William K. Victor Best of Show Concours d'Elegance
Sponsored by CCI Design

1938 Steyr 220 Glaser Cabriolet
Owner - Peter T. Boyle
Oil City, PA

Bill Victor has been one of the longest standing driving forces behind the Ault Park Concours d'Elegance. Since its earliest days as the Midwest Concours d'Elegance, he has held numerous positions ranging from Concours Chairman, Car Selection Chairman, Chief Judge and on to his many years as Master of Ceremonies. No one involved with the show has a broader or deeper knowledge of all vintages and makes of automobiles than Bill. His advice and contributions to making this show what it is today have been invaluable and it is for this reason that since 2009 the Best of Show trophy has been named in his honor.

Jim Ibold Preservation Award
Sponsored by FIVA/Historic Vehicle Association

1955 Lancia Aurelia Spider
Owner - Steven J. Garrett
Boston, MA

A.James Ibold, known to most of us as "Jimmie", became enthralled with pre-war Alfa-Romeos after watching local mechanic Walter Moeller maintain an Alfa 308 for Indianapolis racing. In the early '50's, Jimmie acquired two, pre-war, 8 cylinder Alfa-Romeos. Jimmie spent 50 years preserving these cars as they came to him. He never stinted on anything either car needed mechanically. Many times parts had to be made from scratch as only 40 plus cars were ever built. Cosmetically, he did all he could to maintain the cars in their original condition. Jimmie loved these cars and drove them often for as long as he was able. We were fortunate to have Jimmie display these cars at Ault Park many times. The Jim Ibold Preservation Award is now named in his honor.

Bill Rudd “Best Vette” Honorary Trophy


1959 Chevrolet Corvette 283/270hp
Owner - Stephen Barrett
Fairfield, OH

Over thirty years ago a small group of people, including Bill Rudd, started the first Concours d'Elegance with a twofold purpose. First, it was an event to raise monies for the many worthwhile activities of the Arthritis Foundation. Secondly, it was an opportunity for local car collectors to socialize and share their interest in cars. Bill and his family have managed the entry gates of the Concours ever since. Bill's favorites were the Corvettes, particularly the earlier straight axle cars. Bill succumbed to the effects of his severe arthritis in 2007. We honor his 30-year participation by presenting the annual Bill Rudd best Corvette Award… an award that continues to be selected by the Rudd family.
