The SR2 made my eyes bug out. Wow!

Seriously, this is going to be the best Concours ever. And I’ve been to a lot of them.

I like it, I love it, I want some more of it!

The line up just keeps gettin better & better!! One of my fave weekends of the summer….

How many people know where the name ‘Corvette’ came from?

I’m helping the ladies in the welcome tent…

Corvette and Route 66!

so is this a new class for judgment? I started coming for the Supercars and keep coming for the whole experience….adding MORE supercars will only enhance my time and make me get there waaaaay earlier to see the sights 🙂

If there were any sci-fi movie you watched in the past, and wondered where in reality are those cars …..well today we can see them at the Concours at St. John in 2018!

Congratulations! How cool!

Concours d'Elegance of America

Celebrating the Jet-Age Class of ’58IT’S 1958 AGAIN AT THE CONCOURS d’ELEGANCE OF AMERICA. Those “Fabulous ‘58s” will take center stage at this year’s Concours d ‘Elegance of America at The Inn at St. John’s. Think Elvis, Marilyn, hula hoops and sock hops as America’s premier concours event celebrates the 60th anniversary of this flamboyant and controversial model year. Within this special class, all the noteworthy American brands of 1958 will be featured. It was the year of the Edsel, one of history’s most notorious flops. Other notable entries for ’58 included the soon-to-be legendary Chevrolet Impala, the classy four-seat Thunderbird and the massive unit-body Lincolns and Continentals. “Fabulous ‘58s” will also showcase Ford’s flashy retractable Skyliner hardtop, Chrysler’s finny “Forward Look” cars and the heavily-chromed ’58 Oldsmobile. Consider “Fabulous ‘58s” as much a history lesson as a display of beautiful cars. In 1958, a severe economic downturn, famously called the “auto recession” sent sales tumbling for flashy, flamboyant V8 cars. The much-hyped Edsel would be, fairly or not, the butt of jokes for years to come. Meanwhile, showroom traffic at Volkswagen and Rambler dealers was brisk. Join us at the Concours d’Elegance of America at The Inn at St. John’s, in Plymouth, Michigan, Sunday, July 29 as we honor those “Fabulous ‘58s.”Purchase tickets TODAY: ConcoursUSA.org#ConcoursUSA2018 See MoreSee Less

GM’s jet-age gas turbine dream carsTo be honored at St. Johns Concours d’Elegance of AmericaWidely regarded as three of the most influential concept cars ever created, the Firebird I, Firebird II and Firebird III will make a special appearance at the Concours d’Elegance of America at The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan. This year’s show date is Sunday, July 29. For ticket information, visit concoursusa.org.Designed by Harley Earl, powered by gas turbine engines and inspired by jet aircraft, the legendary Firebird concept cars were a bold prediction of technologies to come.The Firebird I took center stage at General Motors 1953 Motorama auto shows. Aircraft-inspired features include a fiberglass fuselage with a single-seat cockpit, bubbletop canopy and a 370-hp gas turbine engine. The fully operational Firebird I was test-driven at GM’s Milford Proving Ground and also at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.The Firebird II, introduced for the 1956 auto-show season, was a four-passenger car with canopy roof and a radical vertical tailfin. Innovations included a lightweight titanium body, four-wheel disc brakes and a fully independent suspension. A guidance system, designed to work in conjunction with electrical wires embedded in the roadway, previewed the autonomous cars just reaching the American highway today.The Firebird III, introduced for the 1959 Motorama, featured crisply tailored styling and more practical ideas, such as cruise control, antilock brakes and air conditioning. In keeping with the “jet-age” inspiration, the Firebird III replaced the traditional steering wheel with a joy stick between the passenger seats.Pictured above: 1958 Firebird III#ConcoursUSA2018Tickets on sale now at: ConcoursUSA.org See MoreSee Less

This year is shaping up to be monumental!!

Now we’re talking……jet power! 0-Mach 1 in a second!😜 seriously though, it represents the technology of the time when the space race was in full swing!

Really cool! I saw it at GM’s Heritage museum.
