Sunday’s Best in Show award for foreign automobiles went to Judge Joseph Cassini’s 1938 Horch 853 Special Roadster. The Horch 853 premiered in 1937 and utilized a number of engineering advancements that came out of Auto-Union’s racing experience. This example was originally brought to the US by a servicemember returning from Europe after WWII, and was restored decades later by RM Restorations, achieving Best in Show at Pebble Beach in 2004. I managed to guess both the Best in Show, and People’s Choice winners by about 9am the morning of the show, which is a first for me. Frankly, the Horch was a shoo-in, there really weren’t any other cars that could have competed with it. More on the People’s Choice winner later.
