The 2016 Ironstone Concours d’Elegance, Was Arguably Best Ever! 1931 Duesenberg J Murphy Roadster Takes Best Of Show

Murphys, CA…Best of Show at 2016 Concours was a 1931 Duesenberg J Murphy Roadster. The beautiful vehicle is owned by Dairy owners Rob & Jeannie Hilarides from Visalia. Their win was fitting as the Kautz family puts the FFA center stage every year. The 20th Annual Ironstone Concours featured over 300 Classic & Vintage Cars from the early 1900s through the 1940s, 50s & 60s Cruisers & Muscle Cars, as well as Vintage Commercial Vehicles and Motorcycles. All on full display at the Ironstone Amphitheatre and on the grounds of the Ironstone Winery. The very first event we covered for ThePineTree.net was the Ironstone Concours d’ Elegance. It always has a special place on the calendar for us and we try to take a picture or two of every entrant in the event. We also have the Awards Ceremony in HD Video. This event showcases the cars and Ironstone Vineyards as the works of art that they are.
