NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. — Andy Pargh, known as the Gadget Guru, took home a People’s Choice Award for his 1957 Flxible Starliner while participating in the 2017 Concours d’Elegance Show in Boca Raton, Fla.

“This is the only award that is voted on by the attendees and, to my knowledge, it’s the first time a bus has taken this honor over the vintage automobiles on display,” Pargh told RV Daily Report.

The Concours d’Elegance is is one of the oldest and best known car competitions and is held annually in 20 cities around the world. The Boca Raton event raised $9.2 million for Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward County.
