(Note from the Ed) – I have a special interest in this article, having seen both of these marvelous vehicles up close during a visit to the the GM Heritage Centre a few years back (article here)
Capping off a wild week with the North American International Auto Show was an equally car-filled weekend thanks to Hagerty. The classic vehicle insurer hosted a few events over the weekend as a part of its move to make the Concours of America the Detroit Concours d’Elegance. This includes hosting the events in downtown Detroit, with the concours at the Detroit Institute of Arts, and Cars and Community, a combination of Radwood and Concours d’Lemons, at Comerica Park. Each event attracted more than 100 cars, and we’ve assembled photos of a large number of the cars at all these events for you to peruse.
The headline even was certainly the Detroit Concours, and it attracted some truly phenomenal classic cars across a wide spectrum. Showstopping classic concepts such as the Buick Y-Job, General Motors LeSabre, Ford Mustang I and Chrysler Turbine Car all made appearances. There were sections for classic hot rods and mid-century customs such as the Dodge Deora pickup truck. And of course there were other pre-war and post-war classics from America and Europe
