Irvine, Calif. (August 21, 2013); For more than 110 years, Meguiar's, the leader in surface care, has offered automotive hobbyists the finest products and accessories for attaining a smooth-as-glass surface and stunning show car shine. That legacy continues as once again, at the world-famous Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance held on August 18, 2013, the majority of the automobiles that were awarded “Best in Class,” as well as the top prize honor of “Best of Show,” awarded to the 1934 Packard 1108 Twelve Dietrich Convertible Victoria, achieved their flawless appearances using Meguiar's car care products.

The 1934 Packard 1108 Twelve Dietrich Convertible Victoria is a unique example of the Packard Twelve, considered to be Packard’s most significant model of the Classic Era. With over 35,000 examples produced, only a handful had custom coachwork. The “Best of Show” Packard at Pebble Beach has semi-custom features including the Raymond Dietrich styled teardrop fenders. A Custom Victoria body was used with this design and was built by Packard as an in-house special.

More than 200 of the world’s most flawlessly restored classic cars were subjected to the intense judging that sets the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance apart from all other car shows. After the awards ceremony, it was discovered that 25 of the 30 “Best in Class” winners that were able to be detailed had done so inside and out with Meguiar's products.

“All of the cars on the field at Pebble Beach represent the best of what the car collecting hobby has to offer,” said Barry Meguiar, president of Meguiar’s. “We’re proud to be trusted enough to help care for these prized pieces of automotive history for more than a decade and hope to continue to do so for many years to come.”
