The Crossroads of the Car Hobby were in Riverside, Calif. on March 28, 2015 for the Benedict Castle Concours D’Elegance, which was heralded as the first event to present concours-quality cars from every genre of the Car Hobby. More than 300 cars were featured on the terraced lawns surrounding the historic castle including Pebble Beach winning classics and Grand National winning hot rods, prized low riders, perfectly restored and customized Japanese classics, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, a McLaren P1 and George Barris with his Batmobile.
Visitors were treated like royalty with the Nethercutt High Tea and Fashion Show for the ladies and the Petersen Automotive Museum VIP Pavilion with gourmet delicacies. Emcee Dave McClelland hosted the award ceremonies and the legendary Ed “Isky” Iskenderian was the Grand Marshall.
Crowds flooded the venue enjoying Castle Tours, Art Exhibits and honoring the 32 First in Class vehicles as they paraded the Winner’s Circle. Best of Show went to the 1913 Mercedes Model 37/95, Double Phaeton – Torpedo from the Nethercutt Collection.

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.
Thank you to everyone who was involved in the Inaugural Benedict Castle Concours on March 29, 2014! It was a huge success and we know that is because of all of you! You brought out 300 of the finest cars of all types and descriptions from not only California, but neighboring states as well. Our respectable list of sponsors came out in full force to support our event. The most common praise we received was for the 100 plus students of the Teen Challenge program. They assisted our car guys, vendors, sponsors and the public to make the day a wonderful success. Please check out the “About Us” section of this site to find out why 100% of net proceeds go to Teen Challenge.
