Local Concours...

After spending days cleaning and primping and cleaning some more we headed south to a local Concours show. Leaving very early in the morning and in the rain...yes all over the super clean car!...we arrived at a beautiful location with overcast skies. The rain subsided and more cars arrived and were very carefully parked on their respective greens. Oh I am in heaven...Aston Martins and a Lotus Twin Turbo Esprit!
The British Marque was being honored so they had their very own green for parking. Jaguar was honoring their 75th year so lots of fanfare and very new gorgeous cars for viewing and special ones for test driving.
This black Rolls Royce was a 1959 and very beautiful down to the enth degree of detail.

Of course the new Ferraris were also featured as so many attendees must drool over them.


I love it when there are beautiful restored automobiles that I have never seen before. This one very unique.

This is the most unique automobile ever and it stole my heart! She is a one-of-a-kind 1914 Princess Petite Speciale. I love chatting with the owners of such rare automobiles and learned her entire history. She won an award however I do not know which one as we had to leave during the awards ceremony.
All in all we enjoyed a wonderful day and met so many interesting and nice people.
Next...Bonneville Salt Flats for Finals Week.
Happy week ahead to all who love to live, laugh, love and create art...
