The 7th Annual Cobble Beach Concours d'Elegance wrapped up this weekend.

The weekend saw well over 100 classic cars of various classes cruise through Georgian Bluffs.

The awards announced on Sunday placed a 1938 Mercedes-Benz 540K Cabriolet owned by Robert S. Jepson, Jr as the Best of Show as well as the People's Choice winner.

Cobble Beach Owner Rob McLeese says that for many spectators at the show these cars bring back a degree of nostalgia.

"You see people walking down memory lane, they see a car it brings back memories," McLeese states "whether it's from a movie or some family history there are so many ways vehicles have impacted us."

The Councours d'Elegance keeps a fresh show by only allowing cars to return every four years meaning that each year offers a new showcase of vehicles.

This year also welcomed an air show and a new miniature car class.
