For car collectors, there is no contest the most prestigious Concours d'Elegance at Pebble Beach, a grueling competition but partly happy for 200 lucky owners. An exhibition of 220 vehicles from 33 countries and 15 manufacturing countries selected to participate in the contest, which has raised a sum of 1 million dollars for charities.

This Sunday, the first prize went to a couple from Texas for this car, a 1928 Mercedes-Benz 680S Torpedo Saoutchik.

For me, the best part was neither a man nor a car, but a driver - a woman, a lady of 102 years, Miss Margaret Dunning came from Plymouth Michigan with his Packard 740 Custom Eight Roadster 1930.
