Default Concours d’Elegance, USA - 27th July 2014

The roots of Concours d’Elegance lay in 17th century France, when the aristocracy would parade their horse-drawn carriages through the parks of Paris.
The Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John's continues this tradition of exhibiting prestigious collector cars and also offers an automotive art exhibition, a vintage car auction, Mode du Concours and many other social events.

Some pics of rear vintage beauties from the earlier installments:

Love these concours d'Elegance! I've participated myself with some of my cars in a few (much) lesser known concours and twice one first price. Once with my Alfa Romeo Spider and once with my Jaguar. Both these concours were very club events, nothing of this scale.

But I'm also a qualified Jaguar concours judge, did the course. Its' good fun, most owners are very enthusiastic and passionate about their cars!

We were very lucky in the sense that every year the Kansas City Art of the car concours was held just round the corner from our home.
