The aim of Concours d’Elegance of America is to display a number of impressive collector cars, as well as offer an automotive art exhibition and a vintage car auction. On Sunday July 29th, cars of all shapes and sizes from across the country gathered on the greens of the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, MI for the 2012 Concours d’Elegance of America. A wide array of vehicles were spread out across three greens, representing everything from American muscle to high-end European marques, micro cars to enormous family station wagons, and a little of everything in between. An estimated 10,000 people attended this year’s event which saw top honors going to a pair of elegant 1933 cars. Jim Patterson’s 1933 Delage D8S took Best in Show in the European car category, while Joseph Cassini’s 1933 Chrysler Imperial Phaeton with body by LeBaron won Best in Show for American-made cars. The FIVA Preservation Award presented by the HVA was bestowed upon Robert M. Pass and his beautiful 1927 Minerva AFS Roadster.
