Earlier this week, we brought you part one of the concours, but there was too much automotive goodness for just one part!  Gear up for part two…

This 1947 Dodge, owned by Mike Kinney of Las Vegas, has all kinds of secrets…

… the door handles and locks are shaved…
BCC-DSC_0261r
… and the ignition, windows and door controls, and automatic transmission shifter are all hidden.

You see a lot of ’20s Ford and Chevy hot rod trucks at shows…
BCC-DSC_0251r
but not many Dodge trucks like this 1925, owned by Gary Katsaris of Corona del Mar.

The license plate says horseless carriage, but this 1914 Metz definitely has some horses under the hood.

This car has seen some great times, as is evident from the pictures of it in a variety of special events, including a wedding!
BCC-DSC_0242r
The drive itself is fascinating. The large wheel is from the motor and the smaller wheel is for the wheels. Through friction and position of the smaller wheel, the speed is determined. Pretty cool!

The Packard is one of the most elegant cars out there, and this 1938 Packard 120-D Touring Sedan is no exception.

No one had better command of the lawn than this 1936 Mercedes-Benz 230S/W153 Special Rally Roadster.  Owned by Gerhard Schnuerer of Newport Beach, we can only imagine the stories that this beauty could tell.

This 1949 Cadillac pickup was built in for BSA, the brand that made the bike that is riding in the back.

George Barris was in attendance, and with him he brought the famous Munster Coach.

Is there anything more stunning than this Lalique “Chrysis” hood ornament?  The details on this 1931 Packard 833 Coupe, owned by Richard Walworth of Pauma Valley/Valley Center, are outstanding, but this lady has to be our very favorite part!

Check out this 1948 Packard custom limo, also owned by Richard.  The integration of the chair into the back seating area is superb!

The Benedict Castle Concours brought out an eclectic and elegant mix of classics, all of which were fine examples of beautiful craftsmanship and automotive vision.  We can’t wait to see what next year’s event has to offer!
