Concours d’Elegance 2014

I attended an antique car show over the summer which made me swoon and wish for a bygone era.  The cars were simply exquisite – the quality, craftsmanship, and style of these automobiles was impeccable.  It is a shame that nothing we own now will be around for future generations to admire – the cars produced now barely last ten years!

My favorite automobile was as big as a carriage, and looked like a carriage on the inside with its grey pinstriped material and burgundy accents.  If I could have chosen one car to ride in that afternoon, this would have been the one.

The rest of the vehicles which caught my eye are captured below.  I could imagine taking that powder blue beauty for a spin along a winding road with an ocean view.

I was drooling over the picnic set up below because the food looked scrumptious – they actually had a fold up picnic table made of wood and steel!  I had no idea they made portable picnic tables.

    I’m so envious. That looks like a fantastic axibit. And I love old cars myself. One of my friends told me, ‘You shoudl get one and put it in your leaving room. That’s fascionable.’
    Well, it is. But I first need to own a house with a leaving room big enough for a car 😉

    1. I love the idea of having an antique car in your house like a piece of art (when you have the space of course). For now, maybe you could get a model antique car – the small ones you can place on a shelf.
