A striking midnight blue 1931 Cadillac 452A owned by 90-year-old Charles Gillet of Lutherville, Md., was awarded the Best in Show at the 2014 Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance at Pinehurst Resort on Sunday.
The car, equipped with a V-16 engine and purchased in 1986 by Gillet and then restored by Pruiett Automotive Restoration, emerged from 119 vintage cars and a strong Class 4 Grand Classics (1925-1948) field to capture the top prize at the second annual showcase.
Charles Gillet, 90, of Lutherville, Md., is in disbelief after being notified his 1931 Cadillac 452A was named as Best in Show at the 2014 Pinehurst Concours d’Elegance.
Zachary shared their newest video with us Thursday morning, and as you can see, they made things a little tougher on themselves, adding a friend and a bench in between the two shots. And it’s a longer shot. We agree with Eric – this is indeed cool.
A little more about the kids. They are high school juniors and met as freshmen at Alhambra High School in Martinez, Calif. AND GET THIS: Zachary (second shot) has only been playing golf for abouttwo years! Eric (first shot) has been playing for 6-8, he says.
Of course, as great as it is to see us featured on national television, it really means a lot when it’s our followers who advocate for us. Clearly, Matty G and Morning Drive heard from A LOT of you suggesting The Carolina breakfast buffet, and so we thank you.
