Peter Mullin, CCCA Member, Wins Pebble Beach Concours

Pebble Beach Concours Best of Show: 1934 Voisin C-25 Aerodyne, owned by CCCA Member Peter Mullin and his wife Merle.

The Classic Car Club of America Trophy from this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance was awarded to this 1932 Austro Daimler 635 Armbruster Sport "Bergmeister" Cabriolet. Shown above are sponsors of the trophy, CCCA Members Joseph and Angela Cantore with the car's owner, Dr. Wolfgang Porsche.

The 1934 Voisin C-25 Aerodyne, owned by CCCA Member Peter Mullin and his wife Merle, from Los Angeles was named Best of Show at the 61st Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance held Sunday August 21st on the 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links.

“Winning with the Voisin is the most special, significant, rewarding thing that’s ever happened to me…outside of marrying my wife (and the Voisin’s co-owner Merle),” said Mullin, a 69-year-old financial services entrepreneur and philanthropist. “There’s nothing like the Voisin interior. You can’t print the fabric in this car; you have to loom it. This interior is going to last a long time.”

This is the first Pebble Beach Concours Best of Show win for Mullin in 27 appearances at the annual classic car event.

“I’ve been showing at Pebble Beach for nearly three decades and this is the greatest venue in the world,” he said. “It’s the ultimate thrill, although I wasn’t sure I’d actually won. “We were sitting in the bullpen with the other two finalists (out of a field of 227 cars), the judges pointed at me and I thought I finished third… and then the fireworks went off.”

Tonight Show host and CCCA member Jay Leno made a guest appearance during the awards ceremony. Actor and CCCA member Edward Herrmann served as the event’s master of ceremonies for the 13th consecutive year. Other celebrities in attendance included top-selling recording artist Sheryl Crow and Academy Award-winning actress Mira Sorvino.

Additionally, proceeds from raffles, auctions, sponsorships and ticket sales helped contribute more than $1 million to charity for the sixth straight year.
