2010 Concours d’Elegance of America at Meadow Brook

In 2010 I attended the Concours d’Elegance of America, at Meadow Brook hall.   This is still the best concours event I have ever attended.   I was living in Detroit, Michigan at the time and the event was held in the Detroit suburbs.    The Detroit location also meant that there were various concept cars and other rarities that may not be at other shows.   The event is no longer held at Meadow Brook hall, but is still in the Detroit suburbs.  I was able to visit again in 2018.

Some of the highlights for me included:

  • The matching pair of Bugatti Type 57S Atalante and other French luxury cars such as the Voisin.
  • A striking Rolls Royce Phantom III.
  • A number of Duesenbergs.
  • The Tucker.
  • Various American luxury cars including Packards, Pierce Arrrows etc.
  • Mercedes 500K special roadster.

I would return in a heartbeat.    These are cars that are rarely seen at shows in America, let alone in Australia.     It was one of those shows where four hours was gone at the blink of an eyelid and there was still more to see.

I was actually hoping to drive my E-Type there (and park it in the parking lot).   It hadn’t quite arrived from Oregon, so I took the black 560SEC.
