example of a car that a collector would seek to own so they could win Best in Show at a Concours d’Elegance.

I did not know at the time that this actual car did win the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance Best in Show!

I am not making this up. Bruce Caron sent in so many pictures, hundreds actually, from Palos Verdes that I randomly picked a car that could win Best in Show. Or maybe it wasn’t random?

The Winner From The Back

The Best in Show cars are always pre-war, usually swoopy and quite often French so I had a great chance by choosing this Bugatti. Or maybe I have the gift – the ability to pick winners.

I could be a Concours d’Elegance judge by Internet – I don’t even need to be there in person.

The winner is here on the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance site, go see for yourself.

More of Bruce Caron’s photos of this show winner are in the slide show below. You be the judge.
