2016 Benedict Castle Concours Winners

And the winners are everyone

The 3rd Annual Benedict Castle Concours came to a close with record breaking funds raised for Teen Challenge. We are thankful to everyone who came out to our event.

We by far exceeded our $250,000 goal for Teen Challenge. And we want to thank all of you out there who volunteered and made this event the single most successful fundraiser in the history of Teen Challenge.

Mark Vaughn from Autoweek sums up the show quite nicely…

“There were three race cars from Dan Gurney’s All American Racers; there were belly tanks from the lakes; drag cars, muscle cars, low riders, Japanese collector cars, giant pre-war American, giant post-war American, something that might have been a Delahaye, English sports cars, woodies, Mustangs, Camaros, and La Bestioni, Gary Wales’ magnificent creation made atop a 1917 American LaFrance fire truck. There were cars from noted Southern California collections like The Petersen, The Nethercutt and The Mullin, too. There was even a Batmobile and five DeLoreans. This was just about all of Southern California collector car culture in one place. With between 300 and 400 cars in total, the third annual Benedict Castle Concours had it all.”
