Sponsored by:

Murphys, Ca — Whether your brand of choice is Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Opal, Mercedes-Benz or Studebaker, they were all on display at the 12th annual Concours d´Elegance at Ironstone Vineyards Saturday afternoon.

The Best of Show award was given to a 1931 Pierce-Arrow, owned by Tom and Julie Williams of Los Altos.

Pierce-Arrow was an American automobile company based out of New York and known for making expensive luxury automobiles.

Noted car collector and author Jack Passey was the Grand Marshall of this year´s celebration. ?This is the seventh time I have come to this event, and this seems to be the best one that I have ever seen,? says Passey.

?I´m not just saying that because I´m the Grand Marshall. The selection of cars is really outstanding. I have never seen so many rare cars and so many beautifully maintained and restored cars.?

Proceeds from the event benefit 4H, FFA and the California State Fair Scholarship Fund.
