Bentley special is surprise winner of California concours


A 1936 Bentley Special scooped best of Show at the Palos Verdes Concours d'Elegance on 14 September.

The car, a roadster tribute to the Embiricos Bentley, was built by Chalmers & Gatings and is owned by Brooke and Gary Moore from La Canada Flintridge, near Los Angeles.

Other top prizes at the 22nd running of the event went to a brace of Cords, Bob Lavinia's 1932 L-29 Cabrio and the Nethercutt Collection's 1930 Murphy Town Car.

Don Panoz (pictured with the winner) was grand marshal at the Trump National Golf Club, and special classes included Cord, Tucker, Virgil Exner cars and Porsche 911.
