Well things are getting pretty exciting for the 3rd Annual Benedict Castle Concours. We are only a few weeks away from the event and everything going on is beyond our wildest expectations! We have 6 Car TV hosts attending and signing autographs including Wayne Carini of Chasing Classic Cars, Barry Meguiar of Car Crazy TV, Chip Foose of Overhaulin’, Rick Dore of Rusted Development and Mike Brewer and Edd China from Wheeler Dealers. This is an all star cast coming together for one amazing show. 100% of the monies raised goes to Teen Challenge, the oldest, largest and most successful drug and alcohol recovery program in America. The program is free to the men, women and teens.
Look for amazing car builders such as Johnny D’Agostino with his Riviera, Rob Ida with his ’40 Merc, Chip Foose with his Ridler winning Impostor, Troy Ladd with his AMBR winner, Rick Dore with the Aquarius (maybe the coolest build today) and so many others. The Meguiar’s Corral of Excellence will hold 40 of the most beautiful customs from all over America.
But that’s not all! We will have the best of the Petersen Museum, the Nethercutt Collection is bringing the Twenty Grand, Peter Mullin is bringing his 1937 Delahaye. We will have the best of sports cars, classics, hot rods, muscle cars, Japanese Classics and even have a special edition this year of Salt Flats Race Cars!
So what are you waiting for? Register your car today and be a part of this event that will make the history books. Or just click on the tickets tab and buy tickets to the show, to the Petersen VIP Pavilion, the Saturday Night Gala honoring Bruce Meyer (our Grand Marshal) or the High Tea & Fashion Show in the Castle Sanctuary.

We had a wonderful and successful day on October 4, 2014 in LA County at the Crossroads in Covina Car Show. We were incredibly blessed at the nearly 150 people who brought their cars out in the 104 degree heat! Great music, great food, fun people and a wonderful cause, thank you to the hundreds of people who helped us raise some funds for Los Angeles County Teen Challenge. One of the best parts of our shows is always the famous Von Hot Rod, Master Pinstriper. He brings so much life, coolness and talent to Crossroads Car Shows. We appreciate everyone who participated and look forward to working with you again.
