The 6th Annual Niello Concours at Serrano was held on October 4, 2009 against the backdrop of the beautiful Serrano Visitors Center in El Dorado Hills, California. With the Italian themed Festa d’Italia bringing a little bit of Italy to the Sierra foothills, attendees enjoyed not only a fabulous array of motorcars but the music, food, wine and spirit of a country far away.
The Niello Concours at Serrano has become a must-see event on the Concours calendar because of its beautiful location as well as being known to have a strong field of historic cars on display. This year’s event featured over 200 automobiles on display, from the 1912 Buick Model 43 to the 2010 Ferrari California Spider, a vast array of vehicles as well as a living history lesson for those in attendance. With entries from all over California, as well as Nevada, there really was something for everyone.
Best of Show went to the 1947 Jaguar Mark IV owned by Howard Clarke of Springville, California and the Tour Award went to Rick Niello’s 1935 Packard.
