Making the San Luis Obispo Concours Award

San Luis Obispo Concours sought a unique trophy design that would incorporate the flowing shapes of classic vehicles, yet represent the beauty and performance of current and future vehicles.

Steve Posson, a noted automotive artist, created a stylized sculpture based on the "Teardrop" bodies of the thirties. The graceful and distinctive award seems to head upward into the future.

Since its debut in 2012, the sculptural award has explored different materials in its construction.

The first year was in polished pewter, the second year was in lost-wax cast bronze, and following years are in brilliantly painted resin castings.

Each year's awards are the same sculpture, in three different sizes, yet unique in their colors and presentation for Best of Show, Special Awards, and First in Class.
