BEST OF SHOW WINNER!

BEST OF SHOW WINNER!

Palm Springs, CA

Event organizer Paul Merrigan stands with Ken and Ann Smith of La Jolla, CA, and the winner of "Best of Show" and the "People's Choice Award," a 1936 Delahaye 135 Competition. The twin wins were a rare and pleasant agreement between the event's judges and jus' plain ol' show-goers (like us). In addition to the show's award plaque, the Best of Show winner also received a limited edition print from artist Nicholas Watts of the winning Bugatti Tipo 35 in the 1930 Monaco Grand Prix, signed by Watts and the late racer and NYC restaurateur Renee Dreyfus (founder, in 1952, of Le Chanteclair), who won the Monaco Grand Prix that year.
