Concours of America 2012



July 30, 2012

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.

  1. Brandy I came from the WebUpd8 blog, not knowing if you read the fdaebeck there. I'd like to know if it is possible to you to provide the activities overview flip as a separate extension. I'm not a coder myself, so I can't write it myself.On an other note, if you have some coder capabilities to create a hide workspaces switcher extension, that would be cool, but it's not that urgent, and I don't know if you're interested in it.Anyway, this is a great looking distro, I hope it gets traction!

    I would like to know more about events such as this one, since I own a 1979 Lincoln Town Car and love the antiquity of older vehicles. thank you
