Irvine, Calif. (September 2005) Year after year, the majority of cars that are awarded "Best of Class" distinction at the world-famous Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance have been using Meguiar’s products to achieve their flawless appearances. An independent survey focusing on preferred car care products has been conducted for more than a dozen years at this annual event, and Meguiar’s dominance was once again evident. With 24 of the 27 “Best of Class” winners choosing Meguiar’s products to enhance and protect their fine finishes, Meguiar’s reign continued in the Winner’s Circle.
Celebrating its 10th year as the Official Car Care Sponsor of the Concours, Meguiar’s has been a longtime supporter of this prestigious classic car gathering. Also, as sponsor of the “Preservation Class” for unrestored, pre-war cars, president and CEO Barry Meguiar presented the Best of Class trophy to Rick and Lucy Rawlins of Balboa Island, California for their impeccably preserved 1906 Panhard et Levassor Type Q Regent Demi-Limousine.
From classic Alfa Romeo’s, this year’s featured marque, to over 200 vintage vehicles, the 55th annual Pebble Beach Concours was a spectacular display of rolling art and automotive history enjoyed by thousands of spectators. "Every year the field of cars at Pebble Beach exceeds all previous years, but this year’s field was by far the world’s most extraordinary presentation of the automobile," says Meguiar.
