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.

Concours d’Elegance: My Dream Cars

I attended an antique car show on July 28, 2013, at Endicott College. I fell in love with a few of the cars, but the one that truly captured my heart was a red, black, and cream-colored model from the 1920s. I am horrible at remembering the makes and models of cars – I just know I like it when I see it! One day I would love to own one of these beauties; it would be wonderful to take a leisurely Sunday drive along the coast in one these cars. In addition to the car show, I attended a fashion show and took a tour of the Misselwood Mansion. I thought I would share a few of my pictures to inspire you to take advantage of antique car shows happening in your area.
