PLYMOUTH, MI - Over 300 rare & magnificent cars on over 200 acres of beautiful, well-manicured grounds. It' has got to be the Concours d'Elegance of America at St. John's.
The focus of the event is historically important and exotic automobiles and the people behind them. It's about their innovation and how they changed the world.
Over 10,000 people are expected & they'll witness the first electric cars, Jet Age convertibles, early Lincolns, Packards, & Chryslers, and a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911 & the split window Corvette.
"We are the only event in the area that is invitation only," says Jim McCarter, executive director of the Concours d'Elegance, "A committee of 30 experts chose the cars and invite them -- no 2 cars are alike. Only special cars are invited."
The total field of cars will reach a value exceeding $10 million.
McCarter adds that not only does it acknowledge the automotive history of our area, but it's, "a great place for industry people to meet and exchange ideas."
The event itself is on Sunday, July 28 from 10am-4pm but there's other events leading up to it. The RM Vintage Motor Cars Auction is on Saturday, July 27 from 11am-4pm. Both are part of Autopalooza.
The action begins Thurday, July 25. For a detailed schedule and more, visit www.concoursusa.org
