Every year Concorso has a group of awards that range from Best of Marque, to specialize awards, to the ultimate award, Best of Show. This message is about the Doug Magnon Award.
Doug Magnon was a strong advocate of enhancing the adventure of life through the enjoyment of automobiles. To honor Doug’s passion and his steadfast support of the automotive community, Concorso Italiano will be presenting the Preservation Award this August in Monterey. Doug Magnon drove his cars, they didn’t sit. The Preservation Award will be for the owner who was never tempted to upgrade or enhance the cars, but is always tempted to take them on long winding roads. Preservation doesn’t mean it is factory concours perfect, it means the driving experience has been preserved. There may be a lot more miles on the cars than when it left the factory, but the thrill is the same.
