Click image for a huge gallery from Day 1 of the Greenwich Concours

I'd never been to a Concours d'Elegance prior to Saturday. If the Greenwich Concours is the only one I'm ever able to go to for the remainder of my days, I will consider myself to be very fortunate. It's that kind of experience. Saturday's focus was American cars, and every era of motoring was represented. From gorgeous Brass Era machinery right up to the latest and greatest from the present day, walking through the concours was like stepping into a time warp where you popped into a different decade every few hundred feet.

Follow the jump for more info.

Packards and Duesenbergs sat next to Cadillacs from a time when Caddy was the Standard of the World. Walk a minute and you'd stumble onto a brace of '70s muscle machines. An AMX next to a Yenko Deuce. A Mach 1 next to a Charger R/T, with an orange Superbird's wing visible a few cars over. The list is endless. From a pair of Packard concept cars to a pristine '88 IROC-Z (no, I'm not kidding), this was a celebration of the automobile unlike anything I'd seen before. Even the public parking lot outside the Concours was loaded with fun stuff..

And if one wanted to get a taste of Europe prior to day two of the Concours, the supercar display included an Enzo, and the Christie's tent welcomed visitors with Steve McQueen's 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso and an unrestored 1938 Bugatti 57C Atalante coupe. The latter two are among the larger group that will be auctioned on the second day of the Concours.

I'll be back, camera in hand.

And speaking of cameras, I'm going to stop telling you about what I saw and instead just show you. After all, you know what they say about pictures and thousands of words. I hope you enjoy 'em. Click any of the photos in the post to go to the main gallery page.

      There are some real nice cars and displays. Good gallery! Packards, Cords & Airflows attract me most but even the old signs and pedal car are intriguing. Keep those pictures coming and thank you!

      Saturday of Labor Day weekend, drop by Auburn IN, a few minutes south of the toll road for the Auburn Cord Duesenberg museum (cheap) and parade (free) to see some gorgeous machinery and schmooze the owners afterward on the town square. It's halfway between Chicago and Cleveland. You'll be to either one in time for dinner after.

        I wish I could be there, Mr Ed and hoping you will be there to get us some pictures.

      This event was nice. The Spyker C8 Spyder truly did drive unlike other exotics, it's a totally different ride. Glad it wasn't raining.
