Providing a rare chance to see some rare metal, this year’s Concours d’Elegance of America is scheduled for July 28, 2013, at the Inn at St. John’s in pleasant Plymouth, Mich. Of course, you don’t have to wait until then to get a preview of some of the classics, as Autobytel was on hand on a recent steamy morning in the Mitten State to put together an exclusive gallery for readers.
Also, if the photos whet your appetite for more, and you happen to be in the metro Detroit area at the end of the month, you should consider stopping by. The gathering is one of just a handful of world-class concours events held in this country each year, and it will showcase some 275-300 of the industry’s most classic classics. And it will mark the culmination of three days full of auto-related activities—that include an auction of vintage vehicles by RM—for those who want to make a weekend of it.
Other entries of note on display will include "Jet Age" convertibles, split-window 1963 Chevy Corvettes, vehicles from the Jazz Age, and pre-1905 cars from England's London-to-Brighton event, first held to celebrate that country raising its speed limit from 4 mph to 14 mph in 1896.
