The 2019 Ironstone Concours d' Elegance Best of Show is Paul Petrovich's 1930 Duesenberg! Over 500 Photos & Awards Video!!

Murphys, CA...The 2019 Ironstone Concours d' Elegance Best of Show is Paul Petrovich's 1930 Duesenberg J, Murphy Convertible Roadster. On September 28th the manicured grounds of Ironstone Vineyards & Winery Complex played host to the event it was designed for over two decades ago. The Cars, Trucks, RVs, Motorcycles, Vintage Race Cars,  Amphicars, Playboy Playmates & Pink AMCs & our favorite a 427 Shelby Cobra filled the lawns.  I shudder to think of the total value of all the rolling art but there were a few examples easily into the 7 and 8 figure ranges. Some of the vehicles in the field were basically rolling Rembrandts or Picassos except these art pieces roll and drive. This is our favorite weekend of the year in our area.  The history, elegance & beautiful Ironstone Winery setting make this a special event.  We have full video of the awards ceremony, photos of every class winner on stage and at least one photo of every entrant that was on the lawn when we made our passes.  This year all photos in the slide show are at least 1,200 pixels wide so click auto play and sit back and relax through over 500 photos! The slideshow is below the video on the new site...

The History of the Ironstone Concours from the Foundation..

"In the early 1990s, during construction of the remarkable Ironstone Amphitheater at Ironstone Vineyards, owners John and Gail Kautz attended the famous Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. There they met Chris Bock, now Pebble’s chief judge. They returned to Murphys with thoughts of changing their annual youth-in-agriculture fundraising gala into a significant concours d’elegance. As their plans developed, they stopped construction of the amphitheatre and redesigned the stage to accept the weight of automobiles, particularly heavy classics.

In 1993, the Ironstone Concours d’Elegance held its first show on the last Saturday of September. This tradition has continued for more than two decades. The annual event attracts 300+ antique and classic cars from all over the West, with side displays of vintage trucks, travel trailers, motorcycles, racecars and wooden boats.

Ironstone’s honored marques vary from year to year. Names like Stutz, Packard, Duesenberg, Pierce-Arrow, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar and other legendary classics are regularly featured. Emphasis is likewise given to sports cars, early Fords, classic Thunderbirds and Corvettes, coachbuilt luxury marques as well as unrestored and original
automobiles. The event often hosts honored guests like Wayne Carini, Steve Moal, Arlen Ness and others who mingle with the crowd and offer first-hand expertise regarding many of the vehicles on the field.

The Ironstone Concours d’Elegance is hosted and managed by the non-profit Ironstone Concours Foundation. For years, concours proceeds have benefited Central and Northern California FFA and 4-H youth activities, including Horse Classics, Guide Dog and Service Dog Programs, Computer Corps and Citizenship Service Learning.

Within the concours, you’ll find demonstrations and projects populated by young people from local 4-H and FFA groups. There is usually also a petting corral with farm animals. Additionally, the Ironstone Concours Foundation has pledged generous support to the building fund for the California State FFA headquarters in Galt, California, and makes annual donations to the California State Fair Scholarship Fund and the Calaveras County Fair Scholarship program.

The mission of the Ironstone Concours Foundation is to organize and display historic vehicles — to encourage the appreciation of technology, innovation, design and culture — and to support the future of agricultural in California through the involvement and sponsorship of the region’s youth."

      Why would I go to see a bunch of old, white, well off people slap each other on the back? I would go to see some of the young FFA'ers though. I would be glad to bang a few of them.

    I'm sure that they bring in quite a bit of money in order to help our local economy. They all have to eat, get gas, overnight lodging (maybe) and shop at other local stores for other things. They and traveling seniors are usually the only groups who travel this time of year-between the summer travelers and the winter sports season. We should be grateful for folks like these who come into our county and "feed into" our economy.
