Here’s the opening round in MCG’s coverage of the Concours d’Elegance of America at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan.
So many fabulous cars—almost too many to take in. Almost. At this past weekend’s St. John’s Concours, the sensory overload began to kick in mere moments after walking onto the show field. Consider this big photo gallery a mere first installment. There will be more, rest assured. A little of what you’ll find in this first group:
+ The fascinating 1930 Cord L-29 modified in period by noted designer Brooks Stevens with Woodlites, tailfin, and Speedster bodywork (featured in the lead photo above). Now owned by Ed Schoenthaler.
+ William Borrusch’s 1953 Lancia PF200C with body by Pininfarina. This flamboyant Italian roadster was one of MCG’s show day favorites. Magnificent.
+ Gary T. Ridell’s 1936 Ford Three-Window Coupe, also seen at the St. John’s Preview. As black and as straight as any flathead V8-era Ford you will ever see.
+ Surely the greatest name ever for a brass age automobile: the 1911 Oldsmobile Autocrat. Top that, Bruce McCall. Displayed by Bill and Barbara Parfet.
Slide show below. Please stay tuned for more galleries and many more cars from the St. John’s Concours through the week.
