Capturing Brilliance: A Glimpse into the 2023 Concours d’Elegance Best of Show with Brilliant Stars

The sunlit greens of Pebble Beach provided a breathtaking backdrop to the prestigious 2023 Concours d’Elegance, where history, elegance, and automotive artistry converged. Among the array of classic cars, one standout moment was the presentation of the Best of Show award to a rare prewar 1937 Mercedes-Benz 540K Special Roadster.

John called us forever ago asking if we’d help create the proposal of his girlfriend’s dreams (more on that in a future post), and they were so happy with that (and
