Greenwich Concours d'Elegance set for this weekend

If you're in the New York area this weekend, and have a hankering for some jaw-dropping automotive eye-candy, be sure to head up to Greenwich, CT, where the annual Greenwich Concours d'Elegance will be taking place June 2nd and 3rd on the waterfront at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park.

The Concours is a labor of love for its founders and co-chairs, Bruce and Genia Wennerstrom, and as is always the case, they've assembled a spectacular variety of classic, important and rare vehicles. Among this year's highlights are the 1955 Boano-bodied Lincoln Indianapolis concept (we've seen this car in person -- it's fantastic), a 1905 Packard, a 1948 Delahaye 135M Cabriolet, a Ghia-bodied 1956 Jaguar XK140, and much, much more. In total, some 300 cars will be displayed over the event's two days.

Saturday is dedicated solely to American-built classic, sports, muscle and competition cars. On Sunday, the Europeans take over the venue for the Concours Europa, during which Euro-built sports, touring, and competition machines are featured. On both days, visitors can also check out the Gallery of Contemporary Supercars and Motorcycles, which is stocked with the latest and greatest machinery from a variety of manufacturers. Additionally, an in-water display of classic yachts will be open both days.

Proceeds from the Concours will help benefit AmeriCares, and tickets cost $20/day or $30 for both days. Full event details, directions, etc. can be found at We'll be there, and if you get a chance to make the trip, it should be a lot of fun.
